THNK DIY – Learn how to think differently

Henry Ford famously said that if he had given people what they wanted, he would have had to come up with faster horses. When you’re facing a problem or when you are stuck in a situation, what you really need is another perspective. Unfortunately, our brains are not wired to think differently.


At THNK we believe in the power of sharing and educating through experience. This is why we will make more of our tools and methodology available to you over the next months so you can learn how to think differently. As a first step, we opened up the MIRROR and now we would like to share the ReFrame with you.


How do you go from looking at Mauritius as a small and insignificant island in the Indian Ocean to seeing Mauritius as the largest ocean state in the world? Reframing is an easy, four-step process to generate creative approaches for your own life and work. The technique of reframing is described in Reframing - the art of thinking differently by THNK faculty Karim Benammar and is rooted in the theory of paradigms by Thomas Kuhn.

Reframing will take you out of your mental comfort zone, enabling you to discover new perspectives and creative solutions. It’s also a lot of fun - if you can make yourself chuckle during the process, you’re on the right path.
