Six Thinking Hats, a thinking skills training course from Edward de Bono, teaches parallel thinking as an alternative to argument. Parallel thinking guides thought processes in one direction at a time so we can effectively analyze issues, generate new ideas, and make better decisions.
The Six Thinking Hats are metaphorical hats that you can “put on” or “take off” to indicate the type of thinking that you are using. When using Six Thinking Hats in a group, everyone wears the same hat at the same time (parallel thinking).
Six Thinking Hats helps put our opinions and egos aside so we can focus on a way forward, without argument.Six Thinking Hats training is fast-paced, practical, and interactive. Participants learn how to separate emotion from facts, the positive from the negative and critical thinking from creative thinking.
