Six thinking hats is a simple, yet effective parallel thinking process to help teams be more productive, focused and involved.
This work shop is based around the principle that the human brain thinks in six distinctive ways and each way can develop tactics to for thinking about a particular issue.
The work shop is interactive and includes presentations, analysis, group discussions and experiential team building exercises.
• Problem solving and generating creative ideas and solutions
• Have shorter and more productive meetings
• Think clearly and objectively
• Cross-cultural communication

Six Thinking Hats work shop is based around the book by Edward de Bono which describes a tool for group discussion and individual thinking involving six colored hats.
The blue hat describes process, the white hat facts, the red hat emotions, the black hat discernment, the yellow hat optimistic response and the green hat creativity.
This team building activity is a combination of seminar and activity. For best results, the seminar should be presented inside in a hotel conference room. We use breakout rooms, other conference rooms and practically any outside area to conduct the games and activities.
Discussion and debate is the main part of the activity. Following a presentation section, participants are given experiential tasks to complete in teams, after which group discussion is led by the facilitator.
The ideal length for the seminar is anywhere between a half day and three days. In half a day the basics of the model can be explained.
To get the most out of a seminar, a team survey should be completed before the event, and these results are then used in the seminar.
In addition, each topic is best explained with the use of an activity to follow, each one of which may take between 10 minutes and 1 hour depending on the activity.
