The investigation of critical thinking and decision making, this does become obvious that the two are connected together. Critical thinking can take place with out the need to make a decision; one would believe that making a choice should never take place without critical thinking on the decision that requires to be made.
To me critical thinking is a must in the work place, especially for those who are in management. The management decision will affect an employee, or the entire department. You will make the right decision in the work place; critical thinking will make success in the business. Critical thinking does force managers and employees to look at a situation and to weigh all solutions before coming up with a final answer. Now this can take time and it can require input from different individuals with in the organization.
My example of critical thinking in my work place would be a woman who never has time to finish her job. One reason why is she is to busy starting fights among the employees. She will talk about someone and when she is finish with you, about talking about someone else; she will begin to talk about you. It just wasn??™t me that went to the boss with this. It was everyone on my floor; we just could not take it any more. So we set up a meeting with the boss and we begin to unload on him. He told us that he had a feeling it was her, and he thanked us and told everyone that he would take care of it. It was not long before she was called into his office. I do not know exactly what happen, but what ever he did it worked. She has a changed personality. I am just sorry we did not do this a lot sooner. Our work place is now enjoyable for everyone. I am thankful that the management took care of this situation as soon as he did, because everyone was very upset with this woman.
Our boss did solve this problem efficiently and he did it without relying on guesses or assumptions, what ever our boss did he relied on critical thinking this helped to solve our day to day problem with this woman. So our boss did come up with the solution that worked for all of us. I am so happy that we did not use our critical thinking on this lady. But a couple of the employees said let??™s take it to the boss and see what he does with this situation. And he used the right decision on this woman.
But at our jobs we have to use critical thinking daily. I have to prioritize tasks each day which needs me to assess each task for its importance. I know my critical thinking skills were not very good when it came to this woman, but I let angry get a hold of me. I have to make critical thinking all the time, problems come up at work and people come to me for help. I have to make the right decision on exactly how to handle problems.
With critical thinking it helps you to take a step back, and to inspect your thought method and to create them more efficient. As a critical thinker you will ask all the right questions, and you will also challenge assumptions and you will see others view points with clarity. This is truly the only method to consider at work, because this does helps you with the best promising results.
Critical thinking is very important, but it does have benefits for the individual. By having alternatives to choose from this can be mind boggling, critical thinking does give the knowledge and process to help choose the right decision for the situation.
By critical thinking at the work place is essential for the company to be successful. Critical thinking can benefit each individually. By applying critical thinking to the decision this will give the individual knowledge to learn from mistakes. By applying the critical thinking this will bring ease to your every day life as well as the work environment.
