The Facilitator Practicum

Following the Facilitator Course, you will be supported by me to become qualified by Time To Think to present the eight Applications professionally. With 4 practicum supervision sessions to support you, you will complete the following Practicum Work:

Written essay on The Ten Components of a Thinking Environment. This explication should demonstrate your knowledge of the definitions and principles of each of The Ten Components. It should include stories from your experience to illustrate the positive impact of each Component on people’s ability to think for themselves.

Delivery of each Application twice. Through delivery of each of the eight Applications (without charge) to a group (4 people minimum) organised by you, you will deepen your understanding about presenting and facilitating this work.

Notes and Reflections. After delivery of each Application, your will record your learning as well as any questions that arose from your delivery.

Thinking Pairs Practice. This practice in both the Thinker and the Thinking Partner role, twice a week until you finish the Practicum, once a week thereafter to maintain your certification, will sustain development of your understanding and expertise.

What others have said…

Hazel Morely
Inside-Out Wellness Coach & Facilitator, Canada

“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?”

Programme Delegate, UK

“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!”

Programme Delegate, UK

“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.”

Hazel Morely
Inside-Out Wellness Coach & Facilitator, Canada

“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.”

Katie Light
Wellness Coach & Trainer, UK

“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.”

Servane Mouazan
Social Enterprise Consultant & Coach

“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!”

Florentina Nacu
Executive Assistant

“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.”

Servane Mouazan
Social Innovation Coach & Consultant

“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.”

Louise Sydbeck
Coach

“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!”

Jayne Merron
Heads HR Director, UK

“A life changing experience that I would recommend to anyone that wants to understand how ‘listening and thinking’ currently works in the world and how we can develop the way to give ourselves and others the gift of independent thinking. That being able to think in this way helps you to question assumptions and builds confidence in your ability to think. I encourage them to ‘feel’ what it’s like, as it is different from anything I have experienced before. That is a way of being in the world rather than just a work/coaching process or tool.”
