About the Time to Think Facilitators course

This course follows on from our Foundation course for those who want to share Time to Think principles with groups, or take its practice into their group facilitation. You’ll learn how to present the eight applications of the thinking environment and how to use activities and tools to effectively teach Time to Think in groups. Once complete, you will undertake the Practicum work, supervised by Sophie as a Time To Think Faculty member. Once successfully completed, you’ll be welcomed into the Time To Think Collegiate, qualified as a Time To Think Facilitator and be eligible to join Nancy Klines quarterly collegiate meetings in London. 

I had nearly 30 years of experience as a facilitator of international groups at all managerial levels. The course helped me to trust my instincts even more and to create an unhurried, respectful atmosphere even quicker and more purposefully than I was able to do in the past.
— Andrea Schüller
I have been an external facilitator for over 10 years having previously trained in traditional facilitation skills such as meta planning, brainstorming, energisers etc.  I found the course extremely insightful & practical, with the backdrop of the thinking environment theory, it gave me some great tools to take directly into any group facilitation and it also gave me the space to put these tools into practice in a safe learning environment. The course gave me the opportunity to really analyse my ‘honed’ facilitation skills and it gave me lots of practical ideas on how to handle future assignments. Some of the best things about the course were the thinking time it provided and the fact that I could practice how to deliver the concepts with my own authentic voice. I would highly recommend the course, I believe it has significantly stretched my facilitation skills and given me insight and practical steps on how to enable groups to think well together. Thank you Sophie, I always learn so much from you - I love your style & your subject expertise is invaluable!
