Living with Time to Think
By Nancy Kline
Nancy Kline's Time To Think process builds an independent thinking culture in organisations and relationships. Over many years Nancy has refined this highly acclaimed system called the Thinking Environment. It identifies 10 behaviours that dramatically improve the way people listen, think and interact with one another.In this new book Nancy takes her thinking into a more personal sphere. Through a series of letters to her three goddaughters she addresses the fundamental questions of how we can live well, find meaning in our lives, and be happy. Applying the Thinking Environment philosophy, she demonstrates how thinking for ourselves underpins successful in all dimensions of life. From the Amy Question: 'what do you know now, that you are going to find out in a year?, to the power of expressing a complex idea idea in one sentence, to the generative invitation: 'what do you think?', she offers deeply stimulating, inspiring ways to the way we think - and live.
