In today’s fast-paced workplace, decisions often have to be made quickly, effectively and without doubt. It is increasingly important for employees to be able to think critically on their own. When employees excel at critical thinking, they can assess all possible approaches to a problem and choose the best solution confidently and calmly. Critical thinking skills webinars will help participants think more creatively and independently, make better decisions by problem solving systematically, and better identify the value of ideas and reach well-reasoned conclusions.
What is Critical Thinking?
Critical thinking is a skill that most would agree is important in the workplace. But what is it, exactly?
Critical thinking is reasonable, reflective thinking that is focused on deciding what to believe and what to do. It requires collecting information and then thoughtfully evaluating it in order to guide decision making. Critical thinking helps you to make better decisions by engaging in logical reasoning, avoiding mistakes due to bias or inaccurate assumptions, and systematically working through options to identify the most relevant and reasonable solution.
Why is Critical Thinking important?
Executives repeatedly highlight critical thinking skills as a sought-after trait in new hires and current employees. The AMA Critical Skills Survey asked thousands of managers and executives to assess the importance of critical thinking skills. Seventy-two percent agreed that current employees’ success is measured by their critical thinking skills. When asked if their organizations make an effort to assess critical thinking when hiring new employees, seventy-six percent said yes.
Improving Critical Thinking Skills
Critical thinking might be described as the ability to engage in reflective and independent thinking. Some people may be naturally skilled at critical thinking, but everyone can improve. Critical thinkers rigorously question ideas and assumptions rather than accepting them at face value. They will always seek to determine whether the ideas, arguments and findings represent the entire picture and are open to finding that they do not.
Our free Critical Thinking Webinars help strengthen your ability to reason by enforcing the principles of active learning rather than be a passive recipient of information.
