Product Description

Review

More Time To Think is a vital contribution to our empowerment in transcending what often seem like insurmountable challenges. --Isaac Matheta Swafo, Managing Director, ProCorp South Africa

As we make sense of change in the 21st century, a deep understanding of the Thinking Environment should be part of every leadership development programme. It intrinsically values the contribution and humanity of each person, and drives team effectiveness. Its power is evident in higher quality relationships, as well as in shorter, smarter meetings. Bravo! --Rosemary Grant, Statutory Director, Johnson & Johnson Medical UK

The Thinking Environment is a revolutionary and inspiring tool. --Martin Kalungu-Banda, Author of Like Madiba: Leadership Lessons From Nelson Mandela

Book Description

The follow-on to the bestselling Time to Think, explaining how to create a Thinking Environment for groups and for individuals. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Reading Nancy Kline's first book was a revelation. It led me to train with her and her remarkable Time to Think organisation. Reading More Time to Think has made me see just how deeply and consistently she lives the thinking environment she describes, as in this new book she challenges and develops every aspect of the process she has created over the last 30 years.

More Time to Think is written with clarity, offering us practical ways to think independently, to challenge deep-rooted assumptions about the world and ourselves, to use every moment of our thinking time constructively and dynamically. It is jargon-free, avoiding the popular temptation to trick out major concepts in academic dress. It is often funny. It is always deeply human and accessible.

Yes, David Cameron and Nick Clegg should read this: so should every world leader (other than the President of Zambia, who already knows about it); so should every manager, organiser, team player. Every banker and trader. Every parent, teacher and student. Everyone. The world has huge need of clear thinking, and this is it.

Format: Paperback
Coaching is based on a fundamental belief that every individual has the capacity and ability to know and do what is right and best for them as an individual. During my training and subsequent continuing professional development as a coach, I time after time come across coaches who think that some people 'need a coach who is more directive', as though some people are capable of thinking for themselves and others may not be. They should all read this book. It is for anyone who has ever doubted that every individual has within them the ability to, in Nancy's words "think with rigour, courage, imagination and grace", and any questions I had about the directive/non-directive debate have vanished since reading it. As leaders or coaches, we NEVER know better than an individual what they want or need. We might, suggests Nancy, encourage their thinking, for example by giving them more time, creating an environment which encourages them to think, helping them to think more insightfully by asking the appropriate incisive question, or showing that we have confidence in their ability to think for themselves. If we do, the results are amazing - I've put Nancy's advice into practice in my coaching and can vouch for it.

There are some books that are fundamental to the way I work, and this is one of them. The positive effect of using Nancy Kline's Thinking Environment(TM) as an approach to working with others is profound.

If you've sat through business meetings at which everyone is vying for their turn, and where the loudest hold sway and interruption is the norm, or listened with growing despair to the conflicting advice of well-meaning friends, you'll really appreciate the power of the Thinking Environment(TM).

Nancy Kline's aim is to improve radically the quality of our thinking, by creating an environment of deep attentiveness. Her book describes how, in a respectful thinking partnership, limiting assumptions can be challenged by the use of incisive questions. I've used her original book, Time to Think, since it first appeared.

In "More Time to Think", Nancy Kline expands her philosophy in the light of 10 years more profound thought since her first book appeared. The model has been refined, and is more exquisite. A whole new world can be created in the thinker's mind from the question "What do you want to think about and what are your thoughts?" It works, it really does.

This is a book that makes a profound business impact. This is not for the faint hearted!

It helps those you lead and work with to do their finest and freshest thinking. I have been very fortunate to have been trained by Nancy Kline and have applied her wise and highly practical philosophy of the Thinking Environment. Her book is highly congruent with the way she lives her life and humbly acts as a role model. It builds beautifully on the earlier excellent book "Time to Think". Both are written in an easy and compelling way.

The essence of her book is the clarity with which she illustrates her 10 components of getting the best out of those with whom you interact. These components guide you in creating a safe environment to help the person you are listening to (your thinking partner) in resolving their own challenging life and business issues.

I have read widely in the leadership development and coaching arena and this is one of the most profound books that I have read and immediately applied to developing others. In particular it is invaluable to helping top teams create trust and respect which allow real results to be delivered.

David Cameron and Nick Clegg this is to book for you!
