THINKING ENVIRONMENT FOUNDATION COURSE

Interested in groups and the Thinking Environment?

The Foundation Course is a two-day programme allowing for maximum practice, thinking time and appreciation. You will be introduced to the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment™ and their eight group applications.

Together with participants we will explore Thinking Pairs, Dialogue, Rounds, Open Discussion, Meetings, the Council and Facilitation. Any of these applications will help you turn groups and organisations into Thinking Environments.                   

You will also see one Thinking Partnership demonstration in order to consider its importance for leaders in creating Thinking Environment cultures.

VITAL SPACE IN SCOTLAND - Transforming Meetings Workshops

A series of 1 day workshops in Edinburgh, April/May 2019

Why Come? 

Everything we do depends on the quality of thinking we do first. 

Getting the best from people means getting their best thinking - the quality of decisions and actions groups take depends on the thinking they do together first. And getting the best thinking from everyone depends on how we are treated - and that depends on the culture we create and how we behave. 

Aims: 

to help managers and leaders, indeed everyone, who wants the best possible results from meetings of all kinds. 

Who should attend? 

Leaders, managers and everyone whose work outcomes depend on convening, chairing, or facilitating all kinds of group gatherings, from very formal board meetings to quick catch ups and awaydays. 

I can report that today I have successfully used the language of the Thinking Environment 10 Components in ‘contracting’ how we would work in the workshop on Action Learning I was facilitating. I also used opening and closing rounds exactly as we practiced them and facilitated a Time To Think Council as an example of a ‘different’ way of running an Action Learning set. It felt a bit clunky (not least because we’d not had the benefit of 2 days of work in a TE to understand and practice the 10 Components ) BUT the feedback was awesome - they really liked it! So a great success!
