Critical Thinking

Join a Critical Thinking: Competency and Action seminar on April 23 and 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and learn how to clearly reason through problems and present arguments in logical, compelling ways.

In today’s society, many people experience information overload. We are bombarded with messages to believe various ideas, purchase things, support causes, and lead our lifestyle in a particular way. How do you know what to believe? How do you separate the truth from the myths? The answer lies in critical thinking skills, which have become key for survival in today’s world. This two-day workshop will give you some practical tools and hands-on experience with critical thinking and problem solving.

Participants will define critical and non-critical thinking, identify your critical thinking style(s), including areas of strength and improvement, describe other thinking styles, including left/right brain thinking and whole-brain thinking, work through the critical thinking process to build or analyze arguments, develop and evaluate explanations, improve key critical thinking skills, use analytical thought systems and creative thinking techniques and prepare and present powerful arguments.

This course is encouraged for professionals who want to enhance their thinking processes to achieve better results in business and individuals who desire to develop critical thinking and problem solving as a core competency.
