Coaching.

For over 30 years, we've worked with organizations of all sizes to embed a culture of coaching. Our leadership development programs are designed to meet learners in-person, virtually, in blended learning journeys, or asynchronously so that everyone can learn to coach like the best.

  • 3x4 Coaching is at the heart of a program that we have delivered to over 1,000 leaders at one of the world’s largest banks. Half-way through delivery we needed to move all sessions from in-person to virtual due to COVID-19. It has been a huge success and is now rolling out to an even broader audience. It is one of the best programs I have seen.

  • From helping our clients learn about resilience, the power of pressure and agility by playing sledge hockey in the Rocky Mountains to helping our leaders become world-class coaches, Third Factor's faculty and programs are a driving force in influencing our culture. When I think of high performance, I think of Third Factor.
