Food for Thought – Thinking Skills in the Modern Age
An innovative approach to improving critical thinking and decision-making skills
'One of the most valuable courses currently available... essential for decision makers'
'One of the best workshops I've experienced in a long time'
"It definitely gets you thinking about your own conscious/subconscious biases and the way situations affect how you think, react, or approach them."
"This workshop will not only help in a professional capacity but also in a personal one too, and that can only be a positive!"
"It gives analysts, especially newer analysts a better understanding of the thought process and how to use it within the analytical environment"
"I was sceptical at first about what this would help with. However I have come out with a different mindset, ready to tackle how I go about my work differently"
Information is thrown at us from all angles and all corners of the globe; from international TV news to social media and viral videos, we have more to process than ever before. When not all that information is true, or when it is twisted to suit an agenda, we have a serious problem. In this hectic era, we are all already stretching our mental capacities to maximum and, just like a computer, there is only so much we can handle before our brains crash.
Who should attend?
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
Realise the impact of modernisation on our thinking and planning skills.
Assess the objective strength of information using appropriate techniques and sources.
Enhance self-awareness of what shapes and influences your thought processes.
Make better, more accurate decisions using reflective critical thinking techniques.
