This course summarizes the goals and consequences of critical thinking, as well as items to be aware of when learning how to think critically, including cognitive biases and logical fallacies. The course also covers the value that comes from both individual thinking and group-based thinking, as well as the various disadvantages that come with both territories. Strategic planning is also discussed, specifically scenario planning, and the requisites and consequences of that planning type. Creativity is taught, in terms of what it is, what its consequences are, and how to cultivate it. This course is intended for those who are interested in gaining a basic sense of thinking and developing their cognitive abilities, to better their lives as individuals, and to make them better and stronger employees, team members, and leaders. This course does not provide in-depth analyses regarding critical thinking or creative thinking, nor should it be considered the definitive volume on such topics.
