Welcome to The Thayer Institute for Performance Virtuosity
“high-performance leadership’s modern day Yoda…”
If you’re not one of the many people that have already had their life and leadership transformed by the radical work of Dr. Thayer, then you’re in for a treat.
The genius of transformative leadership, Dr. Thayer remains a well-kept secret to the masses as he devoted his life to his craft and his clients and not to marketing or selling himself like so many tend to do.
And his craft was decades ahead of his time…

- A leadership coach and consultant for IBM, AT&T, Westinghouse, Boeing, Curtiss-Wright, Pratt-Whitney, McDonnell Douglas, Phillips, Shell, General Motors, Sealtest Foods, Hallmark, and West Point.
- A man whose work was hailed by leadership guru Tom Peters as “the most remarkable example of organizational transformation” and whom Vistage chairs called “high-performance leadership’s modern day Yoda.”
- A true renaissance man who played jazz with Stan Kenton, earned multiple PhDs, and had advanced degrees in the humanities, engineering, and psychology.
