Participant Feedback


Thinking skills & tools

A thinking skill is determined by the task verb used in the question or activity. E.g., “Discuss this proposal, marketing plan, technique, solution”. ‘Discuss’ is the thinking skill.

Asking a good question is no guarantee that you will receive a good or thoughtful answer. However, if you link an appropriate thinking tool (a template or graphic organiser such as a SWOT Analysis), you are far more likely to receive a better response and develop greater engagement in your training sessions, seminars, workshops and meetings”. E.g., ‘Discuss your role within your organisation by using a SWOT Analysis’. ‘Discuss’ is the thinking skill. The ‘SWOT Analysis’ is the thinking tool.
