The three dimensional intelligence model is not merely an education and management framework. Learning about intelligences and using that knowledge is a key to personal development and wellbeing.
3Di Associates can provide individual counselling and coaching sessions, either for individuals or as part of a package of support for schools and businesses.
Here are some examples of the training programmes and individual support sessions that we can provide.

3Di and the family
We all understand the complexities of family life; the balance required, the management of a range of emotions, the nurturing of children, the discussions and debates with adolescents. Family situations whether they be positive experiences or trying circumstances need careful management and plenty of thought. Avoiding criticism and maintaining the equilibrium of all is something that we might consider instinctive but actually requires full engagement of the multiple intelligences and the fluctuation along their continuums.
3DI Associates can support family groups and individuals in looking at the models of intelligence in greater detail for the benefit of family cohesion. How can you as a parent, daughter, father, grandparent enhance your family life by developing your own and others spiritual intelligence? What skills do you need to further develop empathy and sharing with others whilst also finding quality time for yourself and your passions?
3DI Associates provide guidance and advice on a range of challenging situations that can be adapted and eased through looking more intelligently at how we cohabit successfully.

Who am I? Who are you?
We are all unique and all function in very different ways. In order to flourish and interact effectively with others, it is essential to know yourself, to like who you are and which aspects are in need of change and development.
Are you aware of your own passions? Are you actually doing anything about them? Do you know about biorhythms and how they may affect you every day? Do you know what you value most? What are your specific virtues? Do you have self-worth?
3Di Associates can provide 1:1 support in developing a true and intelligent understanding of yourself, how you can manage feelings, how you develop your own learning, how you act intelligently, how you recognise your own spirituality that does not necessarily have anything to do with religion.
We can also show people how to support one another in developing themselves, be it part of a family, a school, a social group within an organisation such as a religious group or work.
Finding your voice is an important part of this and we can help you to develop your own self through looking carefully at all aspects of the 3D intelligence model.

Me and We
How do we interact with one another? How are we affected by our interaction with others?
How much do you give compared with what you receive? What is the difference between selflessness and selfishness in relation to your dealings with other people?
There has to be a careful balance between the needs of the individual and the desires of others. Getting that balance right is fundamental to self-respect and peaceful living.
We do not operate in a vacuum and we need to be mindful of the needs and wishes of others in whatever we do, whilst holding on to the need to be ourselves.
How do we manage this?
3Di associates can assist you in maintaining this balance through 1:1 or group meetings that can guide you in specific decisions or provide you with the theory to support you in different situations where the relationship between yourself and others is vital. Our trained coaches can also ensure that you consider and manage this balancing act effectively.

Lifelong learning and creativity
Did you really finish learning the moment that you left school, college or university? Where did you learn to raise children or manage new technology? How much have you learned in the last week?
Learning should be a lifelong experience, finding out and using new things every single day - but how often do we give ourselves the opportunity to do this?
What are you good at? What do you really love to do? Do you know how to be creative?
Developing our breadth of knowledge and skills in creativity is so important to being fulfilled. Considering our attitudes to a range of subjects keeps us alive and interesting.
Too frequently, we are labelled early in our lives which makes us assume that we cannot write or play a musical instrument or create a painting. This is a terrible indictment on our formal education because everyone has the ability to be creative in whatever form they choose, even if they are not going to be a Shakespeare or a Bob Dylan or a Monet.
The 3Di model is based on a life of learning, a life of creativity and a life of passion. We can encourage you in developing your passions intelligently, ensuring that all aspects of the 3Di model are being used to ensure that your learning continues throughout every experience.

Becoming spiritually intelligent
“In our frantic world, how often do we have time for morning meditation? Or even find time to listen to music properly - to really listen to it and to lose ourselves in beautiful uplifting sound? How often do we experience awe and wonder?
To lose one’s ‘self’ in meditation is clearly essential to living well, but our lives are for the most part lived in such a way that we fail to connect with our essence, except on very rare occasions.
To gather our thoughts, to recollect, to re-live, to reflect - these things seem so easy to do, and yet so hard to achieve. And we rarely take time to give silent thanks for the beauty and love we experience in our lives. We take so much for granted, and then feel resentful when life is less than perfect.
How many wonderful experiences do we forget because we can’t afford the time to consolidate our memories? And to what degree do the riches of our best moments then disappear by the wayside - lost in the recesses of memory, never to be recalled?
To allow stillness and silence to enter our souls, to let troubling thoughts and preoccupations fade and disappear. To listen to our inner voices and to allow their intuitions to speak, if only we have ears to listen.”
This is spiritual intelligence, and 3Di Associates can advise you on how you can learn to nurture your own spiritual intelligence.
Spiritually intelligent individuals have clear set of values and virtues that they are aiming to practice.

There are only six basic emotions; anger, fear, sadness, joy, surprise, disgust. We need to distinguish between them and also the feelings that come from such emotions, for example frustration, hurt, envy, cheerfulness, rejection, disappointment. Sometimes emotions combine to create a feeling so powerful that it can be misconstrued as an emotion – such as jealousy.
The 3D model of intelligence emphasises the importance of managing these emotions. We can only function effectively if we are working out how to identify these emotions and control the feelings that come from them. This is one of the hardest things in life to do when we are so frequently confronted with issues that take us out of our comfort zone.
Our trained advisers can help you to manage your emotions and identify ways in which you can deal with and live with the feelings that emerge from these emotions.
