H for Hats
Hats is what I thought of sharing with all.
Not the regular hats but thinking hats.
Six Thinking Hats is a strategy devised by Edward de Bono ,regarded the leading authority in the world in the field of creative thinking,to extend your way of thinking about a topic by wearing a range of different ’thinking‘ hats.The different colours help you to visualise six separate modes of thinking .
The six hats are:
1.White Hat ( the facts and figures ) thinking focuses on the information available and needed.
2.Red Hat ( the emotional view ) thinking looks at a topic from the point of view of emotions, feelings and hunches.
3.Black Hat (the “devil’s advocate” ) thinking examines the difficulties and problems associated with a topic.
4.Yellow Hat ( the positive side ) thinking focuses on benefits and values.
5.Green Hat ( the creative side ) thinking requires imaginative, creative and lateral thinking about a topic.
6.Blue Hat ( the organizing view ) thinking focuses on reflection, metacognition (thinking about the thinking that is required), and the need to manage the thinking process.
Wear these colorful hats to help you in situations in which brainstorming, problem solving, creative and lateral thinking are required and wear these hats from REFLECTIONS to express yourself in person.
