People of all ages and from every walk of life have used Edward de Bono’s “Thinking Hats method.” It provides a convenient, easy way to cut through confusion and process information clearly. De Bono’s “Six Hats” are visualization tools that help sidestep the ego, providing a path to nonjudgmental decision making. Each chapter in his book includes a detailed description of a different hat color and its applications. De Bono offers plenty of example dialogues to suggest how to use the hats in conversation. getAbstract recommends his approach to managers, teachers, group leaders or anyone involved in group decision making.
