The new requirements for performance in the new corporate landscape have changed. Managers and executives are evaluated by a new and unprecedented yardstick: they are no longer assessed just by their academic training and technical expertise, but also on how they think, and how well they manage themselves and others. Organizations of today take for granted that employees already have the requisite intellectual ability and technical know-how to perform well.
The focus has now shifted to personal attributes such as professional initiative, interpersonal empathy, environmental adaptability, conversational persuasiveness and team-leadership. These qualities are the hallmarks of a higher order thinking which enables one to exercise better self-control, exhibit a wholesome self-image, display open mindedness, execute fairness and apply creativity at the workplace/
The course focuses on activities which elicit an individual’s higher order thinking and introduces participants to different strata of thought processes, ranging from basic levels of mental operations and task-specific capabilities to loftier levels of conceptual thinking that spurs motivation, challenges values and filters beliefs. This course will provide participants with experiential activities to help them assess their HOTS.
