We empower organizations by creating opportunities for people to hear and respect each other. When this is so, both work-flow and the experience of satisfaction in work improves. Demonstrably. This may seem a simplistic and obvious statement, but for the most part it does not happen in organisations. Our mission is to teach and demonstrate that thoughtful facilitation frees people to be both responsible and creative in their work environment. These are skills that can be learned and used to make meetings work and work well.
Due to the world-changing nature of our current circumstances, like many, we have moved our programmes online, and have discovered how well they are adapted to our new environment, but more importantly, how much more critical enhancing deep listening skills has become in a world where all the physical cues we are used to in personal interaction have been rearranged.

about the TIME TO THINK Facilitator COURSE on Zoom
Are you interested in becoming a Time To Think Facilitator? After you complete the Foundation Course, this is your next step.
The Facilitator Course (on Zoom) - comprised of 6 4-hour sessions - teaches you how to present professionally eight of the applications of a Thinking Environment you explored on the prerequisite Foundation Course. It is an added benefit if you have done the Time To Think Partnership Course, but not required.
Completing this course, you then would undertake the Practicum work, supervised by Maryse Barak a Time To Think Faculty member.
Successfully completing that work, and joining the Time To Think Collegiate, you would become qualified as a Time To Think Facilitator.
This programme is a pre-requisite for qualifying as a Consultant.

"Works of art come in many forms. Maryse Barak is one of them. Her expertise, her presence, her understanding of human intelligence, her rigour, her grace and her loving heart combine to produce for her clients a richly productive and deeply developmental experience. Every time."
We learn to understand how, and why, the quality of one person's attention impacts on the quality of another person's thinking, on their decisions and actions.
This way of being is regarded by many as an essential coaching and mentoring skill, ideal for all those managing and leading people: the training and application of it is also a valuable personal development experience. This course equips you with skills for many contexts: 1-to-1 coaching and mentoring, day-to-day discussions, team leadership and management, client relationships, as well as your personal life. Essentially it improves communication and understanding on all levels with all people at all times.
Who is the course for?
Coaches, mentors, professional advisers, executives, managers, HR and OD professionals, health and other consultants; all those who want to become skilled in creating the ideal conditions in which thinking will flourish, and/or to deepen existing skills.
Note: This programme is the pre-requisite for the Time to Think Coaching accreditation course.
Space is limited to 6 participants -
