Metathinking: The New Critical Thinking

Metathinking is a game-changing approach to critical thinking for all decision makers. The Metathinking approach developed by Dr. Groves spurs a dynamic analysis of our own reasoning processes, exposing hidden factors that influence our thinking, boosting the quality of higher-order thinking and problem solving for individuals and teams.  The audience will be taught to recognize assumptions that corrupt their reasoning processes and methods that unveil subconscious associations that shape their interpretations.  The session will introduce new ways to interact with evolving cognitive technologies and artificial intelligence.  Attendees will leave the session with new abilities to tap cognitive networks that allow them to discover defining issues, solve complex problems and make decisions with clarity and confidence. 

Major Subjects:

  • The Mind-lens approach to understanding cognition
  • Root cause analysis and problem-solving
  • Assessing reliability and validity of evidence
  • Critical analysis of decision tools
  • Uncovering implicit bias
  • The differences between logic and insight
  • A new brand of professional skepticism
