Juanita has always created inclusive environments. That’s why the Thinking Environment feels like home to her. In the sessions she facilitates, she integrates, promotes and demonstrates the Thinking Environment’s components and processes. This creates safe spaces where participants are able to gain awareness, reflect, think collectively, practice as well as experiment, and so become enthused, encouraged and empowered to take the next steps in their development.« Back
