Consider different perspectives and roles to uncover new knowledge, ideas, and facts.
By assigning roles, represented by hats, to your team and encouraging them to wear these hats during discussions, you can help them to focus on specific aspects of the conversation and uncover valuable information that might otherwise be overlooked. This technique can lead to more productive and effective discussions, as well as encourage creative problem-solving and out-of-the-box thinking within your team.
