Making the most of your memory
One-day in-house workshop
Every single thing we do or say involves memory. Our memories make us who we are, and the level of confidence we have in our mental powers is central to the way we approach life.
Many people complain of having a poor memory. But in reality everyone has an infinite capacity to remember, if they only they knew how. In business, a trained memory can provide you with a priceless asset. If you learn to use it effectively, you can approach your work with confidence, communicate successfully, organise your time and carry out every task with purpose and creativity.
Many people have found that Mind Mapping has revitalised their whole approach to thinking and note taking. But more than that, Mind Mapping is a tool for boosting confidence and personal growth.
Is it for me?
This course is for anyone who wants to realise more of their potential for storing and recalling facts and ideas. Its aim is to help you to learn how to improve your memory and how to use Mind Maps for thinking and note- taking.
During this course you will learn:
Why so many people find it hard to think creatively and remember effectively
How the mind works – and how to use this information to create Mind Maps
How to read a Mind Map – identifying key features and characteristics
The main laws of Mind Mapping
The uses and benefits of Mind Maps
How to use Mind Mapping for organising and recalling information
How to use Mind Mapping for planning and creative thinking.
Word Smiths training events are highly interactive events. This means our workshops work best with a group of between 10 and 15 participants – although we can of course deliver the same content in a lecture hall or as one-to-one session.
