Part One: A Thinking Environment: Its Ten Components Part Two: Creating a Thinking Environment Part Three: The Thinking Society Part Four: A Thinking Future
Over the past 15 years Nancy Kline has identified 10 behaviours that form a system called a Thinking Environment, a model of human interaction that dramatically improves the way people think, and thus the way they work and live.
Nancy Kline is President of Time To Think, an international leadership development and coaching company. She is also a published author and public speaker. Nancy created and pioneered the development of the theory and process called The Thinking Environment(R). This model allows people to turn their teams, organisations and relationships into Thinking Environments in which people at every level can think for themselves, with rigour, imagination and courage. The process increases the quality of thinking in, and thus of concrete results from, all human interactions, both in pairs and in groups, and decreases the amount of time it takes to achieve them. Time To Think began in 1984 and grew out of Nancy's consulting and teaching work near Washington, DC, where she had served as a Founding Director of The Thornton Friends School for twelve years and as Director of The Leadership Institute for six years. She is a Fellow of Ashridge College, UK Nancy was born and raised in New Mexico and lives in England with her husband Christopher Spence.
