The Thinking Network Tools


At the Thinking Network, we have no one thing to sell. We do not have a range of products that we pull off the shelf to sell to our clients. 


Everything we do is unique and tailored to meet the needs of our clients. So much so, that we can then GUARANTEE to meet the outcomes agreed prior to starting an engagement.


We use the latest adult learning, leadership and creativity theories and methodologies all backed up by the following tools where appropriate: 

Neethling Brain Instruments Master Practitioner

The Neethling Brain Instruments, Thinking Preference Assessments, are a powerful suite of neuroscience-based psychological assessments. Based on modern insights from the fields of neuroscience, creativity, and psychology, the assessments help individuals, leaders, teams, and organisations to unlock their full potential.


The NBI framework provides insights into left hemisphere, right hemisphere, cognitive and effective types of thinking. Such insights can lead to enhancement in areas of emotional intelligence, self-awareness, creativity, leadership, team performance, communication, presentations, conflict resolution, relationship management and much more.

Productive Thinking

The Productive Thinking model is a six-step problem solving and opportunity finding methodology, that builds on over 50 years of research by the Creative Education Foundation (CEF), over 30 years of research by NASA, and almost 10 years of field testing.

Developed by creative theorist, Tim Hurson, it combines the situation analyses and ideation strengths of CEF's methodology with the success criteria and project mapping techniques of NASA's iDEF methodology. The framework encourages the separate use of creative and critical thinking skills at each stage of the problem-solving process. This means that users get a better understanding of the problems faced, and offer the opportunity for better ideas and powerful solutions.

“You need courage to be creative.  Just as soon as you have a new idea, you are a minority of one.  And being a minority of one is uncomfortable – it takes courage!”

Paul Torrance
