What is Yeager Leadership?

We partner with our clients to help them operate as high performing individuals, teams and organizations. Yeager Leadership (YL) works with a variety of groups: corporations, educational and athletic programs, law enforcement and municipalities. Our YL leadership management firm helps organizations become more aware of how their ability to leverage strengths and culture, and to manage "healthy tensions," leads to maximizing engagement, capacity and performance.

Why we do what we do.

Yeager Leadership believes that individuals, teams and organizations flourish when they have an integrated focus on self, others and the larger community.

Simply said, we help clients Focus. Shift. Maximize.

Finding common ground and "connecting the dots" with our clients is a passion for us. Connecting people, their projects and the teams or departments within their organization generally creates opportunities for positive outcomes. This establishes a sense of trust between us and within the client’s organization.
