Critical Thinking and Business Acumen in the Workplace

Participants gain an understanding of the importance of critical thinking and its application. Fast and slow thinking are explored first and then participants learn how to parse arguments into premises and conclusions and evaluate the strength of arguments based on conclusions and supporting premises. Participants learn frameworks and processes for structured thinking and analysis. They learn how to recognize and overcome the brain’s biases and reactive tendencies in order to avoid common traps and make better decisions.

1. Describe and define critical thinking and the business acumen competency in the context of their work and their organization
2. Accurately parse simple arguments into premises and conclusions.
3. Evaluate the strength of simple arguments based on conclusions and supporting premises.

5. Understand where fast, reflective thinking is appropriate and when to slow down and think critically.
