This book is dedicated to the unconventional thinkers, to those who dare to think different. Change is risky and perhaps even scary, but inevitable especially during these uncertain times. Different results require not just doing something different but thinking different about thinking different. Innovator Rolf Smith identifies the 7 Levels of change and each involves doing and moving your thinking into action to drive change. Level 1 starts by Doing the right things, ending at Level 7 by Doing things that can't be done. In this Second Edition of 7 Levels of Change, Smith shares the strategies behind the thinking expeditions he has led many of the world's largest corporations on so that they can experience new energy, commitment, and self-confidence at any level and within every sector of their organizations during these most trying times. Complete with 8 Mindmaps for visual learners, each designed to capture ideas in chunks and make them easy to see. Mindmaps make it possible to use your whole brain-both the creative and analytical sides-by freeing you from linear thinking.
