    Training for Critical Thinking, the Right Way
    with Rob Foshay

    Rob Foshay

    Critical thinking certainly seems to be in short supply these days. Strategically, at every level, your organization needs better critical thinking — and so does our society.

    • Does your training embed critical thinking, for every job in your organization? 
    • Are you sure you know what critical thinking is? 
    • Did you know that if you teach it the wrong way, you can actually cause damage? 
    We’ll do a quick review of what critical thinking is — and is not. Then, we’ll discuss a practical 5-step instructional strategy for teaching critical thinking the right way.
