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. Some people may be naturally skilled at critical thinking, but everyone can improve.

That’s the purpose of this class—to give you an opportunity to practice your critical thinking skills. The first module reviews the critical thinking process, critical thinking traits, and common mistakes, while the remainder of the program offers case studies to apply and improve your critical thinking skills. This 3-hour instructor-led recorded seminar offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
