3D Coaching for Education

3D Coaching for Education

We help leaders create a culture in education that drives success and makes a significant impact in the lives of everyone involved.

What Legacy Will You Leave as an Educator?

3D Coaching empowers you to foster high-performing students while making a positive difference in their lives.

We help educators achieve their goals and fulfill their purpose by mastering the art of 3D Coaching. 3D will help you create a culture that fuels success in school while imparting life skills students need to succeed beyond the classroom.

That’s the essence of 3D Coaching and it creates a very significant legacy.

We help educators create a climate and culture for engagement, learning and growth by leveraging proven 3D Coaching principles from the world of sport and applying them to leadership in the school environment.

“Powerful learning. In a world of chaos, this course reminded me of my why. The framework and perspective I gained from this course will provide me a foundation to reach every individual who is placed in my life. I will carry with me explicit strategies to access the 2nd and 3rd dimension with those I know. My purpose statement will be the banner I lead with in my life and work."

The Challenges of Teaching

Today’s educational environment is a pressure cooker. The relentless push to meet standardized metrics robs the joy from teaching. The hyper-focus on driving numbers undermines the process of teaching and creates a culture that fails to ignite curiosity. It leaves educators grappling with the relentless stress of chasing data points instead of nurturing a culture that promotes true learning and growth.

This results in stressed out, overworked and underpaid teachers who feel as unmotivated as they do unappreciated. Frustration and dissatisfaction serve as wet blankets that extinguish their once-ablaze passion for education.

But Wait, There's More!

Behavioral Issues

Striving to promote learning amidst disruptive behavior when there is no respect for authority and the critical involvement from parents is missing.

The Prevalent "Fixed Mindset" in Today's Student

This fear-based mindset hinders performance and makes teaching a LOT harder than it should be. Sadly, it's as prevalent as it is detrimental.

A Lack of Support and Resources

Teaching is demanding. Without adequate support, it can throw life out of balance and cause burnout in all three dimensions.

Teaching today is hard.

Issues like these can certainly make it feel extremely FRUSTRATING at times. But successfully leading people through these challenges also makes it an extremely REWARDING endeavor.

By helping you become a more effective coach, 3D can help you to transcend these challenges, persevere in your purpose and unlock all the rewards that teaching has to offer. But remember, the BEST reward will be found in the legacy you leave behind.

As your students become leaders in their families and communities, they’ll be a living testimony to your generational impact as a 3D Coach. Their lives represent the true value of your reward, and it’s an appraisal in the end that will be deemed nothing short of PRICELESS.

“I enjoyed this course because it helped me remind myself of the 'why'. Sometimes we forget the 'why' and that sometimes can cause us to lose our beliefs, confidence, etc. This course gave a lot of information that I can take back and start to be a mentor to others in my school. I feel like this course will also help educators grow in their leadership skills. This course will help change the culture and climate within the school district. ”

You're the Hero, 3D is the Guide

To overcome today’s educational challenges, it’s important to remember that 3D by itself doesn’t fix anything. Only you can be the hero of your teaching story. Our role at 3DI is to be your guide on the journey.

Since 2014, we’ve successfully helped tens of thousands of leaders clarify their purpose, develop 3D strategies, and shape a culture where performance is high and the love is real.

don’t just take our word for it

3D Institute does it again. I heard first about 3D Coaching in 2014 and it changed my outlook on my coaching. Now in 2023, they do it again with my teaching. This could change a community.

A Plan For Coaching The Coaches

By helping educators improve in the coaching aspect of their role, it will foster a culture that’s conducive to learning and increase their effectiveness with students.

4 Phases to Integrate the 3D Framework

We help school districts use the 3D Framework to shape culture through four phases. However, these aren’t rigid timelines as teams move at their own pace based on their existing culture.

1 1: Imagination
2 2: Exploration
3 3: Implementation
4 4: Operation
1: Imagination


Target Group: Administrators, Directors, Decision-Makers

Key Concept: Leaders as Visionary Pioneers

Objective: Empower organizational leaders to rekindle their visionary drive, fostering an understanding of how the 3D framework facilitates the journey towards their envisioned culture. It's a phase dedicated to reimagining the dream culture and strategizing the team's progression toward this future vision.

3: Implementation


Target Group: All Staff

Key Concept: Unity in the 3D Journey

Objective: Having secured leaders and ambassadors, it's time for all team members to embark on the 3D Journey together. This phase involves implementing comprehensive 3D training for the entire team, fostering a unified purpose, aligning efforts, establishing a shared language, and embracing a common framework, regardless of roles

You'll be eager to get out there and start putting this into practice right now. I would highly recommend this course for any coach, or even more so anyone who works with young students. This is a framework for being a better mentor, not just a coach."

Here are a few of the treasures you'll find on the 3D Journey

A Process for 3D Decision-Making

Develop a common language and 3D approach to your decision-making, one that fosters creativity and strategic thinking, crucial for effective coaching.

Our strategies ‘work,’ but this course isn’t just about driving performance; it’s about personal transformation. It prompts introspection, guiding you to rethink your role as an educator BEFORE integrating 3D strategies into your plan. The process matters.

For most, this is where the 3D Journey begins.
For others, this is where it can begin again.
