What is the Thinking Partnership Programme?
Developed by Nancy Kline and Time to Think this is the step by step process for liberating the human mind to think for itself with unprecedented clarity, originality and rigour. This highly participatory course teaches it in depth. This profoundly impactful way of being a coach/listener is supported by a growing body of neuropsychological evidence that helps us to understand how and why the quality of one person’s attention impacts on the quality of another person’s thinking, on their decisions and actions.
What will you gain?
This way of being is regarded by many as an essential coaching and mentoring skill ideal for all those managing and leading people: the training and application of it is also a valuable personal development experience. This course equips you with skills that can apply in many contexts: 1-to-1 coaching and mentoring, day to day discussions, team leadership and management, client relationships, even your personal life. Essentially it improves communication and understanding on all levels.
Who is the course for?
Coaches, mentors, professional advisers, executives, managers, HR and OD professionals, health and other consultants; all those who want to become skilled in creating the ideal conditions in which thinking will flourish, and/ or to deepen existing skills. This unique course is highly participatory, professionally confidential, and teaches this process in depth.
