5 Critical Thinking Styles Modules

5 Different Types

Start with Innovative Thinking to generate ideas before moving on to Conceptual Thinking to look at patterns forming to consider how to piece them together
Step into to Intuitive Thinking to ponder, and listen to your gut instinct to what you sense or perceive to be before you have the actual knowledge or evidence
Next its Critical Thinking to objectively analyse the situation bringing together all the information and evaluating it before using your Implementation Thinking skills to organise ideas in a way they will effectively be carried out

Stimulate your Mind

Reframe a challenge (we’ll provide the challenge) working as part of a team to bring in multiple perspectives, ask powerful questions and challenge assumptions
Focus on the ‘Customer Experience’ Innovation begins with deep emphatic understanding of your customer, and of course you know the steps that follow Innovative Thinking
Then step away from the challenge to get into the habit of stimulating your mind by not thinking about a challenge and letting your mind wander and allowing yourself the luxury of daydreaming

Ponder Possibilities

Use everything that’s gone before (well in the last hour or so) to engage in ‘What If’ Thinking
‘What If’ there’s something you haven’t considered, expand your thinking even more
Finish with ‘Horizon Thinking’ to Infinity and Beyond
