motivation solutions for teams


Helle Bundgaard
Founding Partner
Following a successful career as a senior sales and business development executive for Fortune 500 companies, Helle decided in 2003, to pursue her passion for human behavior and motivation.

Her goal was to bridge theory and practice by developing non-complex tools which, used in a simple way, could uncover behavioral patterns and personal motivation factors – something that often feels like a complex and confusing process.

Four years of intensive research on the brain’s reaction and response patterns, combined with known psychological and motivational theories, led to the launch of the Hierarchy of Motivation© and the Motivation Factor® Methodology. Both are the foundation of Motivation Factor as we know it today.

In addition to heading up Motivation Factor, Helle is External Lecturer at UNIL – University of Lausanne, SIM – Singapore Institute of Management and member of the international coaching team at IMD – International Institute for Management Development in Switzerland, where she coaches senior executives from around the world.
