What are the 3D Success Tools and how do they support NorthBridge students? The 3D Success Tools are designed to empower students to manage their time, energy and emotions so they can achieve their goals and experience success. Students are introduced to the tools by their Life Coach. They gain an understanding of the tools and how best to use them, by practicing them in their lives. The tools challenge students to use their goals as their compass to navigate how best to invest their time, energy and emotions to achieve success.
How are students coached to practice the 3D Success Tools? Once a month, at NorthBridge, students meet with their Life Coach to go through a “Team Workout.” A “Team Workout” is a workout for their life, with their classmates, where they are introduced to a 3D Success Tool, experience using the tool and receive coaching on how best to practice the tool to help meet their specific goals.
The 3D Success Tools were developed utilizing the same mythology sports coaches and athletes use to create champions. Instead of training to be a champion in sports, the 3D Success Tools train students to go for success in three- dimensions of their lives: 1) personal 2) academic 3) philanthropic/ service. Students are coached to practice the tools in all three- dimensions so they can achieve balance and stay true to what matters most to them, based on how they define success. One of the most successful coaches was John Wooden, the UCLA basketball coach, and his definition for success is: “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” Just like in sports, each student has unique talents. Through the power of teamwork, NorthBridge students are being coached to be successful in their academics by their teachers and advisors and in their lives by their life coach- a winning combination for success.
