Don’t know how my Dad felt about it, but when I was young I loved it when we had to stop at a railroad crossing and watch the trains go by. One time while we were waiting, Dad asked me if I knew what the sign near the track said. I said no, so he told me it said: Stop, Look and Listen.
One of the great lessons I learned from Dr. Edward de Bono is that our thinking and that of our team can benefit from taking the time to Stop, Look and Listen. That’s the message of the video below.
I’ve been involved with The Six Thinking Hats for 25 years. It’s an amazing process, one that saves meeting time (a lot of meeting time), improves problem solving and opportunity search, and solidifies the members of a team.
Join me at The Idea Loft here in Kansas City on July 17th for The Six Thinking Hats Experience. It will be a day you and your team (like teams at Hallmark and Sprint) will long remember. If you’d like more information about this event, simply click on the Blue Hat.
