Critical thinking barriers & plateaus

Barriers to Critical Thinking: 3 Plateaus Where People Get Stuck

December 3, 2019

Critical thinking is incredibly important but few know how to make it a great strength. To stand out for critical thinking, you must make your way up and through the four phases of critical thinking, yet many run into three barriers to critical thinking. The most common barriers exist at the transitions between phases, creating plateaus that cause people to get off the ascent to greater thinking and remain where they are. Some people remain their whole careers in these critical thinking plateaus.

In this video, we describe these plateaus and preview some of the research that can help you or your team overcome them and continue your ascent to exceptional thinking.

We went into more detail on how to overcome these barriers to critical thinking in our recent free online intensive training, for which you can sign up to watch the recording.
