Yagos & Associates, is a consulting practice that focuses on change management initiatives to develop and deepen relationships that are built on a foundation of high trust. The most critical challenge facing leaders today is the need to transform the culture of the workplace. Employees want to work in an environment that gives their lives meaning.

This culture demands an evolved leadership approach of building relationships on a foundation of high “trust”. We focus on:

  • Building trusting relationships at every level in the organization,
  • Creating cultures of engaged and talented individuals and teams,
  • Coaching leaders throughout the organization to new levels of performance,
  • Delivering (insert keynote link)keynotes that inspire individuals to change their lives, and

Trust is one of the most powerful ingredients in a relationship. It can deepen the relationship by engaging each other to reach new levels of commitment, and yet a very fragile ingredient that can be destroyed in an instance. We believe that trust is built on the pillars of honesty, respect and consideration. If we build trust we can dispel fear and transform individuals and organizations.
