“I cannot recommend de Bono Consulting’s Six Thinking Hats and Lateral Training enough. I used the tools and techniques learned immediately during a strategic ideation workshop I facilitated with my top client – a large multi-national company. They absolutely loved the results. The participants gave the Six Thinking Hats method a 10 out of 10 on their post-workshop evaluations.”

“Thank you for your wonderful facilitation of the Six Thinking Hats for the Iowa Quality Leaders Quarterly. Even though it was my second time through the course, I still came away with new ideas on how to use the tools! I have been using the hat method before and after meetings with amazing results. This process helps me to take a 360 degree look at issues while remaining as neutral as humanly possible.”

“After reflecting on the revised Cargill Corporate Orientation Program that was implemented last year, I realized one of the valuable improvements we made to the program was the addition of the Six Thinking Hats course as one of our skill-building workshops. I am impressed with your facilitation style and effectiveness. Your in-depth knowledge of the subject matter allows for you to be creative and adjust to the needs of the group. You answer questions clearly and concisely, and you facilitate interaction and participation The value you bring to me as the course designer/manager is your flexibility and willingness to adapt to the needs of my organization. THANK YOU!
