The thinking environment ideas and practice are relevant to a wide range of settings, not only coaching , so it would be a very unusual person who didn’t derive on-going benefit. The practical aspects of course, the materials handed out, and the involvement of Sophie and the other participants give experience and guidance that you can’t get from reading Nancy Kline’s book. So I would thoroughly recommend this course. The course has re-emphasised the importance of listening, allowing the coachee to lead, and introduced new ways to encourage their independent thinking. I should say that Sophie is a top notch trainer/coach, who cares about the group attending as individuals and makes the days fun as well full of content, flexibly delivered.
