Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
HR is at the fulcrum of implementing AI in a sustainable organization, and this session offers actionable tactics for HR professionals to be the human decision factor in a more automated world. 

With AI on the horizon, no skill is more important in business today than the ability to understand, analyze, and act on information effectively and responsibly. HR professionals who are also savvy, sharp critical thinkers can cut through ambiguity and information overload to quickly zero in on what is really important. This session covers cognitive techniques and critical thinking tools to enhance decision-making under pressure and strengthen your impact. Years of leadership experience do not automatically provide critical thinking skills! Since even highly experienced business leaders sometimes make bad decisions that damage themselves and their organizations, something more than experience must be necessary. We'll use real-life examples to examine why incompetence, bad character, or low intelligence generally aren't to blame when leaders and organizations blunder. We'll learn how HR professionals can become better critical thinkers and add decision-making assets to their toolkit.

Learning Objectives:

  • How AI depends on the human review, auditing and correction found in critical thinking.
  • Critical Thinking theory and practice, with case studies focused on HR Decision Making methods that work in group environments.
  • Group Dynamics that apply to HR issues.
  • Coaching and Mentoring methods to teach others.
