Be Trained

We are learning all the time – usually about being even simpler! We integrate that into what we teach to enable you to have better conversations which are both supportive and challenging. There are some simple principles that underpin these, based on what the International Coach Federation define as mastery in coaching.  Each principle is useful in many different work contexts.  When you use them all at the same time it is called coaching.

Many of the people who come to learn with us will use these principles without ever using the coaching word, and some of the people we train are experienced independent coaches going for professional accreditation. We model what we value in the way we deliver training.  You can find out more about how we work here.

None of our programmes require reading or written assignments.  If it helps your learning to do deeper reading and write reflections, we are very happy to support you with this by making recommendations and reading what you write.













  • Accreditation as a coach is an external validation of your skills.  All 3D’s training can be used towards accreditation as a coach with the ICF, through their portfolio route.
  • Mentor Coaching will support you in your development and is required by the International Coach Federation
  • We recommend that coaches continue to get coaching supervision as part of their ongoing development and offer group supervision online as well as working 1-1
