Critical thinking builds trust and business resilience | Go beyond disruption

3 years ago · 24 min listen

"Be really clear that you're trying to develop SOLUTIONS... as well as being aware of your own biases, your own motivations for challenging".

December's "Human Intelligence" theme concludes with a look at key changes in the field of critical thinking for corporate governance and Boards. Gillian Lees is a Research and Development Specialist in Corporate Governance and Risk-Management. She talks to Harry Domzalski (AICPA & CIMA, UK) about key changes in the field of critical thinking for corporate governance and how it can help company Boards build trust, improve risk-management and create a platform for future success in a changing business world.

Talking points:

  • How to build trust in an environment where it can be easily undermined by technological and cultural failures.

  • The importance of the 'human factor' in corporate governance and decision-making.

  • The value of Critical Thinking and how it helps reach better outcomes as finance professionals further develop their roles as trusted business partners.

  • How to use a Business Model Framework alongside better Critical Thinking skills to identify 'pinch points" which highlight the most relevant questions to ask about your business internally and externally.
