Katie Driver created the Thinking Alliance because she firmly believes that better thinking and better action go hand in hand to create better working lives. If we can think with clarity, calmness and courage, we can develop the sense of purpose and direction which drives focus and decision-making. And if we can act on the basis of our strengths and use our time well, we can create more fulfilling, enjoyable and productive lives.
Thinking Alliance engagements are led by Katie, bringing in Associates where appropriate.
