Office Hours: Critical Thinking Skills are the Foundation of a Learning Culture
September 14, 2018
As more work tasks become automated, humans are challenged to start to think more critically about work.
With time freed to think critically, we can work in a less templated way, exercising an innately human ability: creativity. Thinking critically about a task at hand, we can deduce a response that's unique. It's not based on an algorithm, it comes from intuition and experience. And, ultimately, our organizations benefit.
The ability to think critically at work can be heightened through continued education, argues Carol Anderson, principal at Anderson Performance Partners. In this video, Anderson explains that a true culture of learning is built on a foundation of critical thinking.
