Critical thinking does the following:
Enhances your ability to communicate persuasively.
Elevates your skill to collaborate with colleagues.
Improves your ability to search for and apply relevant information.
Sharpens your skill at developing competencies related to your professional endeavors (Ridel, 2015, p.5).
