Webcast Details

Critical Thinking, Judgement & Decision Making skills are always important for leaders and aspiring leaders but especially now, as you may be making unexpected, impactful and difficult decisions at a time of change and ambiguity.

In this Critical Thinking Webinar, the award winning Learning & Development company, ABSTRACT, will take the most complex of subjects and make it simple. With increased responsibility in an ever-changing world, you will discover a toolkit to help you become more naturally empowered to form sound judgement and make good decisions.

In just a few moves, you will be able to cut through the fog and clearly see the problem to solve, ask the right questions and make informed decisions from a simple trilogy of answers, helping you to form better judgements and decisions, both individually and collectively as teams.

We are delighted to have two ABSTRACT directors delivering this webcast:
