Learn how to generate creative solutions at a six hat facilitated workshop
Creativity and creative thinking is about finding a way to establish new perspectives and generate new ideas.
In business, and in life, we are often taught to solve problems and analyse solutions through vertical thinking, critical analysis, and argument or debate. We judge our way forward. Six Hat workshops provide a platform to help you design your way forward. They are structured to remove ego, and mitigate against adversarial or confrontational thinking; generating new ideas and perspectives based on accurate information and realistic circumstance.
The workshops are not industry-specific and are designed to meet your specific business needs. Prior to the workshop, we will work with you to identify a problem or initiative that requires a creative approach, we will also spend time with you to identify your company's vision and drivers, to help us guide to align the thought processes of the group with your business' strategic plans.
Walk away with new ideas, consensus and an action plan
The Six Hat method facilitates parallel thinking - meaning that everyone is looking in the same direction at the same time. Six Hat sessions organise group thinking; encouraging a creative, lateral, and speculative search for value and benefits through targeted control of emotion and debate.
The workshops enable participants to think about 'what can be' not just 'what is'.
Our sessions focus on positive and creative solutions but also provide an agile structure from which to examine information, intuition and obstacles.
Participants will walk away with a fresh perspective, as well as an action plan to make things happen right now. More importantly they will have the skills to apply methods learned to generate new ideas in the future.
Simple techniques to trigger lateral perspectives
According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. People are said to be more inclined or prefer one type of thinking. A person who is a left-brain thinker is more inclined to be more logical, analytical and objective, while a right-brain thinker is said to be more intuitive, lateral and creative.
Six hat workshops will teach participants some simple techniques to trigger right-brain thinking, to generate creative ideas - which may be valid in their own right, or used as stepping stones to other ideas.
We have a purpose built creative space from which we host our workshops, but if it suits you better, we can come and work with your team on-site.
