Critical Thinking (Live Online)

Critical thinking skills give you ways to arrive at better decisions and can help you determine what matters most in any business challenge.

Critical thinking is the ability to understand correctly information, a situation or problem from different perspectives in order to suggest or take the best possible action.  In 21st century business, it's truly an essential skill for success—and a proven way to distinguish yourself and your organizational contributions.
 
Utilizing models, application and live-skills practice right at your desktop, this seminar provides you with the knowledge and tools you need to apply critical thinking effectively in your organization. Rather than focusing on the science of critical thinking, this course explores the art of applying critical thinking skills in a business setting and gives you hands-on practice and feedback so you can use them immediately when you return to work.
