(Approximately 75 to 90 minutes)
In this webinar you will learn how to make effective decisions and solve problems using critical thinking and simple, practical tools. You make decisions and solve problems everyday. Learn how to apply critical thinking techniques to these activities.
Every organization must be nimble when solving new and recurring challenges; and everyone within the organization must be able to use critical thinking and creative problem solving to take action on these challenges. Learn to avoid the tendency to start solving a problem before it is clearly defined. Admit to poor decisions and take corrective action, even if it’s tough.
Adopt approaches that work and learn to:
- Solve problems and make effective decisions using critical thinking and simple, practical tools
- Increase decision accuracy even when information is limited
- Minimize poor decisions; neutralize the effects of stress, emotions, and distractions on decisions
- Make great decisions using conflict creatively.
- Use critical thinking to challenge all assumptions and seek alternative information
In addition to an introduction to the basic critical thinking tools of problem solving and decision making, you will receive references to increase your knowledge and skills.
