Thinking Environment®


The Ten Components of a Thinking Environment®



What is a Thinking Environment®?

Time To Think has identified ten behaviours that generate the finest independent thinking and they are called the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment®. In the presence of these ten behaviours people think for themselves with rigour, imagination, courage and grace.

The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first.

The quality of our thinking depends on the way we treat each other while we are thinking.



What is Transforming Meetings™?

People in organisations spend more than two-thirds of their time in meetings. Leading productive meetings and ensuring the contribution of everyone has, therefore, become a serious responsibility for a leader.
Teams learn how to use the meeting structure of a Thinking Environment® to engage each person fully, to generate their finest thinking, to encourage respectful, robust discussion leading to decision making of exceptional quality.
The Application includes practice in a real time business meeting, achieving concrete business results.

Transforming Meetings™ applies the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment® through the building block applications to create a culture of a Thinking Environment® which allows people’s thinking and engagement to improve dramatically


What is the Transforming Meetings™ Assessment?

An online meeting diagnostic that graphically identifies strengths and weaknesses across each of the factors that drives successful meetings (Collaboration, Innovation, Delivery, Excellence and Mindfulness).  A post-intervention impact assessment is completed to measure the transfer of learning and impact across these factors.

The spider-graph represents the impact within one of our clients with a total average across the factors of 115% impact.
