Imagine driving down a street when a child runs out in front of your car. You have a second to decide what to do. Do you swerve right or left? Or do you brake abruptly at the risk of getting hit by the car at the back? Or are you so frozen with fright that you just keep going?
Cognitive Agility can help you make that decision in a way that helps everyone.
We train your mind to rapidly assess situations, detect problems and piece together solutions. There can be no better tool to help you with real-time decision-making at work.
Thrive Skills are an essential set of cognitive, social and behavioral skills to enable our learners to continuously succeed, at every stage of their career.
Cognitive Agility means the ability to learn from experience, using those insights to solve problems creatively and effectively. Professionals can learn to analyze, strategize and brainstorm to comprehend complex ideas to develop robust business plans.
Cognitive performance enables professionals to do more than the bare minimum. It equips them with a mindset that’s solution-driven. Reasoning ability allows people to break down complex problems into manageable chunks. This way, no problem can seem too big to solve. In a high-stakes environment, Cognitive Agility is a must-have Thrive Skill because it keeps one calm under pressure.
Some examples of cognitive performance are storytelling with data, logical reasoning, creative problem-solving, acquiring new knowledge and lifelong learning.
Learning, training and development are some ways to develop Cognitive Agility. Building new skills and abilities helps one improve their performance at work. Receiving feedback and acting on it is another way to enhance cognitive performance.
Harappa programs that focus on Being Resilient as a Thrive Skill are the First Time Manager Program.
