“We mindlessly follow process, even when it’s obvious that it won’t turn out well.”
Critical thinking allows us to create an outcome when there is no obvious action. We want to accomplish something but don’t know how, so before we can act, we must think.
In this half day Critical Thinking workshop, learn how to think outside of the box. Using a series of questioning, creative, problem solving nudges, look at the problem through new eyes. Reframe your thinking by taking small steps to move from problem solving to outcome creating.
At the end of the workshop, participants will:
Understand when we need to critically think and why.
Learn how creativity and critical thinking is based on a series of small nudges, not a big 'Aha!'.
Use a 3-step critical thinking process that reframes problems and moves you to action.
Professional skills gained:
Develop your critical thinking muscle.
