Training Courses

Below is a summary of the de Bono Thinking Systems training courses. These systems have been instrumental in aiding organizational innovation worldwide.

Six Thinking Hats

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.   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. Six Thinking Hats participants leave with tools they can apply immediately.

Lateral Thinking
