Thinking Collaborative provides individuals and organizations strategies, skills and concepts to establish and sustain structures for thinking and collaborating that result in increased performance and resourcefulness.

Our work is grounded in two seminars:
Adaptive Schools Seminars (formerly The Center for Adaptive Schools) and
Cognitive Coaching Seminars® (formerly The Center for Cognitive Coaching).
