In an effort to curb the tide on ineffective decision-making that is apparent in today’s work environments, this course was created specifically to deepen the understanding and application of crucial critical thinking methodologies and practices. Critical thinking is hard work. Our natural tendencies often cause us to ignore logic, refuse to look at the facts, generate ludicrous ideas and at times become overwhelmed with emotion. Most often this happens at a time when quality thinking is needed most. In this course, students will explore the issues affecting critical thinking. It will introduce tools and techniques to develop skills to both understand and improve critical thinking. It begins with defining critical thinking and discusses how leaders can create an environment that enables and supports the critical thinking process. A decision-making model for real world application is introduced and participants apply critical thinking to the tasks and challenges faced at work. Thinking critically and creatively, and utilizing proven methods for problem solving and decision making are key to individual and organizational effectiveness.
