Bitesize Learning

How often do you question your assumptions, judgements and decision-making?  Critical thinking, asking questions about the way you think and make decisions, is now considered an essential skill in the workplace.  Critical thinking can help individuals and teams work more effectively by diagnosing problems better, and coming up with better solutions.

For a range of useful worksheets and TED Talks about critical thinking visit the Unimenta website.

Studies have shown that 95% of people think they have good self-awareness, when in reality only about 10 – 15% of people do.

People who know what drives them, know what their passions are, and understand the impacts they have on the people around them, are more effective. That’s why self-awareness is such an important aspect of work.
