HIGHLIGHT: Critical Thinking for Business Growth
This interactive workshop will look at:
• Some of the more common ways we go wrong in our thinking, including framing effects, confirmation bias and the availability heuristic.
• Developing some fundamental techniques in critical thinking: questioning the information, looking at the credibility of sources, engaging in hypothetical and counterfactual reasoning.
• Learning to differentiate between different forms of reasoning, showing how that affects the strength of conclusions, and how it can bring out hidden assumptions.
The aim is to develop a critical thinking 'toolkit' that gives a methodological basis for decisions, essential in conditions of change or conflict.
