Date: Wednesday, March 30th, 2016
Time: 2:00pm ET
Every day, your employees are confronted with new, complex, ambiguous challenges. The great thinkers identify opportunities, generate new ideas, and solve problems effectively. The ones that lack critical thinking skills keep your PR team, HR department, corporate lawyers busy.
Organizations that attract, retain, and develop the best critical thinkers have a huge competitive advantage.
The better thinker you are, the more effective your decision making and problem solving activities will be. If there’s one thing every organization needs, it’s more effective thinkers. While some argue that critical thinking is an innate skill, we’ll show that critical thinking is not only a skill to be developed, but it is part of a wider set of skills that make up Cognitive Readiness- the latest Hot Topic in Leadership Development.

- An understanding of the role critical thinking plays in a VUCA business environment
- How to Define and Identify Cognitive Readiness skills
- A proven model for teaching applied critical thinking
- How to measure thinking ability by assessing a person’s “RED-iness”
- Identify techniques that can be used to apply critical thinking to everyday business challenges
