Level six changes are about creativity and innovation
When talking about level six changes, Rolf Smith felt like there were two traps he needed to avoid. Using the word “creativity” was too touchy feely for those who considered the bottom line first, and “innovation” connoted too dramatic of a change, something that leaves people behind. Yet, level six is about those things; it is about doing what no one else is doing.
Level six thinkers tend to be rule breakers with lots of different interests. They are usually considered way out there by other members of the workforce. Their offices will have piles because out of sight is out of mind, so anything in a filing cabinet is not likely to be remembered by them. You may have to clean something off of a chair in order to sit down when you go into a level six thinker’s office.
To get to level six thinking, Smith suggests moving 27 things in the home that haven’t been moved in a year. This may make others in the home mad, but it will jump start changing thinking patterns.
Writing down what you do different every time you do something different will help reinforce the idea that different is good. Making jokes complete with punch lines about the problem can also help with generating ideas
