Dialectic: Critical Thinking Workshop

Public Training: Critical Thinking Workshop - April 24, 2018

Want to make fewer mistakes? Increase confidence in your work? Bring new ideas to the table?

Join us for the first-ever session of the 25 Waterloo Public Training Event Series!

We are pleased to introduce Aaron Barth, President at Dialectic.  For over 15 years, he has been teaching critical thinking to businesses and professionals, from automotive giants to community hospitals. Aaron combines a personal, down-to-earth style with learner-centric activities to create an experience participants don’t forget.

Aaron will be facilitating both workshops:  Fast Thinking & Slow Thinking and Advanced Problem Solving.  

Fast Thinking / Slow Thinking Workshop
This full day workshop is designed to provide the foundation for critical thinking.  
You Need To: Make fewer mistakes, increase confidence in your work, and bring new ideas to the table.
The Solution: This accessible and easy to understand critical thinking primer, Fast and Slow Thinking, will give you both the confidence to trust your gut and the skills to deeply analyze the important decisions facing you and your organization.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Identify cognitive biases that undermine decision-making
  • Recognize emotions that hijack your thinking
  • Challenge assumptions that lead to group-think
  • Uncover root causes that lead to unnecessary costs
  • Ignore gut-feelings that cause bad decisions
  • Realign thinking to your Mission, Vision, and Values
