Such a powerful yet simple approach to meta-cognition.
De Bono lays out a suite of elegant thinking tools to aid decision making and helping to effectively harness group intellect.
I have now used various tool sets from this book in multiple deliberate settings.
The first was using the set of decision-making frameworks.
I worked with a group of met-cognition lovers, fans of mental models, and walked them through a problem that each of them was grappling with.
We did it as a blind exercise – I didn’t need to know the problem, but instead they kept that to themselves.
The process worked. Everyone in the group experienced resolving an issue to some degree.
