“The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. And the quality of our thinking depends on the way we treat each other while we are thinking.”
Years of experience and plenty of credible research (for example, the Aristotle Project at Google) tell us that if you want to get the best from everyone then creating the best conditions will inevitably help it to happen. Psychological safety, structure & clarity, dependability, meaning and impact are essential to great team performance - all will build that vital trust.
The Thinking Environment®, discovered by Nancy Kline of Time to Think, provides astonishingly effective conditions for people to think well together and to build courageous connection, engagement and trust.
We specialise in introducing The Thinking Environment into forward-looking organisations that want to build truly effective teams and groups. Programmes include:
Short Programmes & ConsultancyTime to Think Bite-Sized Workshops (1.5-3 hours): An interactive event to introduce the principles of the Thinking Environment to your organisation.
Transforming Meetings (1 day): For boards, groups and teams on using the structure of a Thinking Environment for significantly better meetings with better outcomes.
Bespoke consultancy and events: Working in a Thinking Environment with you so you experience deep learning and get tangible outcomes. We can provide workshops, sessions within management and leadership development programmes, or offer frameworks for assessment centres, offsites and staff conferences.
