Critical thinking skills

Critical thinking skills is a process through which an individual is intellectually
disciplined to skillfully and actively apply, conceptualize, analyze, evaluate and synthesize
relative data that is gained from observing, life experiences, reflection, communication as
well as reasoning in a bid so they can make informed decisions as pertains to a predicament
that is existent at the time. Once this has been achieved, the individual then undertakes on an
action plan that can dissolve or eradicate the predicament entirely. Critical thinking skill

whether it relates to finding a topic for an essay or in solving problems in real life.

all situations thereby yielding efficacious results. Communication skills involve the transfer

how effectively these modes of communication achieve the mandate accorded to them.
Impeccable communication skills are necessary as they m...
