The self-aware leader.

Combine the self-assessment we've used with the 4-time Olympic gold-medal-winning Canadian Women's Hockey Team with 1-on-1 coaching, optional classroom sessions, and sustainment to develop your leaders to a whole new level.


The TAIS assessment and debrief has formed the bedrock of our work with Olympic teams and is an experience Hayley Wickenheiser affectionately described as 'the most stressful part of the four-year Olympic cycle'


Participants get thorough, personalized insights through the TAIS self-assessment, 1:1 time with a highly skilled coach and optional classroom learning.

Learning that sticks

Participants translate self-awareness to an action plan and get ongoing support and accountability through our proprietary Peer Coaching and Trainer as Partner programs.

Know yourself to collaborate better with others

Excellent performers in sport and in business are seldom well-rounded individuals. They excel by understanding their strengths and learning to maximize them within their teams. They also understand which of their weaknesses have the potential to derail them and create conflict with others, and then develop systems or strategies to better manage those challenges.


In addition to newfound insights, The Self-Aware Leader program provides practical tools like the Player’s Card shown above that allow people to share their newfound insights with others and raise the water line for collaboration.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the link between self-awareness and performance
  • Identify what they tend to pay attention to, and miss, when under pressure
  • Clarify the type of work and environment in which they will do their best work
  • Define the conditions that create pressure and drain energy for them
  • Perform more effectively in situations outside of their comfort zone
  • Develop strategies for decreasing errors they tend to make while under pressure

  • 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.
