Conflict: Underlying Contributors
By Rosie Bunnow
Learners identify factors that contribute to conflict and apply them to conflicts in their own experience.
Being a critical and creative thinker is essential in today’s workplace. It’s also crucial to your career success, regardless of your field or your position. Employers are looking for employees who can creatively problem solve to find answers that are best for both employees and the company.
Learners examine eight different kinds of faulty logic or perception that interfere with critical thinking. They are superstition, ignorance, clustering illusion, false analogies, gambler’s fallacy, irrelevant comparisons, post hoc fallacy, and slippery slope fallacy. In an interactive exercise, learners identify ways to overcome these barriers.
