Publisher Comments:

In a changing world, what makes the difference between struggling to keep up or being ready and able to navigate whatever comes along? The answer is quite simple: the modern world requires the core thinking abilities of critical, creative and systems thinking. However, despite the increasing need for refined, multifaceted thinking most people are still getting by on the what to think approach of reciting facts, abiding by the status quo and following protocol. This way of thinking may have been ingrained since childhood but we have to rethink traditional thinking itself. The Thinking Effect, by Mike Vaughan, addresses the fundamental need in effective learning – teaching how to think by a process of learning, trying, reflecting and trying again. It is the type of thinking that helps an individual understand cause and effect, short- and long-term delay effects, unintended consequences and interdependencies of systems. The Thinking Effect moves beyond the concept of how to think to its development and delivery. The book explains how to evolve and improve thinking, how to create learning solutions, individual practices and real-world applications and how to resist complacency and sustain the thinking effect.

Synopsis:

Businesses need workers who know how to think, not what to think. This book shows how to train them.
