Critical Thinking Skills for Managing
"Rational decision making is linear and is what you do when you put your facts in order. Intuition is looking at those facts and trying to see a pattern-and the patterns aren't always evident because the patterns aren't always linear. The two together are an extremely powerful combination." Joel Kurtzman, President, Kurtzman Associates and former editor, Harvard Business Review. The Critical Thinking Skills for Managing course charts the concepts and skills that can transform competent leaders into discerning situation analysts, focused problem solvers, and powerful decision makers. The course offers analysis methodology that will sharpen managerial ability through all the stages of the critical thinking process; situation assessment, problem solving, and decision making. Leaders will learn how to hone their issue identification skills, refine their questioning techniques, and maximize their decision-making outcomes. Critical thinking processes are broken down into discreet stages or steps that can be applied and tracked easily. Mastering the processes in this course can result in better action planning and implementation throughout the organization.
