The ability to think critically separates the effective professional from others. A person who can think fast and well has far more mental resources for higher performance than his peers who lack good thinking skills. When you are armed with critical thinking tools, many benefits inevitably follow – you are able to identify thinking flaws, differentiate between good and bad suggestions, communicate persuasively, manage difficult people or circumstances, and more.
Benefits to You
Good thinking skills allow managers to improve their top and bottom-line outcomes by becoming better at problem solving, decision making and strategic planning. Critical thinking also improves productivity by saving time from “inhibiting” thinking outcomes and increases your profits through improved abilities in negotiation, persuasion and outsmarting your rivals.
