The Habits of Mind are a set of 16 thinking skills that intelligent thinkers use to solve problems in which the answer is unknown. Created by Arthur Costa and Bena Kallick, these thinking skills or habits, are present in the best decision makers. This fortnight’s Habit is Creating, Imagining & Innovating.
By allowing yourself to go beyond your perceived boundaries, you can discover and generate new approaches you never thought possible. Examine each potential approach from different angles and accept criticism – both positive and negative – to help you refine your solution.
