Summary

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 business people 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 10 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.

Critic reviews

"As we make sense of change in the 21st century, a deep understanding of the Thinking Environment should be part of every leadership development programme. It intrinsically values the contribution and humanity of each person, and drives team effectiveness. Its power is evident in higher quality relationships, as well as in shorter, smarter meetings." (Rosemary Grant, Statutory Director, Johnson & Johnson Medical UK)
"When you change the way you think, you change everything. In my work and my life the Thinking Environment has made all the difference." (Scott Farnsworth, President, SunBridge Inc., USA)
