About the course
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.
