ELT Name16
Thinking Environment


The first two days are aimed at participants experiencing and practicing the Thinking Partnership. People have described the Thinking Partnership as ‘life changing.’ The six part Thinking Partnership process is a reliable way for people to access and clarify their thoughts and feelings; their goals, wishes and plans.

During these two days participants will learn the impact of limiting assumptions; they will learn how to identify a limiting assumption and how to replace it with something liberating that enables them to make progress in the direction of their choice. Participants will relate this experience to removing blocks for individuals, teams, families and organisations.

Day three is aimed at; working together, achieving win/win with partners, clients and teams. We will also look at an effective ways to run meetings and handle disagreements. Participants will reflect on how  they have applied the Thinking Partnership and share views of how they might use it in their work and life.
