Critical Thinker

Make better decisions by using tools & techniques to understand and take the best course of action.

Why it’s important

Every minute of every day we are faced with a torrent of information – sales messages, persuasive arguments, questions to answer and opinions to form. How do we know which is the correct position to take? Which sources or arguments should we listen to? How do we determine who is more credible, how do we judge whether something is of value or not?

In order to make good decisions it is crucial that we are evaluating things critically and using good approaches to decide and take the best course of action. This means seeing through seductive and persuasive messages or emotionally-charged arguments or claims.
