Shaping Culture Using the 3D Framework


Course Description

This course lays out a practical strategy to move your cultural vision forward from “survival” to “significance.” Along the way, you will pick up key insights about:

  • understanding the Formula for Change
  • how to create discontent to gain inertia
  • casting a compelling vision to inspire
  • developing tangible first steps forward
  • lowering resistance and creating buy-in
  • stabilizing your culture through training
  • mentoring people to foster growth
  • establishing a framework for continued learning
  • creating a common language to reinforce values
  • effectively providing organizational care
  • prioritizing your purpose over your goals
  • other practical things you can do
    (i.e. running effective meetings)


Everyone agrees that “culture” is a key determining factor for any organization who is seeking to successfully fulfill it’s vision. While the importance of culture is well understood, understanding how to intentionally SHAPE culture to accomplish the vision is certainly not automatic. Your culture will be a combination of what you create and what you allow. This course will help you CREATE an intentional culture that will empower everyone in your organization to flourish… in all 3Dimensions.

I think the program is great. It is very professionally done. I have coached for 35 years and feel this program has really helped me. In some cases it reaffirmed things I did as a coach and in others gave me new and better approaches.

The content given in the course is easy to see within our own programs and the strategies are simple enough that it is easy to implement as long as the coaches continue to enforce it.

In addition to the 3D framework supporting coaches as they flesh out their plans supported by their purpose, the framework can also be applied to the world beyond athletics. When an organization's focus becomes it's foresight, it's purpose promotes a trust that creates human growth and professional development. This is another excellent 3D course for leaders.

Great addition to the 3D framework course. Everyone talks about culture in every program, but few can define it as well as I feel the 3D institute did, or can explain the significance in making the vision become a reality as well as the folks at 3DI. I cannot imagine you will have something as life altering for those in athletics like the initial course, but please continue to come up more content like this in the future. The journey, for me, was full of great reflection on how I do things and very insightful to things that we can do better.

3 Dimensional Coaching is a tremendous architecture for athletic coaches as well as any manager who is trying to establish a team in business to execute a game plan. The research that is represented in this platform is supported by a very understandable dialogue that can be had with your team in creating the WHY, the HOW to achieve a common purpose. This is so well done and provides a great platform for execution.

I really appreciated the opportunity to hear from all 3 professionals. I'm looking forward to spending time with the group in KC and it is my opinion that the flow of material in this culture piece may be the best course presented to date by 3DI. Great Job!!!

The 3D course on shaping culture and sports will bring them

Take this course and let the 3Dimensional Framework change your paradigm for coaching. It’s life giving and your coaches and athletes will benefit in ways that transform your school or organization. There are 25 outstanding segments that you will treasure as a coach, administrator, manager, and/or leader. Once you start, you won’t want to stop until all 25 are completed. It truly is that good!

I have been fortunate to see 3Dimensional Coaching materials grow from the very beginning when it was established. I have gone through every program that 3Dimensional Coaching has ever offered. I have never completed a program and felt like I wasted time, I always find new ideas and feel refreshed and affirmed with the foundation I have built using the 3D Framework. Its not a magic pill, but does provide a framework that can produce magical experiences and results!
