How to Use Critical Thinking in Your Everyday Tasks

TalkShop critical thinking tipsWe all make decisions every day. There is so much information from which to select. In the workplace, complex situations demand a more rational approach. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO simplifies the steps to critical thinking:

1. Conceptualize – Is the problem clear? If not, break it down into manageable questions.

2. Analyze – Is the concern valid? This is the time to question, probe, and confirm.

3. Assess the situation – Do your research. Nothing beats having facts to substantiate and reinforce your point.

4. Consider evidence – Be fair and open-minded. Consider your biases. Determine the most logical alternatives that are best supported by the facts.

5. Take action. In some instances, it may be best to defer or not to take action.

Viesca advises that “It pays for an organization to encourage critical thinking as a regular activity that sharpens the skills of managers, cultivate collaboration, and arrive at sound decisions for the business to endure and succeed.
