In the face of a new idea, we always instinctively judge "good" or "bad". Then, there are endless arguments between both sides, and no one can convince anyone. Similar conflicts are staged every day, whether in life or in the workplace!

"The public says the public is reasonable, the mother-in-law says the mother is reasonable, who is right?"

All kinds of meaningless arguments, wishful thinking and tangles in life and workplace cost us a lot of time and energy. How can we avoid these meaningless arguments and tangles? The six thinking hats provide us with a way of thinking holistically and comprehensively. Using De Bono's Six Thinking Hats, we can move the team discussion from opposite to parallel thinking.
