Critical Thinking for Problem Solving

Short course Hawthorn, Online Send me a link to this course

Critical thinking and problem solving are the top employability skills in an increasingly automated world, where employers are looking for professionals able to think independently, evaluate complex flows of information quickly and make decisions in uncertain environments. Critical thinking enables us to deal with unprecedented situations, solve complex problems and make sound decisions with greater clarity and confidence. 

Critical thinking minimizes rework, enhances productivity and helps to reduce stress in the workplace. Research shows that companies that invested in staff critical thinking training experienced considerable improvement in employee performance and ROI. In this interactive and practical workshop, participants will be building their own Critical and Design Thinking Toolbox that can be used when ‘tried and tested’ approaches no longer work. 

Who should attend?

Working professionals, team leaders, business owners, managers, entrepreneurs, leaders, and everyone interested in improving productivity and performance by effective problem solving and decision-making.
