Thinking Environment Foundation Course: Melbourne 2019

A two-day day learning journey into the application of the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment to group work

· Do you need a structured yet enlivening way to enable people to think afresh, while building relatedness?

· Are you striving for innovation, productivity and inclusion but lacking a process that reliably makes these concepts a reality rather than remaining values on a wall?

Who should attend?
Business and community leaders, consultants, facilitators, HR practitioners, and anyone whose job requires them to create group thinking spaces in which people can access their most innovative and courageous thinking and action.

You will learn to:
- Transform 1:1 and group interactions, including meetings, in simple yet profound ways
- Access your own and others’ innovative, freshest thinking to achieve optimal results
- Tap into the collective wisdom of a peer group
- Present in a way which unlocks exceptional new insights for your audience

The Foundation Course introduces you to the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment and their many applications. You will explore Thinking Pairs, Dialogue, Rounds, Open Discussion, Meetings, the Time To Think Council, Presentations and Facilitation. Any of these applications will help you turn groups and organizations into Thinking Environments.

This course is a prerequisite for the Facilitator Qualifying Course.

Thinking Partnership Course: Sydney 2019

A three-day programme (2+1 days) which provides the knowledge and skills to become a Thinking Partner

What is a Thinking Partner?

A Thinking Partner is someone who, through the quality of the attention they offer, helps to catalyse another’s thinking. This attention is generative in nature, and enables the Thinker to access their most creative, bold, independent and courageous thinking.

Who should attend?

  • Leaders who recognise that their primary objective is to facilitate leadership in those around them, and who wish to build Thinking Partnerships and the Thinking Environment approach into their lives and organisations

  • Anyone whose job requires them to listen and get the best out of others, including parents, teachers, medical practitioners, coaches, and counsellors

  • Anyone who is needing time to think about issues which matter profoundly to them

What you will learn

The Thinking Partnership Session is a step-by step-process for liberating the human mind to think for itself with unprecedented clarity, originality and rigour. It produces breakthrough independent thinking. This highly participatory course teaches this process in depth. You will participate both as Thinker - considering topics of your choice - and as Thinking Partner practising this elegant expertise. Along the way you will explore all Ten Components of a Thinking Environment.

The Thinking Environment’s contribution to the work of Coaching

The Thinking Environment is one of the finest ways in which coaches can hone their ability to provide generative attention: attention which catalyses the thinker’s thinking.
Given the commitment and promise of coaching to provide a place in which clients can access their own best solutions to the issues they bring to their coaching sessions, coaches who train themselves to be Thinking Partners can reliably manage the perennial pitfalls of transference and unconscious infantilisation that so often trip up the best-intentioned helping professionals.
The Thinking Partnership Programme therefore forms the basis of the Coaching Course and is a pre-requisite for becoming an accredited Time To Think Coach.

Gathering Men: Talking Tough with Dr Michael Kimmel

Premium breakfast workshop with Dr Michael Kimmel | Friday, 20 May 2016  | 7:45am to 10:30am

Dr Michael Kimmel is back to spread the message that gender equality is not a zero-sum game and may in fact be the best thing that has ever happened to men. Politically, we all know one truth: we cannot fully empower women and girls without involving men and boys.

Are you ready to gather the men we need to make this happen?

Michael, one of the world's leading experts in men and masculinities, promises to inspire and activate a new and necessary conversation about what it means to be a ‘good man’ in the workplace. 

Led by Michael, and working in small groups with our team of male facilitators, this workshop provides a rare opportunity for business leaders and champions of diversity to:

  • Gain direct access to Michael’s global perspective
  • Connect and learn with peers
  • Explore questions; what works, what doesn't, and how do we build on exisiting practices?
  • Challenge assumptions about masculinity in the 21st century
  • Shape the future of work and society
