Six Hats Thinking Styles, a thinking skills training course which teaches parallel thinking as an alternative to argument. Parallel thinking guides thought processes in one direction at a time, so we can effectively analyze issues, generate new ideas, and make better decisions. Six Thinking Hats helps put our opinions and egos aside so we can focus on a way forward, without argument. Participants learn how to separate emotion from facts, the positive from the negative and critical thinking from creative thinking.
