Event description

Are you a motivated individual seeking clarity and confidence in your thoughts and ideas? 

Do you want a better, "big picture", holistic thinking?

Do you want to argue persuasively and authoritatively for your viewpoints?

Do you want to workout your brain and stop mindless, unproductive multitasking? 

In today's busy world, full of distractions, it can be hard to really consider options carefully and reflect on our challenges. If we are constantly 'fire fighting', we are not developing our ideas or improving our mental processes. It zaps out creativity and leads to mistakes. 

This 6 week Critical Thinking course will help you articulate your position, engage in discussions, make logical decisions and make a more meaningful contribution in your work or personal life. We touch on argument analysis, logic and its flaws, techniques to 'think outside the box' and identify new leads and actions. We examine your cognitive biases, improve your self awareness and help you empathise with others. 

These skills are applied to real examples from your professional or personal life in weekly reflection tasks. These are carefully designed to help you elevate your thinking and create successful 'habits of mind' moving forward. 

Critical Thinking is consistently listed in the top 3 skills sought by employers and in future leaders. Whether you choose private coaching or seek training through your employer or company for professional development, you will need to be motivated to change the way your think if you undertake this course.
