Professional Development Workshop: Critical Thinking Skills

 


More organizations today, than ever before, look for employees who complement domain knowledge with good thinking and communication skills. The World Economic Forum lists Critical thinking among the top three skills required for executive success at work. Good critical thinking skills results in better problem solving and superior decision making. Employees who learn quickly and can solve problems, think critically, gather and analyze information meaningfully are critical to every organization. These Critical Thinking skills can be acquired by everyone. Students, young professionals, aspiring managers and leaders can all benefit from understanding critical thinking.
