What to Expect

While being intelligent and passionate often result in work effectiveness and efficiency, that does not guarantee you to make a thoughtful and critical decision or solve a problem systematically. In times of crises such as a pandemic or global recession, it is crucial that intense emotions and impulses do not cloud over critical thinking at the workplace.

Professionals should apply critical thinking in all the aspects of workplace operations, to avoid any kind of costly and recurring mistakes. From recruitment to marketing to finance, all the organizational departments must emphasize practicing critical thinking for undertaking any workplace decisions.

Critical thinkers bring creative solutions to the table to solve business problems. If you can objectively evaluate information to make informed decisions while facing disruptions, you will have a much better chance to impress an employer. The course is made up of 2 parts: Module 1 (Basic) and Module 2 (Advanced).

Who Should Attend This Course
  • Leaders in any industry with 2-10+ years of experience
  • Mid-level professionals looking to improve and expand their influence and move into leadership roles
