Critical Thinking Workshop

How to Use Critical Thinking to Make Better Decisions

Critical thinking brain with question marks

When you are at work, you are bogged down by complaints from customers, unappreciative comments from bosses, and hurtful snipes from colleagues.

When you are at outside work, you get bombarded with information on what life-style to follow, what items to buy, even what food to eat.

How do you know who and what to believe? Can you distinguish truths from myths, facts from opinions? How do you solve a problem when you don’t have all the information?

The answer lies in Critical Thinking.

With Critical Thinking skills, you will make faster and better decisions even when you don’t have all the facts. You can quickly get to the root of the problem where you can analyse alternatives effectively. You can even tell when salespeople are applying pressure to make you buy. And as you become more aware of your personal biases, you can quickly distinguish between facts, opinions, generalisations and fallacies.

Learn at this workshop how to use Critical Thinking skills to make better decisions. You will get hands-on practice using these skills to identify problems, analyse claims and arguments, and make better decisions.
