Managers and decision-Makers
Brain, excellence and decision-making
The modern working environment is more demanding than ever before. The quantity of data with which managers and employees have to face is growing at a dizzying pace, activity patterns are constantly changing and decision-making must be done quickly, under the highest complexity and uncertainty conditions.
These dramatic changes force managers and employees to demonstrate increasingly growing skills of thought, in order to succeed and withstand the constantly advancing local and global competition and to meet the excellence standards expected of them.
One of the main skills needed in the modern working world is multitasking - the ability to switch constantly between different tasks and perform different tasks simultaneously - answering e-mails, managing subordinates, right distributing of time, contacting people via a variety of platforms, meetings management, goal setting, problem solving, creating and modifying priorities, making decisions, leading projects and many other tasks. Each such task operates different brain areas and requires flexibility and an advanced ability to zigzag and perform passages continuously, while maintaining a high performance and excellence standard in all of them. These passages require from the employee to master high attention and concentration skills and higher-order thinking skills, such as sequential thinking, auditory memory, visual memory, working memory and more.
The abundance of information and stimuli that employees and managers are exposed to, also impair significantly their ability to make decisions, because decision-making depends on the ability to filter information. Information overload tends to cause people to neglect important information, to flood non-relevant information and eventually to make the wrong decision.
Infinity Mind and Coaching for Excellence
Infinity mind's neuro-cognitive training is intended for every person working in a modern work environment. The unique training method uses advanced brain science research insights to improve greatly brain abilities of managers and employees, their decision-making, withstand pressure and concentration capabilities, as well as their prioritization and ability to cope with failures, burden, stress and complex and challenging tasks.
These capabilities, it is known today, can be improved dramatically. The best way to improve them is through the assistance of a neurological phenomenon called "cross-modal influences. This phenomenon is the reason why in many skills practicing one part of the brain is also beneficial for the others.
The need for this training stems from the fact that simple repetition of the same activity (e.g. practicing office tasks) only preserves existing connections and does not develop and strengthen additional capabilities. In the words of Dr. John Ratey, a Harvard University neuro-psychiatrist: "When a man wants to change the neural wiring of some skill, he must engage in a new and unfamiliar activity, but one which is associated with the skill he wants to improve. Simple repetitions on the skill will merely preserve existing connections. To strengthen his creative circle pattern, Albert Einstein played violin and Winston Churchill painted landscapes".
The base of the coaching is sensomotoric and it combines attention and concentration skills with thinking skills in unique patterns, this way stimulate the brain to create connections and sub-structures, used to acquire new skills.
The parallel combination of the motor systems and the high-order systems in the trainee's brain is what makes the neuro-cognitive training so effective.
Enhanced decision making abilities
Improving attention, focus and concentration and increasing the ability to filter out background noise and disturbing thoughts
Expanding multitasking abilities
Growing confidence, expression force and stage presence
Improving passages capabilities, the ability to control the passage and to implement operational flexibility
Training is particular and tailored to the trainer's needs and individual characteristics.
