Sloppy thinking is something we’ve all been “diagnosed” with at some point in our lives. We get distracted, forget to ask the right questions, ignore the data, shoot from the hip and jump to conclusions.

Yes, to err is human, but that doesn't make it right. Sloppy thinking prevents issues from being resolved right the first time. Furthermore, failure to pay attention to relevant data is likely to produce consequences that may be worse than the issue that triggered the sloppy reaction in the first place.

To see what we mean, please watch “Diagnosis: Sloppy Thinking. Cure: Kepner-Tregoe Clear Thinking -- Episode 1” below - written, produced, directed and edited by KT Consultant Gijs Verrest - for a humorous take on sloppy thinking. Gijs won KT’s 1st employee video contest with this pilot episode!

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms described above, please seek medical attention immediately from a professional who thinks more clearly than Dr. Smith. Your local Kepner-Tregoe Consultant is always available for a healthy dose of KT Clear Thinking.
