"... mental agility entails a readiness and capacity to change our manner of thinking, or of approaching a situation, endeavor, or problem, without losing our "balance" in terms of our broader goals and aims... One also needs endurance and aerobic capacity." Cognitive Neuroscientist Wilma Koutstaal (of the University of Minnesota), The Agile Mind
Our brains feel more clear and are primed to learn depending upon what we do with our bodies (and we're not talking merely about drinking coffee or exercising). Our minds are far more capable once we understand how to use our brains and minds in organized and disciplined ways. Our minds are so much faster once we memorize and recall information in a systematic fashion. Our minds are far more creative and perceptive once we begin to use our brains in certain ways.
Cognitive Training from ECRIT
ECRIT provides training that will teach students and employees how to use their brains and their minds best. ECRIT provides training in seminar or small group formats. The best way to apply cognitive training, though, is with a coach.
"Agile thinking involves ways of representing and processing information and knowledge that is flexibly, creatively, and adaptively attuned to changing circumstances and goals. It is thinking to promote and sustain both longterm and provisional plans and projects in the face of dynamic and more stable environments, in the midst of uncertainty and ambiguity, and for real-life risks and rewards." Cognitive Scientist Wilma Koutstaal of the University of Minnesota, Agile Thinking
