  • 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.

    President UNC Executive Development

  • At Queen’s Executive Education, our ultimate goal is our clients’ success. Third Factor has been a major contributor to that mission for decades, and 3x4 Coaching represents another important step forward for our already world-renowned management education programs.

    David Sculthorpe

    Executive Director Smith School of Business

  • Third Factor is the best at what they do. The Self-Aware Leader program has had such a positive impact on our business, we've begun using the TAIS as part of our onboarding process for leaders and made it a key part of the way we do team building. We wouldn’t have the strength of leadership we do without Dane, Peggy, Cyndie and the entire team.

    Ben Cowan-Dewar

    Co-Founder & CEO Cabot

  • 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.
