People and organisations are seeking improvement and quality across many areas except that which is the most important – the quality of the way we think.
If we improve the quality of our thinking the quality of the actions that follow correspondingly improve.
The Six Thinking Hats are designed to dramatically improve the way we think. The methods are used to look at issues from multiple perspectives and help us to move beyond our habitual thinking styles to achieve a more rounded and thorough view of a given situation.
In this full day session participants will develop:
- a sound understanding of multiple thinking styles,
- the ability to design and facilitate effective, outcome oriented meetings,
- the ability to generate new ideas using lateral thinking methods,
- the ability to design and lay out a thinking process, and
- become a more thorough and objective thinker.
The session will be held at Melbourne’s premier training venue and all participants will be provided with an optional work-based assessment with which to immediately start to apply the methods back in the workplace. Successful completion of this assessment provides the “Blue Hat Facilitator” Pin. Email & telephone coaching will be provided to assist with this at no additional cost.

I particularly liked the balance of theory, case studies and group exercises and the supplementary notes. I also appreciated the extra info. on complexity and group processes.” (Six Thinking Hats trainee Dec 2010)
