Critical Thinking Skills (D2)



In today’s society, many people experience information overload.  We are bombarded with messages to believe various ideas, purchase things, support causes, and lead our lifestyle in a particular way.  How do you know what to believe?  How do you separate the truth from the myths?

The answer lies in critical thinking skills.  The ability to clearly reason through problems and to present arguments in a logical, compelling way has become a key skill for survival in today’s world.  This workshop will give you practical tools and hands-on experience with critical thinking and problem solving.


Define critical and non-critical thinking
Identify your critical thinking style(s), including areas of strength and improvement
Describe other thinking styles, including left/right brain thinking and whole-brain thinking
Work through the critical thinking process to build or analyse arguments
Develop and evaluate explanations
Improve key critical thinking skills, including active listening and questioning
Use analytical thought systems and creative thinking techniques
Prepare and present powerful arguments


Every individual requires this life-long skill whether in business decision making or in a private capacity. Confidence will grow from learning critical thinking skills and will empower and equip both the team member and managers to work with understanding, towards organisational goals.


The primary objective of our training is to ensure that the knowledge acquired is applied successfully, adding real value and making a visible difference to work performance in the business environment.  The courses have a strong focus on an outcomes based approach and are facilitated on a highly interactive basis encouraging active delegate participation using:
