Corporate Bottom Line
-Can an organization grow smart people?
The simple answer is;- of course we can. If we didn't think training
programs could help people better perform their jobs, why would we
spend billions of dollars a year on corporate training? That said,
skills training is only the first baby step. Having
people develop superior cognitive
skills obviously makes them economically more valuable to the
Today’s challenge for business therefore
is how to redeploy much of the existing training investment in
business, toward foundation personal skills (i.e. basic mental
competence) rather than just teaching job position skills and
Q: Can We Train Brains?
-Firstly. Here are
two key myths that need to be acknowledged.
Myth #1: Intelligence is
basically fixed - a gift, or a genetic endowment that can't be
changed. Your IQ defines your potential in life. And a person who
arrives at young adulthood is about as smart as he or she is ever
going to be.
Truth #: The human brain is
not a "finished product." Neuroscience has now taught us that we are
all "works in progress" and capable of changing / developing our
Myth #2: Brain power is
basically a matter of IQ. The higher your IQ, the more successful
you'll be in life, and the lower your IQ, the less successful you'll
Truth #: Brain power is
only loosely connected with IQ. Brain power is the capacity to learn
how to use one's mental resources - whatever they may be -to best
Currently, more organizations are
flirting with the idea of cognitive-skill training (‘how
we think’ --foundation skills training such as: brainstorming and
creative idea production, information/mind mapping, understanding
thinking styles, memory etc).
The key question about brain exercises
is whether doing them makes you smarter, or just better at doing the
-Recent studies suggest cognitive training by itself only provides a
modest boost to regular daily cognitive activities. Brain
training also doesn’t impart knowledge –in particular knowledge
about yourself and how to continually self-coach yourself to higher
levels of performance and enhance your well-being
Today, the fields of neuroscience and quantum science allow us to go
well beyond just a cognitive approach (just changing how we think)!
-YES! We can
train /change our Brain to drive a new desired future!
Exciting new findings from neuroscience can now be directly
translated into learning and development strategies to make people
smarter and better at what they do.
Neuroplasticity and the "modular mind"
concept provide us a much clearer and better understanding of the
nature of the brain and how to train it.
ongoing breakthrough research in the field of neuroscience provides
us a blueprint how to teach people to easily access their brain and
mind to obtain more sustainable, favorable outcomes.
Most change agents take a costly, time intensive cognitive approach
(via training, traditional coaching or therapy) that only provides
limited results (50% to 60% success rate even when delivered by

enterprise to mobilize all available brain power and to focus that
brain power on achieving its mission.
