Critical Thinking and Decision Making

Help your team gain the skills needed to become powerful critical thinkers.

The ability to clearly reason through problems and to present logical, compelling arguments is a pivotal skill needed in today’s workplace. Critical thinkers are unbiased, decisive, independent from others’ approval and able to rely on logic when making choices. To encourage your team to think critically, ask employees how they make most of their decisions. Is it based on evidence, rather than emotion? Can the decision justified with proof rather than intuition?

Critical-thinking is a learned skill, but teaching your employees how to do this isn’t always an easy task—especially if, as a leader, you tend make to quick decisions that aren’t thought all the way through. The best way to encourage critical thinking is to lead by example.  If a leader makes knee-jerk reactions that do not take all stakeholders into account, it will be hard to cultivate a culture of critical thinking. Good thinking practices need to be modeled by the senior management team.

This two-day workshop will teach your team key strategies and hands-on experience needed to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. A must-have for every organization, our Critical Thinking Skills Workshop will teach your team members how to identify their individual thinking style, strengthen their critical thinking abilities and master how to effectively communicate their message.
