Time to Think: Listening to Liberate

27 27 people viewed this event.

Independent thinking is a critical skill in these massively challenging times with political & economic uncertainty, culture wars, climate change, biodiversity loss, conflicts and pain around the world, and so much more to deal with.  Because to make the best decisions we need to think well.  Yet often we don’t make time for it, or the group or organisational culture doesn’t really welcome it, and so we can rush to conclusions and solutions that may not be the right or wisest ones. 

Listening is an equally critical skill, yet it’s hard to master when everything feels and often is so pressurised and urgent. It’s critical because actually it is KEY to independent thinking!

So how do we develop both?

After decades of observation and experimentation, Nancy Kline and her associates discovered that people will generate their own high quality thinking if people around them play their part too. They found 10 conditions (or “components) that reliably create optimal conditions for independent, rigourous, imaginative and courageous thinking, whilst also encouraging collaboration. Each component on its own is impactful; when all 10 are brought together to form a system they are transformative. 

We call it the “Thinking Environment”.

This online introductory session from Linda Aspey, Faculty of Nancy Kline’s Time to Think organisation, offers an overview and an experience of being in a Thinking Environment.

Come along and discover for yourself:

  • How a Thinking Environment can promote high quality thinking and insightful decision-making
  • How it can enable individuals, teams and organisations to see what’s holding them back and how to make progress
  • A powerful and inclusive approach for better meetings, impactful coaching, and thriving, engaged and inspiring workplace cultures.

There are just SIX places. The session is free to attend – register via the link to secure your place.
