Creating leading talent

what we do


“The future is shaped by our thoughts and actions of today. What we did yesterday influences the way we live tomorrow. Even times long gone determine the present."

MoTiv is a centre for personal development in Education and Business at the Delft University of Technology.

Our mission is to challenge both students and professionals on meaning and motivation to stimulate personal and professional growth. This will lead to a better understanding of personal creative and innovative powers, giving way to the existential pleasures of engineering.

We value professionalism and personality, dedication and commitment, the magic and the tragic, trust, and the inexhaustible effort for improvement and innovation.

Our programmes focus on soft skill training, teamwork, communication and personal leadership. They are designed for both groups and individuals.

To answer your demands, we design our training programmes and public meetings very thoroughly in collaboration with members of the target group or the commissioner. Contact us for an interview, a lunch, or to discuss other questions.

The MoTiv staff is experienced in working with students and lecturers at TU Delft and Haagse Hogeschool, focusing on the practical value of motivation in science and technology. The meaning of technology for students and in our society is our concern.
