Beyond the Box: Critical Thinking Tactics for Leaders


In-House Option Available

To thrive and survive in this complex world, we must think and behave differently.

In order to achieve this, organisations must engage their employees. However, a lack of psychological safety and trust leads to a decline in critical thinking and healthy conflict, lowering creativity, resilience, and growth.

This is not a sustainable approach, and organisations must address this big concern. This programme seeks to change the way leaders and managers, and employees within the workplace, think, behave, and respond to complex problems.

So why are critical thinking skills more important than ever?

We are at a watershed moment in the workplace, with increased disengagement, stress, and burnout, as well as a crucial need for creative and analytical thinking abilities.

With workplace engagement at a critical low, there's a clear demand for a shift in how organisations operate and engage their employees.

The lack of psychological safety and trust is significantly hampering critical thinking and innovation, making it imperative for organisations to address these issues to remain sustainable and grow.

Key takeaways:

1. The History and Evolution of Critical Thinking: A comprehensive overview of how critical thinking has developed over time and its relevance in today’s world.

2. The Psychology of Critical Thinking: Insights into the cognitive processes behind critical thinking and how to harness them.

3. Impact of Organisational Dysfunction: Examination of how internal dysfunctions within organisations impede progress and innovation.

4. The Seduction of Technology: A critical look at how technology, while beneficial, can also detract from critical thinking and human engagement.

5. Navigating a VUCA World: Strategies for adapting to the Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA) of the modern world.

6. Leadership Failures: Analysis of current leadership gaps contributing to the crisis in critical thinking and organisational engagement.

7. Practical Tools and Techniques: Actionable methods and tools that participants can immediately apply to enhance critical thinking and foster a more engaged, innovative workplace.

Participants will leave the workshop with a radically transformed perspective on critical thinking, equipped with practical tools and insights to drive change in their organisations and personal lives. This course promises a profound shift in how challenges are approached, ensuring participants will never see things in the same light again.

"Are courses accredited?"

ILM Logo

Courses such as PTT Train the Trainer, Advanced PTT Train the Trainer, Master Trainer, Coaching Skills for Managers/Trainers, Master Coach, Presentation Skills, Management Development Programmes and Essential Skills for Managers are all accredited by the ILM. Based in the UK as part of the City & Guilds group they are a leading provider of specialist qualifications.  ILM is also recognised globally and many of their products and services are delivered and enjoyed by customers in many countries around the world.

"Do I have to complete a portfolio or pass an exam to complete the course?"

On courses that are accredited, they are performance assessed.  No portfolios or additional tests or statements are required.  Whilst on the training delegates are shown the skills and techniques required and they are then given opportunities to practise and develop.  During this time our trainers offer support and guidance accordingly. A formal assessment is then conducted at the end of the course and one to one feedback is given focusing on what was done well and areas for development.

"What is the difference between Coaching and Training?"

There are often mistakes regarding understanding the differences between the two methods.

Coaching - A conversation between the coach and the coachee whereby the coachee achieves a higher level and understanding of awareness and self-awareness, while the coach provides a safe environment and structure for that outcome to occur.

Training -  Training is teaching or developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one's capability, capacity, productivity and performance and to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life.

To train, you need to know the skill, to coach you don’t because it is more about the person.

How can these be miss-understood? I know the English language does not help with a ski instructor and a tennis coach, but coaching and training are different. I see the cross between coach and mentor is the same; the key is to understand the boundaries between them all.
