The All Points Team Reflects on Critical Thinking Skills During July Seminar
During our July seminar, the All Points team went above and beyond in a presentation that challenged our office to think more critically.
The team recently gathered to discuss going beyond the obvious and applying critical thinking skills each and every day. Led by Director Bailey Hewitt and featuring insights from President Jamie Izaks, the presentation kicked off with a review of some of the top characteristics in critical thinkers, including objectivity, introspection and humility – reminding the office that clear communication, thoughts and actions, as well as self-reflection, is essential when thinking outside the box.
The presentation also included several sterling examples of critical thinking around the office, plus the press, social media and content that followed as a result. Bailey guided the team through a few situations that asked for bigger and bolder thinking, such as spearheading a creative campaign to better drive brand awareness or finding the perfect pitch for a story lacking a timely hook. Boiling down to the key takeaways, critical thinking calls for challenging the norm, setting aside time to think bigger and to exercise all of your options. Most importantly – never settle.
Our monthly seminars serve to promote ongoing education and refinement of skills, motivating and inspiring our employees through relevant topics and exciting information. As a creative and integrated PR agency, the All Points team boasts an abundance of critical thinkers. The July seminar was a great way to re-stimulate a more creative and critical way of thinking and to encourage new angles for the office to consider.
