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 decisions 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
