Coaching, Training and Mentoring Based on The Thinking Environment®

Jane’s coaching, training and mentoring is centred around The Thinking Environment principles. The Thinking Environment is based upon the observation that ‘the quality of everything we, as human beings do, depends upon the quality of the thinking we do first’.  This was so beautifully identified, over 30 years ago, by Nancy Kline, best-selling author of three books, founder of Time to Think, a leadership and coaching consultancy and a most wonderful teacher.

‘The most valuable thing we can offer each other is the framework to think for ourselves.’  The question that underpins both the observation and this framework is ‘how do we help others think well for themselves?’

The Thinking Environment is, in my experience, a powerful leadership framework designed to generate the highest quality thinking from an individual or team.  The difference that helps others to think well for themselves is the way we behave around them.  Nancy Kline has observed 10 behaviours that generate the best thinking in others.  In fact, I have experienced through embodying these 10 behaviours, the quality of my own independent thinking has increased!

What Clients Say

Learning and practically implementing the applications was tremendously useful and it was great to benefit from Jane’s experience that she graciously shared of the different scenarios she has encountered.  It was also very valuable for you to take the time Jane in sharing with us your experience of the best ways to set up each application with the group and how to manage the group dynamic.  Encouraging greater and deeper thinking and sharing throughout the 2 days.  I also really enjoyed the way you introduced our thinking questions into the flow of the course and enabled us to practice the applications exploring these topics, learning and discovering all of the time.
