Critical Thinking Boot Camp

The best way to learn is by doing – that's the idea behind the Critical Thinking Boot Camp, a two-day immersion course into critical thinking for managers.

Go In a Recruit, Emerge a Problem-Solving Master.

The Critical Thinking Boot Camp delivered by Executive Development Associates and powered by the Watson-Glaser™ II Critical Thinking Appraisal is an intensive, three-phase development process focused on learning practical decision-making and problem-solving skills that will have an IMMEDIATE impact on your bottom line. While there won't be any push-ups or sprints, each attendee will be immersed in masters level, vigorous training on critical thinking. They will be assessed, will work on their real work-related issues and be kept accountable by a coach as well as your management team. Seventy-four percent of participants say they applied new skills on the job!

Benefits to Your Organization

The Critical Thinking Boot Camp builds lasting problem-solving skills and a culture of critical thinking that translates directly to an organization's bottom line. Organizations that host a workshop are able to:

  • Demonstrate how improved critical thinking skills lead to more effective problem-solving, well reasoned decisions, improved strategic thinking, and better planning and implementation
  • Accomplish tangible, business-related work during training
  • Immediately show a return on training dollars invested
  • Build an organizational culture that rewards critical thinking

Decades of Difference Workshop

There is a demographic storm brewing. With different values and seemingly incompatible views on work style, generational groups have the potential to create conflict in the workplace.

What's in the storm?

  • Three distinct generations of employees with competing priorities, work styles and needs.

  • A huge Baby Boomer Generation on the verge of a mass exodus from the workplace

  • A significant lack of available, qualified talent for leadership positions

  • The massive and unique population of Generation Y marching into the workplace

Decades of Differences Workshops

Our Decades of Differences workshop(s) will help your leaders, managers and employees understand the distinct generational differences and how to flex to meet each group and individual in a personal and supportive way. Using the Golden Personality Type Profiler™, participants will receive both a Jungian 4-letter type and a 5th element for stress, as well as scores for 18 traits (facets) that help describe the unique personality of each person. The Golden is the perfect tool to help individuals better understand their unique personalities and relate to others more effectively. Combining The Golden's individual styles with the broader generational preferences make this workshop a powerful antidote to the often turbulent demographic issues in the workplace.
