Have you ever sat in a meeting feeling like other people just don’t get the way you think or can’t see situations the way you see them? Have you witnessed people in meetings spending excessive amounts of time disagreeing over nothing more than a difference in perspectives? Meetings come in all shapes and sizes, with myriad objectives attached to the time and effort required to make meetings work. Despite the variety, one constant crosses all boundaries: The critical need for meeting participants to view a situation from varying perspectives, not just their preferred perspective, before making a decision, solving a problem, or identifying next steps. This workshop explores Six Thinking Hats as a method for looking at a situation under review from six important perspectives. This tool helps people look beyond "the obvious," consider different points of view, and participate in a more coordinated effort to make the most of their meetings.
