⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Feedback from our Satisfied Clients on Critical Thinking Mastery

Our alternative program, Critical Thinking Mastery, teaches the same range of skills, but is geared more towards those in late teens to adulthood. With detailed lessons hosted by Dr. Steve, Critical Thinking has been opened up to any mind that shows curiosity. 

"All of the courses I’ve attended, both in and out of the Army, have stressed the importance to think critically. This is the first time anyone has ever showed me how."

- Col. Ben Connell

"Upon completing the Critical Thinking Institute course, our team learned the thinking process and the importance of thinking more critically about everyday decisions instead of taking the “fast path.” I can now say with confidence that by putting these new thinking skills into practice, I have become a more valuable asset to my team. "

- Mac C. 21

"I’ve taught psychology at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania, and yet this is by far the most effective, accessible, and engaging program for teaching critical thinking that I have ever seen. It’s the first program I’ve seen driven by modern scientific research yet easily accessible to everyone. I wish all of my students had this program before entering my classes, or at least before graduating. I believe this will help everyone in every area of life – it did for me and it has for my students!"

- Andy L., Ph.D.

"It’s hard to put into words just how much the Critical Thinking Institute program has helped me. I’m someone who has always struggled with traditional models of work and traditional models of learning…. But the course CTI teaches is incredibly easy to understand. It’s very straightforward and it teaches the science in a way that’s intuitive. And I feel like ever since I have started incorporating those lessons into my workplace, I have started excelling in a way that I never thought I could before. If anyone is interested in learning how to think and how to see the world differently, and how to be the best and brightest version of yourself that you can be, then I cannot recommend this course enough."

- Andrew W., 25, Forensic Accountant

"Critical Thinking Mastery has made me a better critical thinker than all of my college courses combined. It should be what everyone learns in their first semester. I use its strategies at work every day to solve my clients’ problems. I used to take a backseat in team meetings but now I’m the one who leads the team in understanding the problem and creating solutions. I recommend this course to everyone I know."

- Laura C., 29, Customer Success Manager

"As a Director of Corporate Training and Development for national corporations, I cannot recommend this program enough. I’ve seen so many programs that claimed that they would improve critical thinking, and this is finally one that does it in an innovative way based on real science. I believe this can take anyone’s career to the next level, and I suspect it won’t be long before this is required by many major corporations."

- John B., Director of Corporate Training and Development

"My academic and legal experience adds both scholarly and practical critical thinking experience over 40 years. Simple yet ultimately profound, the CTI application is like a complicated puzzle suddenly coming together."

- Dr. Mark Smith
