It’s critical to keep your thinking skills sharp

Stephanie Spell

Years ago, my college professors were always trying to improve our critical thinking skills through research and writing assignments.

In my career, the ability to objectively evaluate issues in order to develop reasonable thoughts and solutions is routinely expected of me as a leader. And it’s a skill set that needs constant honing.

Here are three ways to keep your critical thinking skills sharp, even if it’s been years since you submitted a research paper:

1. Question your assumptions, especially your biases.

2. Don’t accept information as truth until you investigate it yourself.

3. The most important skill: Question everything!
