Meetings are a crucial part of all our lives, but too often they go nowhere and waste valuable time. In Six Thinking Hats, Edward de Bono shows how meetings can be transformed to produce quick, decisive results every time. The Six Hats method is a devastatingly simple technique based on the brain's different modes of thinking. The intelligence, experience and information of everyone is harnessed to reach the right conclusions quickly. These principles have been adopted by businesses and governments around the world, ending conflict and confusion in favour of harmony and productivity. The Six Hats strategy will fundamentally change the way you work and interact.
