Six Thinking Hats - Parallel Thinking
In 1985 Dr Edward de Bono designed an alternative method of 'parallel thinking' which is now widely used in business and education. The Six Thinking Hats course will teach you how to separate thinking into six distinct categories; each identified by its own coloured metaphorical "thinking hat". By mentally wearing and switching "hats", you can easily focus or redirect thoughts, the conversation, or the meeting and break free from the traditional argument system.
Who should attend: Head teachers, teachers (pre-school, primary, secondary, further education, vocational, adult, special needs), teacher trainers, careers officers, educational guides, advisors and curriculum leaders.
