Atlanta, GA—November 12, 2012---Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute recently developed the IBAR Critical Thinking Method (IBAR) in response to corporate employers’ desire to see employees become more effective thinkers in the workplace.  According to St. Olaf Institutional Research & Evaluation website, “Eighty one percent of employers say students should place more emphasis on developing critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills; 63% say they should place more emphasis on developing quantitative reasoning skills.” IBAR is a hybrid critical thinking method influenced by the legal analysis used in American law schools and the qualitative and quantitative research methods used in master’s degree programs within universities, but geared for the lay person.

Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute founder and developer of IBAR Edward Brown says, “Although the Internet was supposed to make individuals smarter, it actually has done the opposite-produced a society of non-thinkers.  If you can begin critically thinking about the world, inside and outside, of your organization in a more enlightened form, you’ll begin creating options for yourself as well as benefits to your company. Typically, to be valuable as an employee, you should be either making or saving the company money. If you are not doing one or the other, you are expendable.  IBAR allows you to do both.”

IBAR will be marketed to corporations and educational facilities as a one (1) day workshop as well as a webinar for online education.

Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute investigates, analyzes, and synthesizes how charismatic leaders think, act, and make decisions about power, productivity, and profitability. Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute was founded in Atlanta in 2002.
