The Thinking Partnership Course

Transforming lives through independent thinking


Who it helps >>

Do You Wish You Had More Time to Think?

Do you find yourself rushing from one thing to another, feeling guilty because you're not really giving your team, colleagues, partners (professional and personal) the attention they need and  deserve?

Do you find yourself barely having time to draw breath between meetings, let alone having the time to think crucial issues through, or even just to let you mind wander and daydream in a way that is nurturing and creative?

If you do, the Thinking Partnership course is for you.

Who the course helps


The Thinking Partnership Course is perfect if you're a leader, manager, coach or mentor who wants to learn how to use the  Thinking Environment in a 1:1 setting.  This powerful approach will teach you how to re-activate and rediscover your own independent thinking. You'll crucially learn how to create a deeply held space for others to do the same.

Delivered online over 3 sessions (a 2-day block, integration gap, and a 1-day completion), the course is a mix of shared learning, discussion, and private pair practice in breakout rooms. It’s limited to just 6 participants for deeper learning.

As Nancy Kilne, Founder and President of Time To Think says

"The quality of our thinking depends upon the quality of the way we treat others when we are thinking."

How the course helps you

There is a myriad of ways in which our thinking is inhibited and this starts very early on in our school years and continues as we work our way into the upper reaches of most organisations. This can be because of hierarchy, dominance dynamics and legacy behaviours that together suppress our independent thinking. 

The Thinking Partnership programme teaches us a way of being that helps to ignite and reactive our thought processes and how to facilitate this in others. 

Based on the work and findings of Nancy Kline, in this powerful, immersive programme, you'll:

  • Explore the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment in depth and work in particular on developing Generative Attention and the crafting of Incisive Questions
  • You'll undergo shifts as a thinker, have epiphanies and learn the power of your own life-changing, thinking
  • You'll experience the deep satisfaction of facilitating this transformational process in others
  • You'll train your attention and presence and learn to fully appreciate the creative power and autonomy of each person’s thinking.
  • You'll learn to participate in and facilitate the Thinking Partnership Session
