  • Six Thinking Hats


    The Six Thinking Hats IQ Matrix explores how to think more effectively, critically, and creatively about your problems, life, and circumstances using the Six Thinking Hat’s approach to problem-solving. This method for problem-solving was originally created by Edward de Bono and is now available in a mind map format along with an accompanying 30 page eBook.

    Each branch of this mind map explores one of the Six Thinking Hats. Each hat approaches the problem from a slightly different perspective. The blue hat is the managerial hat that controls the problem-solving process. The white hat takes a rational approach. The red hat takes an intuitive approach. The black hat takes a pessimistic approach. The yellow hat takes a realistic approach with a positive spin. And the green hat approaches the problem from a creative perspective. In combination, these hats can help you to effectively work through any problem you might face.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who would like to learn how to think more objectively, rationally, and creatively about their problems.
    • Anyone who would like a more structured approach to problem-solving for individual or group purposes.
    • Anyone who wants to learn more about how to use the Six Thinking Hats to solve life’s problems.

  • Starting Over Again


    The Starting Over Again IQ Matrix explores what it takes to begin again and start over after a failure, mistake, rejection or any kind of setback that derails your efforts. Starting over is of course never easy. To start over means letting go of certain things that could potentially hold you back and opening yourself up to a different set of possibilities and opportunities for growth and development. However, in order to recognize these things in the first place we must be willing to shift how we think about our life and circumstances. Without this shift taking place from within, it will be difficult to move yourself forward in a new direction and start over again.

    • Anyone who wants to open the doors to new possibilities and opportunities.
