The key to the success of the TMA Method lies in its ability to connect individual talents (psychometrics) to performance indicators, based on skills and performance management. It aims to encourage social and professional cohesion, which is essential within an organization. The analysis, conclusions, and recommendations in question are communicated in a constructive way, based on positive psychology and focused on talents. And this, in an intelligible language for the candidate and the superiors.

In other words, the TMA Method allows an organization to translate corporate strategies and policies into concrete operations. The TMA Method allows alignment between the organization, the human and the culture, with performance and "added value" in the line of sight.

1. The talents and drives of a person.

2. The skills and abilities of a person.

3. The environment of a person.

In order to actually recruit, develop or evaluate behavior, you will need to consider all of these influencing factors.


The first influencing factor of behavior lies in people's drive. It is their need to express themselves with their thoughts and personality. A person's thought process encourages them to make conscious choices and unconscious choices as well. In essence, drives are neutral; it is neither good nor bad to have too much or not enough of a certain drive. However, in a certain environment, a function or role, a certain drive (or a combination of drives) are more valuable than others. Talents are our behaviors resulting from our drives. People are the most distinguished and influential when their behavior derives from their most dominant talents. In other words, the more time a person spends in a role or environment that they prefer the more that they will be engaged in their work and perform to the best of their abilities.


The skills and abilities that someone possesses are the second influencing factor of the behavior that people display. This influencing factor is composed of two elements: the skills on one hand and the cognitive skills on the other. Skills are the behavioral skills that someone has. The extent to which the person manifests and develops them is influenced by the environment and the talents of someone. The development of skills is stimulated or hindered by the environment in which someone is. In addition, talents determine someone's predisposition for certain skills and thus their potential for development. By skills, we mean the cognitive skills that someone has. These are innate and determine in particular if someone can reason in a logical way and is able to unravel and solve simple problems. The predisposition to some skills is partly determined by the skills that someone has. This is particularly true for learning, problem analysis and perspective skills.


The third influencing factor of people's behavior is not in the person himself, but outside it, especially in the environment and the situation in which a person is at a given moment. The environment may be a certain organization in which someone works or learns, but may also be the function or role that someone endorses, or a situation that someone is facing. In most cases, it's a combination of all of this. It can be assumed that the environment in which someone is involved influences the extent to which someone will invest certain talents and skills for the benefit of the organization. In addition, the environment stimulates or hinders the development of many skills. VS' therefore it is very important that a person, wishing to be as productive as possible, work in a suitable and stimulating environment. The optimal combination of people's skills and talents with the environment is therefore essential. The environment is hardly influenced at the individual level. This occurs only to a very limited extent because of a person's behavior; the more power and influence the person has, the easier it is to change the environment individually. A group of individuals can instead influence the environment more easily. The size a group must have to make changes in the environment depends among other things on the size of the organization.

If you want to recruit, develop and evaluate behavior, it's important to understand what influencer factors play a role in people's functional behavior. Within the TMA method, we distinguish three influencing factors that influence people's behavior:
