What others have said…
“This programme is an opportunity for you to learn from one of the best role models and teachers of the Thinking Environment®. You can expect your days to be rich with content, insights, discoveries, and participation, held together in a safe, encouraging and welcoming space. If you knew that this way of coaching your clients will give both of you a unique experience to become your best selves, what would you think?”
“A unique, empowering, robust experience which equipped us with the invaluable life skill of freeing ourselves from limiting assumptions and living nearer our true selves, and taught us how to accompany others in this lifechanging process in a safe, supportive and effective way. The possibilities unleashed by this approach to coaching and thinking are boundless!”
“Jane is a brilliant, caring, empowering host and trainer who lives the 10 components with grace. She clearly knows the process inside out and addresses each learning moment with flair and mastery. She goes out of her way to cater for all her trainees’ needs. I felt supported and nurtured. The course is very well structured, and I made a huge amount of progress over the days. The group was absolutely lovely and it was a treat to be able to share and talk around the issues that were presented for thinking. Seeing other people have the discipline to think at the edge of their awareness and persevere until the right nuance was found, and how that led to liberating solutions and opened up powerful opportunities, is giving me the courage to identify and value the nuances of my own thoughts and hold my truth as I approach various difficult situations and people.”
“Thank you, Jane, for creating such a memorable and enriching learning experience, and for your generous investment of time, input, and support in our exchanges in between training days.”
“Thank you Jane for a magical 6 days, it’s been a fabulous journey of exploring, learning and sharing with a lovely group of people.”
“This is a perfect and evidenced-based practice that gave me the opportunity to equalise the rush I have felt at times as a coach, when ideas and multiple connections pop up in my head, and am eager to serve with the most helpful questions. Yet, the best help is to let someone finish their thoughts and provide them with the opportunity to amplify these thoughts. This fulfilling evidenced-based thinking experience manages that possible rush and transforms it into a productive, calm, intuitive supportive process. It yields fascinating results for both the thinker and for the thinking partner. Thank you!”
“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.”
“As I work in the Social Innovation ecosystem, I have looked for a course that aligns with my mission to provide experiences and a space for people to flourish as autonomous, powerful, creative and impactful people. I have found it in the Thinking Environment. Jane delivered a superb Time To Think Coaching Course. She provided a space full of grace, gave us her supportive presence and wisdom. A stunning and impactful experience.”
“It would take a long time to explain the actual process but in short, I would say that this course taught me to truly listen, improve my relationships, become a better person and live a happier, more liberated and insightful life. Of all the coach training I have done this one has been by far the most impactful. Jane is an amazing woman and teacher with so much wisdom, humility, and grace. It has been a true privilege to have her as a teacher all through my Time to Think training, through which I have become a far better coach, wife ,and mother. A better human being! Thank you Jane!”
