These innovative thinking methods have been tried and tested by many pupils and professionals, and they do seem to help people to be more creative and original.

Teaching knowledge is not enough. In order to survive and thrive in a complex world every youngster leaving school needs to be equipped with basic thinking skills. Just being good at argument and critical thinking is insufficient.

We need practical ways to solve problems. Ways that have a proven track record of working. Strategies that focus the mind on the task at hand. The 60 Lessons in the CoRT programme provides the internal framework of mind necessary in our modern, ever changing Society. Many Research Studies have been conducted on the benefits of CoRT thinking.
CoRT helps people in many ways.

  • Improves Behavior
  • Helps develop effective solutions
  • People see alternatives
  • Groups develop ideas without arguments
  • Brainstorm effectively
  • Focuses the mind on specific tasks

 

Can children be taught to think as a specific skill? And if they can, would it do any good?

ANSWER:YES they can, and YES it does.

The CoRT Programme has been used across the World; it is a universal thinking syllabus. It is being used by Nobel Laureates, Business Leaders, Civil Servants and Politicians throughout the world. It is also being used by 4 year olds.

CoRT IS SIMPLE AND IT WORKS!

I saw the system in action at an impasse during a seminar of Nobel laureates. When one of de Bono's thinking tools was injected into the discussion, the problem was quickly resolved.

I have become a convert. in 'Lateral Thinking' our normally haphazard way of thinking is replaced by a deliberate method that, in a prescribed and systematic way, solves the problems.

Logical thinking is the only kind of thinking that is encouraged in our educational system. dr. de Bono does well to expose so clearly the faults in a system that places exclusive reliance on one aspect of the mind alone.
