Effective Thinking Skills

Effective Thinking Skills

First Edition
  • Richard Nelson-Jones - Fellow of the British Psychological Society and of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

January 1996 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`Richard Nelson-Jones' analysis of self-management and decision-making is, quite simply, excellent… I recommend this book very highly indeed' - Australian Institute of Management Review

This book is for people who wish to think more effectively about their personal problems and business decisions. It shows how happiness and professional success can be achieved through effective personal decision-making. It will prove particularly useful for those in management situations - at whatever level - and those who wish to reap the personal benefits of clear thinking.

Choosing How You Think
Learning How Not To Think
Owning Responsibility for Choosing
Using Self-Talk
Choosing Your Personal Rules
Choosing How You Perceive
Attributing Cause
Predicting and Creating Your Future
Visualizing With Your Mind's Eye
Making Decisions
Preventing and Managing Problems
The Courage To Think For Yourself

A great book to use for tutorials, I use elements of this book to support my own thinking skills and to help develop those of learners. Especially useful for BTEC level 3/A Level courses whereby learners attend placement and need to keep a reflective journal. The effective tasks in this book provide a new approach to thinking and learning skills.
