The way of thinking developed by Edward de Bono helps people to become more productive on a simple and effective way. Meetings become constructive, creative and more structured. People listen to each other and are open to different points of view. The Six Hats can be used individually but most power is gained when using the method in meetings and discussions. (We all know of meetings where the same person focuses on the same problem over and over again, without an option how to bend this into a constructive common solution.) In the course, you will learn how to separate thinking into 6 distinct 'thinking modes' and how to use this in your daily life. The concepts of the Thinking Hats will be explained, discussed and experienced in realistic cases. 

On the Six Hats thinking modes, a Full course (2 days) and a Short course (1 day) is available.

The full course will be a healthy combination of know how and application of the theory. Experiencing the 6 Thinking Hats by first hand and in a safe environment is an important key to success for using it in daily practice. For more information see the separate course description.


The short course will focus more on theory and less on applying it. 
After the short course, the participants are able to:
