On Friday 11th November 2011, we launched our recently redesigned website.
We welcome feedback in the form of comments about its content and design.
As we say on the website, we have a three dimensional model of intelligence that can be adapted and used in schools, businesses and for personal wellbeing.
The word ‘intelligence’ is so frequently misused to mean attainment or the ability to be logical or to be academically capable but we know that a fully rounded intelligence incorporates so many other aspects, such as the ability to empathise with others, the need to use our senses effectively, the appreciation that some of our actions and behaviours are instinctual. Our intelligence is also about our own self-knowledge and about our passions and creativity. Intelligence is about understanding and appreciating the world around us, recognising and using our intuition.
It cannot possibly be seen as merely the ability to think, digest and function with facts and theories.
Our website provides an opportunity to look at the programmes of support that we can offer to schools, other educational institutions and businesses. We also have a section about personal wellbeing and are happy to work with individuals, families and groups of people within organisations to consider their own personal wellbeing using this three dimensional model.
There are various articles on the website that we feel illustrate the 3D model. We also have a section of suggested books. We will expand the list in due course.
There are featured writers and books that we think will be of particular interest for those who want to do further reading.
Our “News” links provide information on what is happening in the world with our blog offering a commentary on events and our thoughts on issues we feel are relevant, and there is a section entitled “One to Watch” and “Ready to Listen” which will be updated regularly to give you even more reasons for returning to the website.
Our first “3Di in Focus” looks at one aspect of intelligence that is so often misunderstood and neglected within our schools and society in general.
For those who are interested, there is a section with a quote or passage, whereby you can take time to reflect, and hopefully enjoy the photograph alongside.
Ultimately, we hope that you are interested in finding out more about our three dimensional model.
We are available to work with any organisation or individual who is able to consider aspects of intelligence that we feel are all too frequently ignored or set aside.
If you have any comments about any of the articles of information that you find on the website, please make them via the contact page or the website feedback.
We look forward to hearing from you and indeed working with you in the future.
We are changing the way we think about intelligence in a world that clearly needs a different direction based on shared values and virtues that are vital for effective living.
