Working in a Thinking Environment
Renewing the way you lead, plan, problem solve and innovate
19th November 2014
We are delighted to welcome this month's speaker:
The quality of decisions and actions that groups take depends on the thinking they do first. Everything we do – meeting, planning, problem solving, innovating – depends on the quality of thinking we do first.
What is this event about?
Fiona is an exceptional coach and will help us to understand the fundamentals of The Thinking Environment and show us how to become better thinkers. Find out how to create the time and space to think and start to practice the behaviours which will help you – indeed everyone – to think freely and at their best. This will be a fun, engaging and interactive session so be prepared to get involved!
ConsciousLab's aim is to raise consciousness in business - one of the ways to do that is to cultivate a purified understanding of oneself and one's surroundings. The Thinking Environment framework is a useful tool to develop this greater clarity and understanding.
