Description


Six Thinking Hats are six distinct modes of thinking teams can learn to increase the quality, quantity and speed of collaborative and team decision-making. This one-day training program is designed for leaders of teams, those participating in teams or anyone wanting to improve the quality of their own thinking.

More about the Six Hats

Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats has helped individuals and organisations throughout the world become more effective, innovative thinkers.

Six Thinking Hats is a flexible and easy-to-use thinking process that leads to amazing results with innovative thinking, improved communication, and reduced decision-making time.

In traditional thinking we constantly find ourselves in conflict. Each side seeks to criticise the other point of view. The Six Thinking Hats method encourages Parallel Thinking, where everyone explores all sides of an issue at the same time.

In parallel thinking, confrontation is replaced by a cooperative exploration of the subject. It encourages the sharing of information, reduces argument, and allows talkers to think and thinkers to talk.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand why we need to improve the quality of our thinking in this whole new world of disruption.

  • Understand why argument is inadequate and why very little new thinking arises during discussions.

  • Discover an effective process for structuring group discussions to expedite decision-making and gain buy-in.

  • Discover a process where there is no space for emotions or egos to contribute to poor decision making.

  • Avoid the easy but mediocre decisions organisations make by not fully exploring the subject and all the possibilities.

  • Increase the productivity and effectiveness of outcomes in a team.

  • Maximise and organise each person’s thoughts and ideas.

  • Get to the right solution quickly and with everyone understanding the vision.

  • Encourage thinking outside the square with lateral thinking tools such as random word, the concept triangle and quota brainstorming.

  • Turn disagreements into positive contributions.

  • Understand the importance of emotion (red hat) in change programs and how to use it wisely to gain buy-in.

  • Improve the quality of your own thinking.
