This method will allow us to explore all perspectives to our challenge by wearing 6 different shoes one at a time to force us to move outside of our habitual thinking style. It's useful to have a lot of different point of view, avoid adversarial thinking and make better decisions.
This workshops is inspired by the work of Edward de Bono: the Six Thinking Hats

How are we doing?
What is the subject? What are we thinking about? What is the goal? Can look at the big picture.

Why it will work?
