Overview

It’s not just for geniuses. Everyone can learn to think creatively, analytically, and quickly with brain-boosting activities for the workplace.

Unimaginative. Risk-adverse. Prone to group-think. These are not just empty complaints about today’s employees. A recent article in Newsweek found solid data that proves a “creativity crisis” is plaguing America.

Yet critical thinking, the ability to approach a problem both analytically and creatively, is the bedrock of success for companies and their people. Fortunately, it’s a skill that can be learned.

The Critical Thinking Tool Kit aims to get employees thinking better and faster with 35 hands-on activities and ready-to-use assessments. Team members work on challenging assumptions, brainstorming divergent ideas, and then pinpointing the ones that best benefit an organization. And they’ll learn to do it in real-life speed—quickly!

The training exercises in The Critical Thinking Tool Kit offer an invigorating departure from the everyday—with the potential for big payoffs in the form of enhanced “on-your-feet” thinking, innovative problem-solving, and profitable idea generation from everyone on the team.
