One key to successful leadership is continuous personal change. Personal change is a reflection of our inner growth and empowerment.
Robert E. Quin
The Quality of everything human beings do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first.
The Implication of this observation - The most important expertise we can acquire, then, is the ability to help people think for themselves, with rigour, imagination, courage and grace.
The obvious question then is – how do we help people to think for themselves?
An Answer – The single most important factor in whether or not people can think for themselves well is how they are treated by the people with them while they are thinking.
We have found ten behaviours, ten ways of being, that seem to have the most powerful effect in igniting the best independent thinking in people. We call this a Thinking Environment. A Thinking Environment is a framework consisting of ten components that we consciously put in place and it is the most valuable thing we can offer each other to encourage independent thinking.
Whether it be in developing a strategic initiative, engaging with customers or suppliers, leading or working in teams, or focusing on your own personal growth, we believe that the application of these skills remains relevant and absolutely necessary. Through our programmes we teach people how to create Thinking Environments in their organisations, their teams and their lives.
Through observation and research since 1973 around the world, the Time To Think collegiate have identified these behaviours and developed programmes that teach their application to the work of teams, leaders, coaches and individuals. We have also developed an acclaimed Executive and Peer coaching process.
Time To Think is an international leadership development and coaching company. We specialise in the process called The Thinking Environment. We have offices and associate Consultants and Coaches in the UK, USA , Australia and South Africa.
Do not be fooled by the simplicity of this process It can unleash the power of your whole organisation. (Telecommunications Executive)
