"You have a brain and a mind of your own. Use it, and reach your own decisions." - Napolean Hill
Have you ever solved one problem only to realize that you have created a bigger one?
Have you ever thought you solved the problem but then discovered you only cured the symptom and didn't fix the root cause?
Have you ever faced the dilemma of being more logical or emotional while making decisions?
The reason these things happen is because you are not thinking critically.
Critical thinking is a skill that allows you to make logical and informed decisions to the best of your ability. In fact, American Management Institute rates Critical Thinking skill as one of the most important skill for a leader. Critical thinking is both the mindset and the application of some real simple tools.
We take so many decisions on a daily basis, personally and professionally. These decisions, some critical and some not so critical, are based on the way we process the information , data, facts or evidences. Inability to process and analyze information effectively can make or break someone's career. This is where critical thinking skill plays a huge role in our ability to manage a situation or problem or just take a decision.

This session activated a different way of approach to things in professional life as well as personal. Need to work on few important points related to evaluating the situations like checking bias, persuasion ability to now analyze facts and situation in a structure manner. Gained better clarity on the concluding certain questions using critical thinking. Now have the ability to achieve the objective in a more focused approach. Great course.

Thanks so much Yukti, For such a structured and in-depth learning on Critical thinking process. Through this course, I learnt that Critical Thinking is based on logic, data, focus, taking time to determine the pros and cons and never judgmental. Critical thinking is first being aware of what skill I already have and which one requires attention by self reflection daily, planting it in subconscious mind and trusting it and see the positive result. As you said, I promise to go one-level deeper every day.

This course provided powerful framework and ways to improve my critical thinking skills. Such a framework would help me in taking rational and explainable decisions. Things can always go wrong but I'll at least have good reasons to support the decision instead of excuses. Awareness about such a framework definitely helps in developing critical thinking framework in the subconscious mind. Now my part is to practice these practical tools in my life.
