What separates the effective from the less effective professional is clear: the ability to think critically and competently. Simply put, the individual who can think fast and well has a lot more mental resources to achieve higher performance than his peers who lack good thinking skills. According to researchers and business professionals, this is true for almost any field including engineering, retail, law enforcement, finance, and so on.
There is no doubt that good thinking skills are crucial for personal and professional excellence. When you are armed with critical thinking tools, many benefits inevitably follow. For example, you will know how to identify thinking flaws, differentiate between good and bad suggestions, communicate persuasively, manage difficult people or circumstances, and more.
In this program the trainer will highlight some of the (very) common reasoning flaws, as well as ways to overcome them. Accordingly, he will illustrate some examples of good vs. bad thinking that occur at the workplace, and the consequences of them at the individual and organizational levels.
