North Shore Community College will hold their May Supervisors’ Connection, Think Critically & Solve Problems More Effectively, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, from 8-10 a.m. at NSCC’s Corporate Training Solutions (CTS), 1 Ferncroft Road, DS106, Danvers. Cost is $49 per workshop.
Does your organization continuously wrestle with the same problem(s)? Critical thinking is an antidote for stale approaches to recurring problems. The quickening pace of work, driven by global competition, emerging technologies, and new opportunities has affected the way we work. The influences of urgency and rampant multitasking discourage factual, relevant, objective, and evidence based thinking that enables effective problem solving.
Participants will learn to:
- Recognize and diagnose the entrenched thinking and decision making habits that have produced subpar results.
- Uncover bias and its influence on the quality of thinking and problem solving.
- Ask the right questions.
- Develop a stronger and defensible sense of reasoning.
- Separate fact from opinion to evaluate people and situations, objectively and accurately.
- Make decisions based on fact, logic, and objective thought
Facilitated discussion led by: Joe Ryan
