Podcast of the Week: Sharper Critical Thinking

TL;DR: Make better judgments and decisions through sharper critical thinking skills in this podcast of the week.

One of my favorite podcasts is the How to be Awesome at Your Job podcast, and I love it because it’s always about a different aspect of work improvement. This episode was particularly valuable because it continued a theme that I have been particularly interested in lately – decision making (see: David Allen’s decision map).

Main topics:

  • Slowing down to analyze before making decisions
  • Using root cause analysis (the 5 whys) for problem solving
  • Asking “So what?” seven times to analyze solutions
  • Separating judgment from fact
