This event is for coaches and mentors who want to develop their practice.
What is it about?
The aim of the event is to consider the question “How do we develop independent thinking to enhance performance?” Participants are introduced to the ten components of a Thinking Environment and consider the value they can bring to a variety of situations. Opportunities will be offered for participants to experience the creation of a quality thinking space with their peers.
