Welcome to our E-Book on Thinking Skills! Thinking Skills is known to be one of the most important skills to learn today. Why? Well…as I remember, my father and most other people went to work for their manual skills. Today, we go to work for our mental skills. No matter what business or organization you work for or if you are an Entrepreneur or you may be working from home, today you are expected to ‘put on your thinking cap’ and apply a range of thinking skills in whatever you do.
Looking towards the future, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is here and by year 2020 this revolution will have brought us advanced robotics and autonomous transport, artificial intelligence and machine learning, biotechnology and genomics. The question here is ‘Are You Ready To Face It?’ These developments will transform the way we live, and the way we work. Some jobs will disappear, others will grow and jobs that do not even exist today will become common place. What is the certain is that the future workforce will need to align its skillset to keep pace.
This book introduces you to ‘Think for Yourself’ and some of the styles of management thinking and most importantly the change in you to be more positive to perform better at your job. I thank my mother and my grandfather for instilling thinking skills since I was a little girl. So, I humbly share this quality, educational and fun information, personal experiences and what my teachers taught me, to you, our dear readers.
Smart companies need smart thinking people. For a company to grow and move beyond the business barriers to creativity and change, people must transform and breakthrough in their thinking abilities.
Our goal is to challenge the old paradigm and help individuals break out of the box, strengthen their thinking process, build up more powerful thinking skills and apply an analytical and creative mindset in their personal life, as an entrepreneur or in the organization they serve.
