Critical Thinking

Course Details

Disruptions such as COVID-19 and technological innovations have undeniably accelerated the pace of change in the business world. One result is a growing demand for business leaders who have the capacity to analyze complex situations and make effective decisions. Additionally, corporations need the spirit of entrepreneurial business professionals who can communicate their analysis and solutions convincingly to gain buy-in from diverse audiences, both inside and outside one’s organization.

In this course, you will be challenged to practice a new way of thinking and communication through live and interactive discussions via case studies and multiple exercises based on current managerial dilemmas.

Upon completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Tackle today’s business environment with agility, by processing, evaluating, and making decisions effectively and efficiently
  • Systematically process issues, evaluate options, and communicate solutions to push your own agenda forward
  • Formulate and apply your own frameworks resulting in robust analysis free from preconceptions and bias
  • Immediately apply logic and communication techniques to get buy-in from your colleagues and clients
