About The Event


Inspired by Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats method, Jim Gilmore has created a unique and useful tool to help improve our observational skills. His “Six Looking Glasses” provide a set of skills to master in order to enhance the way we look at the world around us. These include the ability to:

  • Survey and scan to see the big picture
  • Compare and contrast to overcome personal bias
  • Spot significance in any scene
  • Scrutinize numerous details
  • Uncover potential opportunities
  • See what’s in the mind’s eye

This workshop is designed to improve one’s observation skills and to supercharge the “visual intelligence” brought to any ideation or implementation endeavor. Attendees will walk away with Gilmore's LOOK: A Practical Guide for Improving Your Observational Skills book as a means to continue their growth and skills development.

The Six Looking Glasses method offers many practical applications: It can help any executive, manager, or designer more richly observe customer behavior, philanthropists and policy makers more keenly identify human needs, and anyone else interested in innovative thinking to first ground their ideation in practical observation.
