The Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech recently hosted a workshop titled “Think Upside Down”. This was held in collaboration with Coach Abdulrahman Al Abdallah and held at Katara Art Center - building 5 at Katara cultural village from 5pm till 8 pm.

This workshop was held to highlight the skills of “Thinking upside down”, which is considered an important thought process where sensory perceptions interact with experience and intelligence to achieve specific objectives. This skill can also be used to get fresh ideas during the problem solving stage, as well as planning, development and dealing with people while doing business or even for self-development.

On this occasion, Reem Al-Suwaidi, General Manager of Bedaya Center said: "The think upside down skill is a tool that can be used to make simple plans. It’s a skill that we use randomly without realising that we are using it, and even without knowing how to use it and yet attain the objectives we set out to achieve. In collaboration with Coach Abdulrahman Al Abdallah, we were able to highlight this skill and how they can be harnessed to elevate the way entrepreneurs think."

During the workshop, Coach Abdulrahman Al Abdallah touched upon several axes such as brain parts, the rules of the mind and perception, the properties of thinking and the obstacles or limitations of thinking. He also discussed about the factors that cause depression, failure and disappointment strategies. He also brought to attention factors related to negative thinking, how to brainstorm ideas and implement them as well as how to turn obstacles & problems into opportunities.
