Challenges and hopes for now and beyond Covid-19: An online conversation guided by De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats
Wednesday 20 May, 12h30-14h30 CET, online on Zoom
We are going through special times coping with the circumstances of the lockdown. Working from home and being restricted in our movement influences our daily life in countless ways. Many of us find ourselves in many online meetings. They are not always pleasant. oStill, when we see the glass half full there are positive sides (solidarity, innovative and creative power of people, less pollution) and we can hope that something good comes out of this that will last beyond Covid-19, for us, our community, and the planet.
Are you wondering what kind of future this current experience will bring us?
Would you be interested to learn an approach that supports a group in thinking creatively together and in uncovering insights and options?
Would you be happy to join a different type of online conversation and exchange and digest with others your reflections, questions and hopes?
Imagine a conversation that is structured and guided in a way that helps everyone to contribute constructively, expand their patterns of thinking beyond normal habits, and explore directions beyond the obvious. De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats, a simple parallel thinking process, can enable such a conversation.
Our invitation to you:
We invite you to embark with us on a 2-hour inquiry, using the Six Thinking Hats approach. We would love to explore the following question with you:
“How can we use our reflection and learning from the Covid pandemic to challenge and change the way we live and behave towards ourselves, our communities and our planet?”
Join our online conversation about our challenges and hopes for now and beyond Covid-19 guided by De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats.
What we offer you
An introduction into De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats.
A facilitated online conversation about our challenges and hopes for now and beyond Covid-19 guided by De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats.
Reflection together on what happened in the conversation, how this approach made it different and useful, and how we could use the Six Hats in our work and life.
What you will gain from this workshop
Energy, inspiration and insights.
Experience of a powerful approach on how a group can think together constructively and uncover new insights and perspectives.
New connections or deepened relationships with people who joined the conversation.
Your hosts for this 2-hour workshop
We, Nadia and Sarah, are two passionate explorers and “travel guides”. Nadia, a facilitator and method coach, loves embarking on joint learning journeys. She loves creative challenges and feels energized by bringing conversation and collaboration to life. Sarah, a mountain leader and facilitator, brings groups to the mountains to share nature and her favourite parts of Switzerland. While her favourite workshop space is outdoors, she is enjoying the current opportunities for online connection and inspiration.
We both work in a networked way; putting our heads together and combining our talents gives us energy and satisfaction. The idea of working together with De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats started in a retreat in and with nature. We never imagined — until now — that we would do it online.
