I’m excited to speak with positive psychology and performance coach, John Yeager in this episode. John is the founder and chief executive officer of Yeager Leadership which works with sports, business, and education clients.
John holds a Doctorate in education from Boston University and a Master's in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) from the University of Pennsylvania. He has authored/co-authored five books, including his latest The Coaching Zone: Next Level Leadership in Sports which he co-wrote with Jon Cunha.
With more than 50 years of sports coaching experience between them, John and Jon joined forces to create a roadmap for coaches to better navigate the three focus areas: self, athlete, team. The book covers a wide range of concepts drawn from mindfulness traditions, sport psychology, positive psychology, and positive organisational behaviour. It tells many stories illustrating both the challenges that coaches face and the solutions that worked – or didn’t work. The book also provides 48 exercises that you can use to practice as you learn.
