Course Overview

In your everyday life, when was the last time you gave yourself uninterrupted time to think and get to the bottom of issues that are affecting you?

This course is about learning to think at a deeper level than you ever have before. You’ll learn to transform the quality of your thinking by being part of a Thinking Environment with your Thinking Partner. Your Thinking Partner will encourage you to think well by giving you their full attention and having genuine interest in where you’ll go next with your thinking.

“Thinking Partnership training has been transformative. Equipping me and my teams with skills we didn’t know we needed to unlock our cognitive potential and approach challenges with newfound clarity. The program’s emphasis on deep, reflective thinking not only enhanced problem-solving and significantly elevated overall decision-making skills but provided the added bonus of a tangible uptick in productivity! Time certainly well spent!”

Charnelle Bruton – Client Services Delivery Manager

“Everybody is busy, especially leaders. This training taught me the practices and discipline to meet with a trusted peer (usually for an hour or less) and think through my most important topics. This time is incredibly efficient and often the most valuable hour of my week!”

Duncan Cameron – Delivery coach
