The Game Plan

Most of the leaders who are already signed up learned about this opportunity by attending one of the seven leadership breakfasts sponsored by The Joseph Company. These events took place between 9/3/21 and 4/29/22 in St. Joseph, MO.

Each breakfast was recorded, produced and loaded into a course format so people can watch them in order if they choose. There’s also a cool documentary-style video in Module 1 that tells the back story. Check out the course outline on this link to see the topics that were covered in this series. They’re all about how we can work together to make a positive impact on the culture of our St. Joseph community.

Between now and September, we are inviting ALL community leaders to learn about this initiative by viewing these presentations. Please help spread the word. The last presentation called “3D Team Captains” explains how leaders can bring this to their organization as well.

As you view this course on St. Joseph, please reach out if you would like to connect. We hope you will be inspired to gather others from your sphere of influence and join us on this journey toward making a positive change in the CULTURE of our community.

For all who will accept the invitation, welcome to the 3D Journey!

Here’s the simple 3-step plan:

Enroll in the 3D Community: St. Joseph, MO course to learn more about this journey and receive training for “Team Captains.”

Identify how many teams you want to participate from within your organization. A team is small group of 3-12 people, plus a 3D Team Captain.

Starting in September 2022, both the SJSD and leaders from 100+ organizations in the community will execute the following strategy:

  • Each team member will complete one online module per month on their own time as an individual.
  • Team members will then meet as a small group at least once per month to process the content together. This small group discussion will be facilitated by a 3D Team Captain from your organization who we have trained.

The goal is to create a ground-swell of leadership across the community who have clarified their purpose, are aligned in effort and begin speaking a common language around a shared framework.

Who is the 3D Institute?

The 3D Institute was established in 2014 to come alongside sport administrators in a quest to help meet the growing professional development needs of the international coaching community. Historically, 3DI has trained sport leaders from over 60 countries to lead according to the 3D framework. The 3D framework empowers leaders to maximize the performance of their teams and leave a powerful legacy of impact in the lives of those they lead. Through this project, in partnership with The Joseph Company, 3DI is contextualizing the 3D framework to be made applicable for the business community as well.

What is the 3D Framework?

The 3D Framework consists of three dimensions: Skillset, Mindset, and Heartset. The framework helps leaders be intentional about being fundamentally sound (1st Dimension), skilled at coaching the mind (2nd Dimension), and focused on capturing the heart (3rd Dimension).

What is the 3D Journey?

The 3D Journey is a journey of learning to understand the 3D framework. It consists of engaging in the process of rethinking and reforming in our various leadership roles in an intentional effort to help the people we lead to thrive in all aspects of their being.

What is The Joseph Company?

The Joseph Company is the company of leaders from our community who are taking the 3D Journey together. To help fund this initiative, The Joseph Company is also a “Field of Interest Fund” set up at the Community Foundation of Northwest Missouri. This fund has been resourced by generous community members who want to make this training available at no cost to any company/organization in Buchanan County, MO who desires to participate. Click here to learn more about the The Joseph Company’s origins.

Who should participate?

For now, think “coaches.” In other words, leaders who have responsibility to help coach or lead a team of people in your organization. We desire for the leadership within organizations to take this journey first.

What is the time commitment?

Online training modules will take participants about 30 minutes per month to complete on their own time. The small group sessions will generally last about one hour per month, and will be conducted at at time and location that works for the participants in your organization.

How much does this cost?

Thanks to generous donors within our community, there is no financial cost to participating organizations. The only cost is to value this initiative enough that you give ample time, attention and thought to how this training should be implemented to impact your organization and the community at large.

What ongoing support will be provided?

At the April 29th breakfast for facilitators, we answered questions, explained the online registration process, went over supporting resources, did some initial training, and established a calendar for ongoing support. This was recorded, and can be viewed in the last module of the 3D Community: St. Joseph, MO course.

Also, in September 2022, we will launch Season 2 of The Joseph Company leadership breakfasts. This will allow us to continue uniting and empowering our community leaders to make an impact.
