Ignite the Third Factor
What is the Third Factor?
Ignite the Third Factor is built around five key areas that Igniters focus on constantly:
- Managing themselves
- Building trust
- Using and encouraging imagery
- Uncovering and working through blocks
- Embracing adversity
None of these is more important than consciously focusing on building trust.

"If I could have read this book 30 years ago, it would have made me a better leader a lot sooner. It took decades for me to realize that viewing every interaction as an opportunity to help people get better is the key to building a winning enterprise. The funny thing is that, as I read it, I kept thinking how the same principles can be applied to helping your kids develop their potential…and there it was...in the last chapter!"
– Gwyn Morgan, Founding CEO, EnCana

"This book is so easy to read that you forget just how powerful the stuff you are reading is--until you hit one of the many paragraphs that snap your head back and make you say ‘wow, I need to read this again.’ There wasn't a single chapter in the book that didn't leave me with at least one strategy I could put to use immediately."
– Daniele Bertrand, President, Dufflet Pastries
"I have known Peter and watched him work with athletes for 25 years and have seen him use his own grounded self-direction to pull athletes to not only perform but to develop as better people. He is indeed an Igniter."
