Training in de Bono’s “Six Thinking Hats” – June 21

During this one-day short course, learn how to separate thinking into six modes and become a more objective, thorough thinker.

Unlock the power of parallel thinking. Explore subjects more fully, argue less, be constructive, creative and reduce meeting
time. The Six Thinking Hats® is a powerful meeting and communication tool; a creativity stimulant and a reality check that fosters collaboration and productive outcomes.

Attend this course if you need to:

  • Effectively lead teams and meetings.
  • Maximise input and ideas & improve results.
  • Defuse emotional topics and balance thinking objectively.
  • Speed up thinking, be more productive and save time.
  • Build clear problem definitions

Replace one-dimensional thinking with six-dimensional thinking. Much of our thinking is done in a disorganised, inefficient way. We often try to do too much at once. Emotions, information, logic, hope, risk and creativity are all mixed up together.    It is like juggling too many balls. As a result we begin to limit our thinking and make poor decisions.

Often, we tend to use only one type of thinking at any given moment. It is like a golfer using only one club – a driver
may be perfect for teeing off, but is clumsy on the putting green. One type of thinking is no longer adequate to cope with today’s rapidly changing world. Judgement and argument can no longer solve problems or move us forward. We need to switch our thinking from one-dimension to sixdimensions using Parallel Thinking™.

The Six Thinking Hats® is a process that enables Parallel Thinking™. It allows for collaborative, focused and directed thinking. It allows us to explore six different avenues of thought to build insight, creative ideas and solutions. The process
is a powerful tool to help change the way we think. It promotes productive interaction and creative thinking — vital ingredients for any meeting, any discussion and any decision.
