The concept of 6 thinking hats is used in various areas. It was also used during the tsunami of the year 2004 which occurred in Sri Lanka. This tool really helped in reconstruction after the devastation caused by the tsunami. The tool of 6 thinking hats is time-saving and also easy to implement. Each member of the group will know its task well after assigning the hat.

With this concept, all the team members can develop more intellectual thinking and they can face any dangerous situation with ease. It can also be adopted by individuals for self-development. They can get multiple solutions to a problem. 


  1. Relevant Experience: You want to follow someone who knows what they are doing.
  2. Results-Oriented: Good leaders will always look at measurable results.  Numbers are the only fair way for compensation and promotion
  3. Fair:  A good leader will go to the mat for their people.  They will also be effective in the discipline as well.  Culture is a breathing thing. Follow the praise publically/discipline privately motto
  4. Ethical:  Don’t roll your eyes.  Good people will not work effectively over the long term with unethical people. 
  5. Visionary:  Sees the future years before it happens.  Steve Jobs was visionary and saw the future of technology long before it happened. 
  6. Team Oriented:  You have to love, respect people, my friend…or learn how to program computers
  7. Controls Emotions:  Sure, it's ok to blow up, but on occasion and with a cause.  Typically, leaders are sober people in control
  8. Financial Conservative:  Results, numbers-oriented people do not bet the farm  on a passing fancy
  9. Good Work Ethic:  Seriously, people do not follow slackers unless they are slackers
  10. Humility: It's OK to be human, make mistakes, but learn to apologize and be humble
  1. Leaders are agents of change
  2. The customer is the priority
  3. Leadership is inclusive
  4. Leadership is no longer hierarchical
  5. There is a new vernacular
  6. There is shared accountability
  7. Digital Literacy
  8. Innovation
  9. Risk-Taking
  10. Adaptability


Regardless of whether you are driving a small team or a vast association, all leadership attempts start with self-leadership. Self-leadership starts with thoughtfulness and improvement of one's passionate knowledge. Leaders must know themselves first before they can successfully lead others.

Singular leadership: 

Individual leadership is about execution at an abnormal state as an individual giver. Leadership isn't just an element of a situation on an organizational diagram, yet also a singular performance. Anybody at any degree of an association can be a leader, notwithstanding when they are not in a formal leadership position.. Singular leaders are perceived for their leadership in establishing the tone and elevated requirements in their work.

Team leadership: 

Team leadership is the leadership of a small team. It includes direct collaboration between the leader and their supporters. By and large, the leader is in constant contact with their team individuals, and the leader is in charge of everything the team does or neglects to do.
