More Time to Think : A Way of Being in the World
Does everyone's independent, fresh thinking matter more now than ever? More Time To Think is a resounding "yes" to this question. In this graceful, sage, second book in the Time To Think series, Nancy Kline will take you into the heart of the Thinking Environment as it has unfolded over these ten years since the publication of Time To Think. It will touch you with stories, challenge you with theory, inspire you with results, stretch you with questions, excite you with practice. And it will move you with its eloquence and warmth. This book is both a good place to start and a superb place to continue your understanding of this important theory and process. Time To Think and More Time To Think walk hand in hand. If you long for leadership you trust, meetings you love, relationships you cherish, community you know can work for everyone, or the life you really want, More Time To Think can lead you there.

"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 "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 "The Thinking Environment gives me the best contact with myself - with what I really think and feel - that I have ever experienced." Monica Schuldt Consultant, Llarhet Ledarskop, Sweden "When you change the way you think, you change everything. In my work and my life the Thinking Environment has made all the difference." Scott Farnsworth President, SunBridge Inc - USA "The Thinking Environment manifests the elegant simplicity that is found on the far side of complexity."

About Nancy Kline
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, courage and grace. 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. Nancy and the other Time To Think Consultants and Coaches do Thinking Environment work in companies, universities, human resource organisations, Coaching organisations, legal networks, government agencies and voluntary organisations. Thinking Environment work is active in the UK, Ireland, the United States, Spain and South Africa. 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 Management College, UK. Nancy was born and raised in New Mexico and lives in England with her husband, Christopher Spence.
