What is Critical Thinking?
At its core, Critical Thinking involves “questioning assumptions, objectively evaluating information and then making logical and rational decisions”.
Why would I want to develop my Critical Thinking at this time?
Critical thinking is highly valued in the workplace as one of the key transferable employability skills. It is also becoming increasingly important in our personal lives.
Whilst sound decision-making has always been key, an explosion in the volume and speed at which we receive news (much of which is fake) has led to us facing a complex flow of information. Coupled with the challenges that life throws at us, objectively evaluating this mass of information is becoming increasingly difficult. By default, people who are able to make good decisions are more effective.
