Government employees at all levels of the organization who wish to enhance their ability to “think critically” to deal effectively with the volume and complexity of information in our every day lives.


In a fast-paced world with information overload, organizations require strong critical thinking skills to support high performance. Critical thinking is the ability to analyze the information presented to discern and form an unbiased judgment. Critical thinking is a learned skill where both cognitive and mental faculties are used to put thoughts and emotions in perspective to impact the process. In this course, you will learn the parameters that influence critical and non-critical thinking. You will also learn how to use analytical thought systems and creative thinking tools to become more effective in dealing with workload and relationships.
