Description

The success and sustainability of an organization largely depends on the quality of thinking that occurs within organization.  While the age of technology has provided us with faster and broader accessibility to information, it has also brought some challenges: How can we be sure that information is accurate? How can we make sound decisions while considering so much information that is sometimes contradictory?  How do we coach and support others to think more critically?  

This course will provide you with an opportunity to gain understanding of critical thinking concepts, and apply critical thinking skills in the process of problem solving.  The course explores leadership strategies of cultivating critical thinking, coaching others to think critically, and capitalizing on groups to support critical thinking in organization.

Who this course is for:
  • Organization leaders, managers, and decision makers
  • Organization internal consultants, trainers, and coaches
  • Executive and management coaches
  • Students and anyone else, interested in critical thinking and organizational practices
