The Human Factor stands for utilizing the existing human potential and developing strengths and talents.
There is already an enormous amount of potential within organisations, teams and individuals. This potential is not optimally utilised because the focus is typically on what is not working well. This greatly impacts team commitment and performance in a negative way.
With our unique approach we fix this problem, transforming organisations, teams and individual into high performance, self-organising and happier.
The Human Factor is a “High Performance Development” organisation.
We are and experienced and energetic team with trainer, coach and advisor roles.
We have a pragmatic approach, a creative and clear view of things, and build high-performing teams and organisations from available talents and relationships.
Our unique approach
International studies have shown that low efficiency, low involvement, high absenteeism, high turnover and lagging business results are often the result of not optimally activating and deploying the available employee potential within an organization.
That is why we focus on the deeper talents and the development of these talents for both individuals and the organisation.
We have a strong belief in the combination of Ambition, People and Context and have a scientifically based* and proven effective approach. We keep it simple and pragmatic.
Our approach results in higher employee involvement, better team and business results and more happiness at work.
Customer cases & references
Marjolijn ensures a good balance between structure and flexibility in her program. This makes the program really tailored to the needs of the team. She pays attention to everyone's personal story and links this to practical issues that the team has to deal with. In this way, the training contributes to everyone's personal development as well as to the growth of the team. Highly recommended!”
In these types of processes it is inevitable that there is conflict in a team, but she also supervised this well and professionally. With her input and guidance, we have taken really great steps as a team."
This journey has given me insights into my unique combination of drives, values, mission and talents. Marjolijn has the unique gift of subtly sending you to those special places, without you realizing it yourself. Especially in our conversations during the rides to these places, Marjolijn gave me practical tools with which I can use my talents in practical situations. We also took some nice pictures and included them in a kind of photo album… my powerbrand. An album that I cherish, it is a tool for me to stay aware of my talents and to use them.
During our trip I had a sense of security and a feeling of personal growth. I am very grateful to Marjolijn for that and it made it a journey to remember for me. "
It is Marjolijn her genuine passion to help you find and nourish your (sometimes hidden) talents. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
Both online and face-to-face she has let me reflect and gave me insights that I could really use further."
In addition to these practical handles and (unexpected!) Results that are extremely valuable to us, it was always nice to have these sessions with you. You managed to create an open atmosphere where we could go very deep but also laugh a lot with and about each other :-).
Marjolijn, it was a joy to work with and it is fantastic to see with how much positive energy and passion you do this; you are an inspiration to many! "
It was a very informative and interesting session, where we learned a lot about the functioning of teams, what makes a good team and she also looked at each team how they can utilize their potential even better.
Thank you Marjolijn. I look forward to seeing you again during the next program."
This is such a special opportunity to look more deeply at our passions, talents, and values and to identify our own Deep Talents, and to get to do so with such a remarkable group of talented women.
I can highly recommend your approach to individuals and teams who want to take their leadership journey to the next level."
On the one hand we made substantive preparation in terms of problem definition, stakeholder analysis and the initiation and implementation of the step-by-step plan. On the other hand, and perhaps even more importantly, we linked our sales activities to the talents and passions of all involved in collaboration with Marjolijn. This way we know exactly who can best be deployed during the different phases of the sales process.
This approach has contributed a great deal to welcoming some fantastic customers, but we still apply it every day in preparation for the next one. A wonderful success in co-operation and execution".
Marjolijn's guidance was immediately familiar, casual, enthusiastic and very clearly focused on the needs of the participants. In doing so, she seemed to be able to draw from a large source of exercises and techniques that were immediately applicable in practice.
It has been a very useful year for me which has benefited me not only on the business side but also personally."
The result is that she acts as an adhesive within the organization and between the divisions. She does this by getting the best out of employees by activating their talents for the activities at hand. By also connecting groups together, you achieve the best result for the organization."
I am so happy that I could use my Power Brand to show which activities would be suitable for me. As a result, I started performing new tasks for the team: I can start working on process improvement and automation. Perfectly suited to my talents and the needs of the organization!"
This allows me to purposefully look for ways in which I can approach activities and targets from my talents, even if that does not seem obvious at first sight.
This not only leads to much more fun, but also to better productivity. I would highly recommend it! ! "
Marjolijn has a unique talent to be able to coach the teams based on their needs. Both teams were incomparable in terms of dilemmas and Marjolijn coached them in her team coach sessions based on their specific needs. In doing so, she offers real customization. Marjolijn does not shy away from letting the team storm, of course in a safe way for all participants and always with the aim of realizing the development step desired by the team itself.
By incorporating a zero measurement and an effect measurement, it could be established in both teams that team involvement and team collaboration within the teams has improved significantly. At the time of this writing, I am starting a new team with her, I am already looking forward to that!"
I was able to experience an incredibly moving, special and beautiful journey with Marjolijn. She knew exactly how to switch certain buttons with me and that way I got to know myself better and what I have to offer. And besides, I also learned how to apply all this in this dynamic world.
Marjolijn, thank you so much for all your inspirations and beautiful things that I have been able to learn from you. I am extremely grateful that I was allowed to take this journey with you.
Marjolijn provides a safe but vibrant environment in which teammates are challenged to jointly investigate where the team stands, what is needed to make better use of talents and to learn how to have a constructive conversation with each other. This has helped the team to position itself in the organization, to distribute the work in a balanced way and to be proud of the performance that is delivered.
In addition, Marjolijn has also helped me grow in my role as a manager in many one-on-one conversations. I now have a better understanding of my team's needs, my own pitfalls and I have good tools to guide the team further.

The atmosphere was not bad, but after 15 years of running together in a certain direction, we thought it would be good to see whether we were still working together effectively and to everyone's satisfaction. At the start of the process, Marjolijn knows how to create the all-important atmosphere in which everyone feels safe.
With a special form of loving confrontation and very focused assignments, Marjolijn has ensured that there is more mutual understanding in the team, the team has become closer and the overall atmosphere has improved. That is exactly what you want as a company when you start such a process.
Marjolijn is a fantastic coach who knows how to strike the right chord with both personal issues and organizational (professional) issues, so that results are guaranteed.
I wish everyone Marjolijn!
