About The Human Factor

The Human Factor is a unique coaching and leadership service that was born from the desire to better equip forward-thinking leaders, counsel them with in-depth and educated advice and address the challenges that come with managing professional teams.

We believe that people will make the best choices when you create the right conditions.

The brainchild of Christie Andrus-Nakano, Human Factor’s leadership training combines her years of education and experience to deliver programs that leverage differences, and build understanding and inspire action.
