Overview

Steps to Making Clearer and More Effective Decisions

In this fast-paced world, one thing is certain: We need sharp critical thinkers who are able to size up a situation, realize the potential where others may not, and seize opportunities through prompt decision making.

We all perform some level of critical thinking in our daily lives, yet most of us don’t really know what it entails or how we do what we do. 

This preview offers you a practical introduction to the highly popular AMA seminar, Critical Thinking. We’ll introduce you to the RED model of critical thinking and describe the basics of putting it into action using a practical case study.

What You Will Learn

AMA's Critical Thinking seminar walks you through making reasoned judgments that are well thought out. Join us to get a preview of how the seminar reveals the methods used to improve your ability to engage in logical and rational thinking, including:
  • How the RED (Recognize assumptions, Evaluate arguments, Draw conclusions) Model is used to get to a decision point
  • The importance of separating facts from opinions
  • Three steps you can take to apply critical thinking skills right away

While attending this preview is FREE, reservations are required.
