Additional 7th Thinking Hat?

A potential seventh thinking hat could be an Orange Hat: thinking of moving forward in a such way as climbing a ladder of successes, SMART leadership, result-oriented.

Using Six Hats to Stimulate Moving Forward Thinking

Moving forward thinking comes under the Green Hat - new ideas, concepts, opportunities, possibilities.
The real power of 6TH comes from using a sequence of hats. Here's a short sequence of hats that a smart leader could apply for a results-oriented session:
  • BLUE - Why are we here, what is the process? Where do we want to go?
  • WHITE - What information, data do we know? What don't we know?
  • GREEN - In what ways might we achieve our goal?
  • BLUE - Let's decide on next steps and who does what
This simple sequence would be sufficient to initiate action and mobilize people to begin moving forward.
