O2E CEO Warren Buffett spends 80% of his time thinking. Tim Armstrong, CEO of AOL, makes his executives devote 10% of their day, or 4 hours per week, to thinking. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are both well known for taking week-long ‘thinking’ retreats.
In More Time to Think, Nancy Kline demonstrates that the quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. The leaders, entrepreneurs and businesspeople who understand this are at the top of their fields and inspire some of the most successful and innovative practices and businesses in the world.
In this audiobook, Nancy Kline shares ten effective ways to help people think innovatively, and with rigour. From learning that the mind works best in the presence of a question, and that a key factor in the quality of a person's thinking is how they are treated by the people around them, to the importance of appreciation, Nancy Kline shows how to create a successful Thinking Environment, whether for two people, a start-up, or a larger organisation.
Nancy created and pioneered the development of The Thinking Environment and is Founder and President of Time To Think, the world-renowned leadership development programme. Her first book, Time to Think: Listening to Ignite the Human Mind, introduces the Thinking Environment and the results of its use in leadership, organisational change, coaching, team development and business building.
