October 07, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
The Edward de Bono Foundation (UK) has announced its Q4 2007 open course dates, offering businesses, government and education organisations a unique opportunity to improve individual and group productivity through one-off workshops.

The sessions are based on the ground-breaking ‘thinking systems’ developed by Dr Edward de Bono, including Six Thinking Hats®, Lateral Thinking™, Simplicity, Direct Attention Thinking Tools (DATT)® and CoRT. Each course is run by Nigel Newman, one of only five de Bono Thinking Systems master trainers in the world. Working with Nigel, delegates will fundamentally re-evaluate their approach to creative thinking, and learn how to treat it as a skill which can be developed and mastered.

Business course dates (Manchester Business Park)

Six Thinking Hats- 8 November & 4 December

Lateral Thinking- 9 November & 5 December

“We’re delighted to launch our open courses, offering leaders and professionals the opportunity to spend a day with one of the world’s leading practionioners and trainers in de Bono Thinking Systems,” says Robert Rawlinson, CEO of the Edward de Bono Foundation.

“All businesses and public sector organisations are united in their aim to become more productive, yet many lack the insight into how to make improvements, particularly without major investment. Here, in just one day, delegates can learn the principals of ‘operacy’ – the thinking about ‘doing’. And as leaders in both the private and public sector will tell you, it’s the doing that counts.”
