In our knowledge economy, quality of thought is key to market differentiation. In fact, The World Economic Forum lists critical thinking as a top skill needed for professional success. This core philosophical skill supports problem-solving, breaks down echo chambers, and helps sort fact from fiction. The result is a firm foundation on which to build your work and weather the storms that will come.
Everyone knows how to think, but busyness and normal challenges such as cognitive biases mean we don’t always think our best. In this Critical Thinking workshop from Philosophy at Work we will learn positive ways to check the quality of our thinking and achieve greater cognitive confidence.
“It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to apply it well.”
Participants will leave this Critical Thinking workshop with:
- A deeper understanding of critical thinking and how it affects their day-to-day work;
- Our 3-step approach for evaluating thought processes;
- Practical tools for spotting assumptions, biases and other common reasoning pitfalls; and
- A personal plan for taking their critical thinking practice forward.
“We all enjoyed the 2 hours, but more importantly we came away from it with a methodical and consistent approach to challenging our own, and our clients’, biases. Life skill learnt; I recommend Philosophy at Work without hesitation”.
