Six Thinking Hats


Replace one-dimensional thinking with SIX-DIMENSIONAL THINKING

Much of our thinking is done in a confused way. We often try to do too much at once. Emotions, information, logic, hope and creativity are all mixed in. It's like juggling too many balls. As a result we begin to limit our thinking. We start to use only one type of thinking for every situation, usually critical or negative thinking. Similarly, critical thinking is a powerful tool but if you are trying to create a new idea, it can just get in the way.

The Six Thinking Hats® system provides a practical framework to overcome these challenges. It's a simple, easy to use method that can dramatically change the way you think. And the way your organization operates.

Dr. Edward de Bono's Training Course is fast paced, practical and interactive. The measurable results include shorter meetings, thorough decisions, better communication and easier problem resolution. Individuals and teams will learn to separate thinking into six categories for analyzing issues and generating new ideas.

  • Replace one dimensional thinking with six dimensional thinking (from emotion to facts, positive to negative, critical to creative)
  • Make your thinking more deliberate and generate more ideas
  • Identify alternatives, stimulate innovation and solve problems faster
  • Improve Team Work and lead better meetings
Anyone who wants to think clearly, objectively, and creatively will benefit from Six Thinking Hats training.
