Why do we use Edward de Bono Hats?
The Hats teaches our learners how to seperate thinking into six clear functions and roles. Each thinking role is identified wit a coloured symbolic “thinking hat”. By mentally wearing and switching “hats”, you can easily focus or redirect thoughts or the conversation.
Six Thinking Hats is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps our staff and learners be more productive, focused and mindfully involved. A powerful tool set, which once learned can be applied immediately.
We us the Thinking Hats to accomplish the following:
- Separate out conflicting styles of thinking to improve effectiveness.
- Provide a language to invite people to switch thinking.
- Create an easy to follow thinking process.
- Encourage creativity.
- Support decision making.
- Boost focus.
