Six Thinking Hats

$7.00

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.
