"We may have a perfectly adequate way of doing something, but that does not mean there cannot be a better way."
This book gives you a framework on you how to approach your own and your team’s thinking process. Using the six distinct areas allows you and others to address any problem in a more efficient way and to get to better answers faster.
1) Six Hats: Blue – Management, White – Information, Red – Emotions, Black – Caution, Yellow – Optimism, Green – Creativity
2) Start brainstorming sessions wearing the blue hat. This allows you to see the big picture and encourage others to do the same.
3) The red hat might be overlooked but it is important in order to allow everyone to express how they truly feel about a topic without being judged. That's how you will get to real insights.
READ IF: You seek to make teamwork and work with others in general more efficient and human.
