INSIGHT Development Online Training Modules

Available for the first time outside of workshops, the INSIGHT Development Program presents a suite of proven training modules designed to improve thinking. 

Using an approachable conversational tone, modules focus on core critical thinking skills and mindset attributes required for success in business, professional and personal life. Scenarios, examples and reflective mental exercises in these modules center on the workplace, but these skills and attributes apply to problems and decisions in all aspects of life.

The INSIGHT Development Program offers employees a positive opportunity to personally focus on self-improvement in skills valued by their employer. It is designed to be used as an independent study but can also be used to supplement existing training programs. Delivered online 24/7, the flexible structure permits employees to work at their own pace determining time on task and progress. Modules do not require specific content knowledge so they are valuable as an onboarding tool for new hires as well as professional development and quality improvement tools for current employees.

Each module requires approximately 30-60 minutes. Modules feature application of targeted skills and mindset attributes to genuine workplace decisions and problems.

INSIGHT Development Program includes three series of modules:

The Big Picture

The first introductory module clarifies what we mean by critical thinking, demonstrates the importance of critical thinking and differentiates between the skills dimension and the mindset dimension of critical thinking.
