Six Thinking Hats Workshop

Leadership

Six-Thinking-Hats-Workshop.png

Six Thinking Hats® is a proven thinking tool for group discussions and individual thinking. It provides a framework to help people think clearly and thoroughly by directing their thinking attention in one direction at a time. The Six Thinking Hats technique stimulates clear, objective, creative thinking, and reduces the “trenching” of endless discussions and arguing. Create shorter, results-oriented meetings where people want to participate. Effectively analyze issues, generate ideas, and make better decisions.

The use of hats is a simple mental metaphor. Hats are easy to put on and to take off. Each hat is a different color that signals a unique thinking technique. In a group setting each member thinks using the same thinking hat, at the same time, on the same topic — a process called “parallel thinking.”

In this session, we will identify the purpose of each hat color and apply the tool to a variety of businesses and personal scenarios.
