What others have said…
“In attending Jane’s Time to Think Foundation Programme, I valued the energy release from thinking out loud, the excitement generated through application and the approach has for all relationships in my life. I discovered that questions, carefully framed unlock so much potential. I will apply these applications for leadership development, collaborating with friends and most of all with my clients.”
“Jane’s Developing a Thinking Environment 3 day programme provided a small safe environment and in particular I valued the quality of the interactions with Jane and with my fellow delegates, the 2 day + 1 day structure, the chance to practice and Jane’s role modelling of the approach in everything she does. As a result of this programme, for now, I am noticing better connection through more focused listening. Also, and very personally, the course has reignited my interest in coaching and my desire to refresh and extend my organisational development practice. It has changed my plans for 2016. We will see what exciting outcomes stem from that change!”
“You truly embody the 10 Components in your work: the venue was great, the participants warm, encouraging and engaging and your facilitation of the programme was, as I said earlier, transformative. I enjoyed the programme immensely and my head is buzzing with new, and surprising thoughts–and I appreciate that very much.”
“I really enjoyed exploring the additional group applications, especially as I could see how to use and apply them in some of the work I do. The Transforming Meetings finale really pulled it altogether. I particularly liked learning in small groups.”
“I found this programme truly inspiring and profound and I learnt so much about how to listen, when to speak how to pace a conversation. I think everyone should learn how to listen like this. Paying attention without interruption is totally life changing. I can’t wait to do the next one. I would recommend to everyone I know, who has an interest in learning the art of listening.”
“This is a first-class course on group meetings facilitation. It is inclusive and respectful to each meeting attendant. It taps into everyone’s talents, intelligence and potential in a deep way.
It empowers confidence. It stimulates creativity. It enthuses the heart.”
“An opportunity to openly explore in a learning space designed to offer a chance to view change: in our thinking and listening, all delivered in a carefully managed, friendly and supportive group environment. This is a warm and engaging learning space with a lot of opportunity to take away the growth that really matters for humans to make a change. The learning components of this model reveal a more valuable method to engage in a human centred conversation in all contexts. You will carefully explore and take away communication tools to be employed in a thinking environment: to help yourself and others to greater freedom and choice based on deep and wise listening. What’s not to love?!”
“A powerful content for any coach wishing to upgrade their game and their impact as a coach. It takes the coaching out of coaching and brings the experience of being together with a client to is deepest essence. The assumption of and trust in the brilliance of the client is lived and modelled at its ultimate. Heartfelt gratitude to Jane.”
“The Time to Think Foundation program builds on the philosophy that the human mind thinks best in the presence of a question AND when uninterrupted. The same principles apply to a dialogue or a team meeting. The embodiment of the 10 components in Time to Think help generate peoples’ best thinking and can transform meetings into ideas powerhouses.”
“Jane, I LOVED the way that you created the time to think for us all and it was so easy to see the positive impact that this had on people; at a humanistic level and also from an outcomes level. I can learn so very much from you in terms of how you held time and were disciplined about this. I was genuinely staggered and awestruck by this and the positive impact it had. We got through so much over the two days.”
