Summary

Train your brain for better decisions, problem solving, and innovation.

Think Smarter: Critical Thinking to Improve Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Skills is the comprehensive guide to training your brain to do more for you. Written by a critical-thinking trainer and coach, the book presents a pragmatic set of tools to apply critical-thinking techniques to everyday business issues. Think Smarter is filled with real-world examples that demonstrate how the tools work in action, in addition to dozens of practice exercises applicable across industries and functions. Think Smarter is a versatile resource for individuals, managers, students, and corporate-training programs.

Thinking is the foundation of everything you do, but we rely largely on automatic thinking to process information, often resulting in misunderstandings and errors. Shifting over to critical thinking means thinking purposefully using a framework and toolset, enabling thought processes that lead to better decisions, faster problem solving, and creative innovation. Think Smarter provides clear, actionable steps toward improving your critical-thinking skills, plus exercises that clarify complex concepts by putting theory into practice. 

Features include:

  • A comprehensive critical-thinking framework
  • Over 25 "tools" to help you think more critically
  • Critical-thinking implementation for functions and activities
  • Examples of the real-world use of each tool

Learn what questions to ask, how to uncover the real problem to solve, and mistakes to avoid. Recognize assumptions your can rely on versus those without merit, and train your brain to tick through your mental toolbox to arrive at more innovative solutions. Critical thinking is the top skill on the wish list in the business world, and sharpening your ability can have profound affects throughout all facets of life. Think Smarter: Critical Thinking to Improve Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Skills provides a road map to more effective and productive thought.

Nice framework

This is a great audiobook on how to approach the decision making process critically. The author obviously has experience and uses it to illustrate the points and processes well.

Time well spent for any manager or decision maker.

The voice for the audio narration is also great. Sounds authoritative and is clear
