Improve decision making processes ...

Every day we have to take several decisions, in private or business life and definitely during the job seeking activities as well. Normally pretty subjective and based on our comfort zone, experiences and socialization. Seeing things with the eyes of your counterpart or walking some miles in the shoes of your customer, is not common practice for everybody.

A helpful tool to improve decision making can be the Six Thinking Hats developed by Edward De Bono



"Used with well-defined and explicit Return On Investment success in corporations worldwide, Six Thinking Hats is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps people be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. A powerful tool set, which once learned can be applied immediately!
You and your team members can learn how to separate thinking into six clear functions and roles. Each thinking role is identified with a colored symbolic "thinking hat." By mentally wearing and switching "hats," you can easily focus or redirect thoughts, the conversation, or the meeting."

My job interview with the headhunter company did go well today and my documents will be forwarded to the customer for final decision and selection. I think I am prepared OKAY for the assessment center tomorrow. I do not want to prepare too much, to stay authentic and give a real life experience.

There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted. Henri Matisse

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science. Albert Einstein
