Characteristics of a transformational leader are providing vision and direction, gains trust from others, communicates expectations and critical purposes, motivate and influence rationality, advises, and guides individuals (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 383). I tend to be creative with the task given to me and I have the ability to think outside the box. Although I have a high attention to detail, my critical thinking and problem-solving skills make me an effective leader amongst my peers. “[T]ransformational leaders also show greater agreement among top managers about the organization’s goals, which yields superior organizational performance” (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 383). According to a study conducted by Gong, Huang, and Farh (2009), employees who work under transformational leaders had more self-confidence in their ability to be more creative and perform higher (pgs.
Back to School as an Adult Charity M. Gill Bryant and Stratton College ENGL101: Applied Writing #2 Process Analysis Mrs. Carolyn Spinner October 2, 2011 The thought process that anyone goes through in deciding to go back to college after the high school or college age requires a look back in time, a steady gaze towards the future and a serious reality check. There are a lot of good reasons to increase your education, such as having a more fulfilling career, being able to provide for loved ones and having the respect of others who have earned a college degree. It sounds a little frightening to the average adult who has children, job and life experiences outside of the school environment to embark on a journey to education especially

Being able to attend college online, communicating with my long distance relatives and taking care of all my finances online are just a few ways technology has simplified my life. Technology has definitely changed the way students learn, how teachers teach and whether or not either one has to step foot into a classroom. In my case, getting into a classroom became almost impossible. My boss commutes back and forth from New York City every day. Most days she would come home on time, but it always seemed that, on days, she knew I had to get to class; she would either miss her train or take a later train home.
Critical Thinking in the Decision Making Process Introduction Making decisions is something each of us is faced with on a daily basis and regardless of the complexity of the decision; we must establish a method that will produce a positive outcome. Before a decision can be made a problem must be identified and addressed. Applying critical thinking skills to a problem set allows a person to step through a process towards making a well informed decision. Paul and Elder define critical thinking as “the art of thinking about thinking while thinking in order to make thinking better. It involves three interwoven phases: it analyzes thinking, it evaluates thinking, and it improves thinking” (p. xvii).
Thinking Styles Affect on Critical Thinking Processes and Decision Making This paper will provide an analysis of the creative, optimistic, open question, and inductive thinking styles. Additionally, styles will be compared and contrasted, and the effects on the critical thinking process will be discussed. Finally, the paper will provide workplace examples that highlight each of the four different thinking styles. Creative Thinking Style Creative thinking is the process that involves problem solving and introducing new ideas. It leads to new concepts or new ways of carrying out existing ideas.
A goal is what a person is trying to accomplish (DuBrin, 2004). In order to direct ourselves we set goals that are clear and understandable, challenging, and achievable. Feedback is an important element in goal setting. We need feedback so we can determine whether we are succeeding or whether we need to change our goals and/or direction. We find feedback very encouraging and motivating.
Importance Critical thinking is an important element of all professional fields and academic disciplines (by referencing their respective sets of permissible questions, evidence sources, criteria, etc.). Within the framework of scientific skepticism, the process of critical thinking involves the careful acquisition and interpretation of information and use of it to reach a well-justified conclusion. The concepts and principles of critical thinking can be applied to any context or case but only by reflecting upon the nature of that application. Critical thinking forms, therefore, a system of related, and overlapping, modes of thought such as anthropological thinking, sociological thinking, historical thinking, political thinking, psychological thinking, philosophical thinking, mathematical thinking, chemical thinking, biological thinking, ecological thinking, legal thinking, ethical thinking, musical thinking, thinking like a painter, sculptor, engineer, business person, etc. In other words, though critical thinking principles are universal, their application to disciplines requires a process of reflective contextualization.
