Critically Thinking About Critical Thinking

Have you ever examined another person's solution to a problem and found yourself frustrated and asking yourself "What were they thinking?" when you realize that the person's actions actually compounded the problem rather than solving it. Most have, and often it is due to a lack of critical thinking.

In this webinar, the presenters first define the problem and then discuss why critical thinking skills are so important in the workforce. Then they describe the characteristics of critical and non-critical thinkers and what this means to employers who depend on others to make the business successful. The remainder and the bulk of the presentation focuses on how attendees can improve these skills as well as how they can help others do the same. Leaders and individual contributors in technical fields who rely on others to solve problems and make sound decisions will find this presentation useful in their day-to-day dealings with co-workers.
