The Art of Critical Thinking and Why It Is Essential - [website] Email Print
Published: 5th of Nov 2021 by: Staff Writer

When we're faced with a problem, most of us probably do our best to analyse what went wrong and how to fix it. What we don't often do, is structure our though processes to ensure we work through it systematically and in depth.

Critical Thinking is a skill... A skill worth investing in.

Our course on Critical Thinking and Problem Solving is designed around gaining the skills to first analyse the problem in depth before moving onto designing a long-lasting solution. The methodology we work with systematically takes you through all the possible variables.

Fact is, without identifying the root cause of an issue, it's impossible to arrive at the correct decision with regards to a solution. We have to put in the time to critically assess exactly has gone wrong or what our next step should be, otherwise we are simply dealing with a 'symptom'.

During this workshop, you're going to become aware of how often you jump from Step 1 - acknowledging there's a problem, to Step 5 - implementing a poorly thought out solution. The intervening, and vitally important, steps 2, 3 and 4 are omitted. Why? Because you are dealing with what you're seeing before you've come close to understanding why you are facing this particular difficulty. Understanding why it's there in the in the first place is the key to resolving the issue.

As a result of this hasty action, the same situation is repeated tomorrow, and you're now required to tweak your previous solution, and so on...

Critical thinking is a skill which has to be taught and developed. You need to know which tools to use and how to apply these effectively.

This is where our Critical thinking workshop comes in. We explore all aspects related to developing a lasting and informed approach, to finding the right solution in a particular set of circumstances.

The ability to think critically is highly relevant for anyone, at any level, who is tasked with finding solutions to problems which beset our daily working lives. That means it's absolutely necessary for you and your team to join us on one of our Critical Thinking and Problem Solving workshops.
