Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably why so few engage in it. ~Henry Ford

This quote by Henry Ford still rings true to this day. As humans, we all think, but our thinking often lacks in depth and critical reflection. We learn to come up with one right answer and not to consider other options. We tend to jump on the first idea instead of taking the time to discover if the problem we are trying to solve is actually the real problem. We blame time, lack of resources and our already overwhelming workload. However, learning to think more critically can actually save time, money and provide new, more efficient ways of doing things. Participants will take part in activities that will demonstrate how simple it can be to grow this skill and make critical thinking a part of your daily life.
