The Six Thinking Hats tool is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps people break away from habitual thinking styles towards a more productive, focused, and mindfully involved decision making process.
Participants will learn to figure out how to separate the thinking process into six clear roles. Each role is symbolized by a different colored "thinking hat". By rationally exchanging these imaginary "hats," one can easily redirect or refocus thoughts, conversation or the meeting.
