Critical thinking is the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue that helps us make the best choice when deciding what to do or what to believe. Critical thinking may be the single-most valuable skill that you can bring to any job, profession, or life challenge. In this volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, decisions are more challenging than ever and choosing a single correct path seems almost impossible at times. This program will help to define and identify critical thinking and reasoning skills by exploring the "9 Traits of Critical Thinking" that contribute to effective problem solving. You will leave with a greater capacity for creative, agile, and responsive decision making.
