Who should attend a Six Thinking Hats training course?

Six Thinking Hats is designed for individuals and groups looking for effective thinking tools for better outcomes. Your Six Thinking Hats training will teach you how to use Dr. Edward de Bono’s Six Hats, using practical examples and activities.

Previous participants tell us they enjoyed the interactive, fun learning activities. They loved getting into the combinations of the Six Thinking Hats to explore how those combinations could be used, depending on the demands of the subject, topic, or focus statement. They also found the two sample Lateral Thinking tools they learnt in their Six Thinking Hats training very helpful for generating different and new ideas. Many previous participants tell us that without these tools, the new ideas they created would not exist.
