"Thinking Environment" facilitated by Jo Shuttleworth
‘Everything we do depends first on the quality of the thinking we do first’ Nancy Kline (2009), Time To Think: Listening to Ignite the Human Mind
Within coaching, the Thinking Environment® (TE) approach assumes that the quality of the clients thinking is dependent on how the client is treated during their session and that depends on the quality of our attention and the other 9 components of the TE.
Controversially, is this approach actually ‘coaching’ by classical definitions? Cleverly simple, deceptively complex, this system relies more on the thinking of the client more than the traditional skills of the coach. Is it possible to mobilise a client to action by asking only one question?
So let’s think differently about coaching. Let’s think about thinking. Curious?
