The Six Thinking Hats

Why do people rather go to a movie than to attend a meeting? Why do we hear again and again that meetings are a waste of time and that even managers prefer to do "real" work than attending a meeting?

The reason is as simple as compelling. Meetings are badly run throughout organizations, nationalities and cultures.

Either they are excruciatingly boring, hijacked by one or two people, dominated by the boss (who supposed to know it all) or a one way communication channel for giving instructions.

But they are rarely a breeding ground for innovative ideas, a safe haven where delicate and controversial issues are discussed or a place where people challenge each other's ideas and visions.

This can be changed with the six thinking hats concept?

The six thinking hats is a valuable application tool for intercultural teams and organizations with diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Not only does the Six thinking hats make meetings more interesting and efficient, it also takes into consideration peoples values and ensures that nobody is loosing out in the process of making your organization a better place to work.
