Jeffrey Yip is an assistant professor of organizational psychology at Claremont Graduate University. His research is focused in the areas of mentoring, leadership, and career development. In particular, he studies how interpersonal processes (such as feedback, social support, attachment, and accountability) contribute to outcomes of effective and ethical leadership.

Jeffrey received his PhD in Organizational Behavior from Boston University, his master’s degree in Human Development and Psychology from Harvard University, and master’s and bachelor’s degrees (with upper class honors) from the National University of Singapore. Prior to academia, Yip worked in research and consulting roles for public and private organizations. He has worked in leadership development at the Center for Creative Leadership and as the co-founder of the Halogen Foundation in Singapore, and he was a section commander in military service.

Yip has received numerous awards, including a Fulbright Scholarship, the Arnon Reichers Best Paper Award by the Academy of Management, a fellowship by the Learning Innovations Laboratory at Harvard University, and an honorable mention for the Douglas McGregor Memorial Best Paper Award. Yip’s research is published in peer-reviewed journals in management and organizational psychology, including the Academy of Management Annals, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, Organizational Dynamics, Nonprofit Management and Leadership, and the International Journal of Selection and Assessment. He is also the author of two leadership guidebooks: Return on Experience: Learning Leadership at Work (Center for Creative Leadership, 2009) and Leadership Wisdom: Discovering the Lessons of Experience (co-authored with Rola Ruohong Wei, Center for Creative Leadership, 2008).

His current projects includes research on the role of attachment dynamics in work relationships, the relational antecedents to effective and ethical leadership, and the role of character strengths in mentoring and leadership.
