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.

Executives repeatedly highlight critical thinking skills as a sought-after trait in new hires and current employees. The AMA Critical Skills Survey asked 2,115 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, 76 percent said yes.

This class will enable you to learn the components of critical thinking and avoid blocks to critical thinking. As a result, you'll be able to think more creatively and independently, make better decisions by problem solving systematically, identify the value of ideas and reach well-reasoned conclusions. This three hour-program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
