Developing Essential Critical Thinking Skills
In today’s fast-paced workplace, decisions often have to be made quickly, effectively and without doubt—making it increasingly important for employees to be able to think critically on their own.
Executives repeatedly highlight critical thinking skills as a sought-after trait in new hires and current employees; in an American Management Association survey, 72 percent of managers said current employees’ success is measured by their critical thinking abilities. Seventy-six percent of employers make an effort to assess critical thinking when hiring.
