The Tri-namics System

Because of its integrated learning approach, Tri-namics is often used to support HGI programs, workshops, retreats and professional and organizational development interventions.

Tri-namics is not another program. It is a bonus to what you have that is already working and takes it to the next level. It can also be used on its own. Tri-namics is a system and resource for follow-up to classroom learning, just in time learning, self-directed learning, ongoing learning and sustained learning. These resources are useful for self, peer or professional coaching, mentoring, leadership and team development and building system wide learning/coaching cultures.  For more information on Tri-namics, please visit the Deberna International website.

Tri-namics: Coaching Triangle System was the first Tri-namics book. It was designed to support coaching triangles. Coaching Triangles consist of three learners who work together to learn something that is important to them. The triangle partners typically self-select based on their intention. As the success of this application grew, organizations adapted this model and used coaching triangles as a follow-up or as part of classroom learning to extend and imbed the learning. Coaching Triangles are a perfect example of using the intellectual capital within an organization, of self-directed learning and self-directed leadership. In addition to the wealth of leadership resources, this book has a sample of a charter, a contract and a process the three learners can use.
