In 1996, Dr. James Schreier became one of only nine individuals selected to be personally trained by Dr. Edward de Bono as an Accredited de Bono Facilitator. With previous certifications earned in Six Thinking Hats, Lateral Thinking, and Direct Attention Thinking Tools, Dr. Schreier spent four days with Dr. de Bono directing presentations and practice sessions on how to use his thinking tools in a facilitative process.
- Improve meeting effectiveness with a Six Thinking Hats process.
- Hold a “creative retreat” to identify new products and/or services — or ways of reaching customers.
- Dramatically improve the quality and effectiveness of a strategic planning retreat.
Sample Facilitation Projects
Creative Retreat: Working with representatives from a fund-raising organization and a vendor of fund raising products and services, we facilitated a two-day creative retreat to examine new strategies and tactics for direct mail campaigns and donor services.
School – Faculty Conflict: Hired by a Teacher’s Union in cooperation with the Community School Board, we facilitated a series of exploratory meetings with teachers, parents, students, and administrators to identify and resolve a conflict that had grown beyond traditional grievance processes.
Strategic Planning Retreats: Working with our Strategic Planning services, we’ve assisted several organizations in the development of their vision, strategic thinking, and tactical planning. In all of these projects, we bring to the table the powerful tools of Dr. Edward de Bono to make the retreats more effective.
