Critical Thinking

Overview

Critical thinking is one of the most crucial skills in an era when unfiltered data pours in at an unprecedented rate and we must process it in order to form judgements, make decisions, and take actions. An increasingly complex world like ours presents increasingly complex problems. What worked in the past may no longer apply. To keep up, we must increase our mental range and our ability to use data judiciously, build strong arguments, make rational decisions and find solutions to complex situations.

This two-day course addresses the applied understanding of critical thinking. Through the use of scenarios, exercises, and case studies, it enables participants to develop specific intellectual techniques and thought processes that can be leveraged in their personal and professional lives.

During the course, the participants will also have the opportunity to hone their critical thinking skills by applying them to real-life dilemmas and challenges, encountered at their workplace and beyond.
