Build Your Rational Thinking Skills

Ute Fiedler
Instructor: Ute Fiedler

Whenever you find yourself feeling stressed and caught in a negative thinking loop, you have been told to think positively. But when you try to think positively, the negative thoughts just flood back in.

The answer is to use the ABC’s of Rational Thinking. This well-researched technique will give you control over your responses when being faced with too much work and not enough time. You will learn new techniques to handle difficult behaviour, misunderstandings, and conflict. You will be able to develop a work/life balance that keeps you healthy and thriving.

After this workshop, you will be able to…

• Use the ABC’s of Rational Thinking with ease
• Have a better understanding of yourself and others
• Turn your worst difficulties into challenge and opportunity
• Take control back from those who upset you
• Develop the power to choose your response
• Halt re-living bad situations and mistakes from the past
• Stop imagining “worst-case scenarios” in your future
• Cope calmly with difficulties
• Achieve a comfortable balance between your work and the rest of your life
• Accept that both positive and negative thinking have their value, but rational thinking is your path to continuous improvement
