Learning to think – thinking skills training progams

While thinking skills are generally termed soft skills, we believe they are vital skills and should be treated as such. These are skills required to function efficiently in a dynamic world and you will find our structure and content of programs in this space reflective of this belief. Along with a focus on creative and critical thinking skills, we also offer programs establishing a foundational mindfulness practice that helps individuals make sense of all the chaos around them while remaining present to what is happening at the moment and respond appropriately. Our mindfulness training programs endeavor to build on this awareness with practices that help reduce stress, feel safer, calmer, and wiser, and build closer relationships at home and work. You will find that our list of programs in this space is crafted by bringing together a structured and creative approach to help boost divergent thinking while also helping people reconnect with their creative selves.
