About us.

We study the science of performance across diverse disciplines to design learning experiences that help people perform, collaborate and lead in a disruptive world.

The Third Factor

In studying the lives of individuals who had reached high levels of moral and emotional growth, Polish psychologist (and our founder’s mentor) Dr. Kazimierz Dabrowski realized that the common nature / nurture debate was missing something: the role that we play in our own development. He called this ‘the third factor.’ Our role at Third Factor is to ignite this desire to grow in others.
