de Bono Consulting Training Announcement

Des Moines Trainer to Deliver Six Thinking Hats Training in Tampa Next Month

JOHNSTON, IA (12/18/2007) — Barbara Stennes, CEO and Founder of de Bono Consulting in Des Moines, Iowa, just announced two Six Thinking Hats training events in Tampa, FL.

Ms. Stennes helps organizations transform their thinking using Dr. Edward de Bono’s critical and creative thinking techniques, including the most well-known de Bono Thinking System, Six Thinking Hats.

Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats is a thinking management tool that teaches parallel thinking as an alternative to argument. Parallel thinking guides thought processes in one direction at a time so individuals and teams can effectively analyze issues, generate new ideas, and make decisions.

The Six Thinking Hats method helps put opinions aside in order to focus on a way forward, without argument.

The Six Thinking Hats Training Course is fast-paced, practical, and interactive.

Participants in the Six Thinking Hats one-day training session on January 28 in Tampa, FL will learn how to separate emotion from facts, the positive from the negative, and critical thinking from creative thinking.

Trainers who wish to teach Six Thinking Hats to others will stay in Tampa for three additional days to complete the required 4-day Six Thinking Hats Train-the-Trainer Certification.

January 28, 2008 in Tampa, FL

Six Thinking Hats Certification For Trainers:

“Six Thinking Hats gives employees critical and creative thinking tools they can use to ensure their survival in a competitive world,” says Stennes.
