Public Seminar: Critical Thinking
This January 27 to 28, join us for a workshop on critical thinking. The seminar is ideal for professionals who want to enhance their thinking processes to achieve better results in business, as well as individuals who desire to develop critical thinking and problem solving as a core competency.
Critical thinking helps us separate truth from lies in our daily lives, too often bombarded with information and advertisements. The ability to clearly reason through problems and to present arguments in a logical, compelling way has become a key skill 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 skills, identify their thinking styles (as well as areas of strength and improvement) and discuss left/right/whole brain thinking. The workshop will help attendees work through the critical thinking process to build or analyze arguments, develop and evaluate explanations and improve key critical thinking skills to present powerful arguments.
