Go MAD Thinking, the organisation behind Think Leicestershire, has a new on-line interactive thinking platform - iCheev - which helps individuals and groups achieve better results faster through accelerated thinking.
The platform comes in two guises - a free version, available to anyone and a professional version available for a fee.
As a thank you to our amazing community and to enable Think Leicestershire to achieve even more for the city and county, we are giving a professional version of iCheev to all of our current and future Community Coaches and Difference Makers. More »
Your free iCheev will be coming to you in November and future editions of E-News will include some top tips to help you get the most from the platform. There is nothing you need to do but if you would like a preview of iCheev then take a look at: www.icheev.com » Less
From November onwards Think Leicestershire is offering a free support package to anyone in the city or the county who is passionate about changing something for the better and committed to taking action - these people are the Difference Makers!
The difference between a Community Coach and a Difference Maker is simple:
- Community Coaches are trained to help others with their thinking;
- Difference Makers are supported to use the Thinking Framework to tackle an issue they are inspired by.
The role of Difference Maker has been introduced to Think Leicestershire for 3 reasons :
1. To give Community Coaches the chance to work with passionate people who really want to make a change. More »
2. To expand the reach of the project to those that don't want to be a coach.
3. To provide Community Coaches opportunities to use their new coaching skills.
We at Think Leicestershire feel this is the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle that unites Coaches with people who want to make a difference in their lives. From November onwards Difference Makers will be able to use the Think Leicestershire website to ask for support and Coaches will be able to volunteer their time to get involved.
So if you know of someone who is a potential Difference Maker, all they have to do is to register at:
