Six Hats of Thinking in the Workplace
Instructor: Jessica Ollenburg, CMC, CPCM

The way we work through challenges in life and work comes instinctively when we need to solve problems, but what if took a step back and used a different hat of thinking? The outcomes could be significantly different and our way of solving issues could be restructured with optimal results - especially in the professional world. 

Come to this workshop and learn about the six hats of thinking and their diverse benefits for anyone who is looking to approach solutions and work with skill and agility. Learn which hat you wear instinctively and understand the other methods of thinking and how they suit your personality, career and work style. 

The key take aways will include: 

  • Understanding How Diverse Thinking Completes the Puzzle
  • An Explanation of DeBono's Six Hats of Thinking
  • Learning How to Build Solution Teams via Complementary vs. Assimilation Approach
  • How to Be an Optimal Problem Solver
  • Live Case Study Exploration
