Description

The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. The leaders, professionals, parents and teachers who understand this are at the top of their fields and inspire some of the finest independent thinking in their environments.

In More Time to Think, Nancy Kline shares ten effective ways to help people think for themselves with rigour, imagination, courage and grace. From learning that the mind works best in the presence of a question (so never be afraid to risk being wrong) and that a key factor in the quality of a person's thinking is how they are treated by the people with them while they are thinking, to the importance of appreciation and of facing what you have been denying, Nancy Kline shows how to create a successful Thinking Environment, whether for two people or a larger group.

Review quote

A beautiful book. Every page is a gift. Its compassionate wisdom illuminates your life and invites you to greater intimacy with your best and truest self. Nancy Kline writes to her god-daughters, and in so doing, offers timeless wisdom for us all. -- Praise for Living with Time to Think * Mark Williams, bestselling co-author of Mindfulness * This process is not just a set of techniques. It's a way of being in the world. -- Shirley Edwards, Xerox Corporation 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 Do not be fooled by the simplicity of this process. It will unleash the power of your whole organisation. -- British Telecom
