Six Thinking Hats®
Imagine it. Your team has the skills and techniques they need to make the best decision. Fast. Smart. Efficient.
It's not impossible. In fact, it is simple. Once you know how. That's where Dr. Edward de Bono's Six Thinking Hats® come in.
This systematic method of thinking in a completely new and different way provides your team with the skills and tools that they can apply immediately! See results in days, not months.
It is a simple, effective technique that helps you become more productive. You and your team members can learn how to separate thinking into six distinct categories. Each category is identified with its own colored metaphorical "thinking hat". By mentally wearing and switching "hats", you can easily focus or redirect thoughts, the conversation or the meeting.
The difference between brilliant and mediocre teams isn't so much in their collective mental capacity, but in how well they can tap into their collective wisdom and how well they function together.
After your team learns the skills behind the Six Thinking Hats® system, they'll:
Hold critical meetings without emotions or egos making bad decisions
Avoid the easy but mediocre decions by knowing how to dig deeper
Increase productivity and even more important - be more effective
Make creative solutions the norm
Maximise and organise each person's thoughts and ideas
Get the right solution quickly and with a shared vision
The Six Thinking Hats (or modes)
The White Hat ... calls for information known or needed.
The Red Hat ... signifies feelings, hunches and intuition.
The Black Hat ... is the devil's advocate or why something may not work.
The Yellow Hat ... symobolizes optimism - and asks for benefits and feasibility.
The Green Hat ... focuses on creativity: the possibilities, alternatives and new ideas.
The Blue Hat ... is used to manage the thinking process.
Controversial and parallel thinking
