Cognitive Effectiveness and Coaching
Cognitive effectiveness clarifies goals, examines assumptions, discerns hidden values, evaluates evidences, accomplishes actions, and assesses conclusions. More than ever, we must be able to clearly reason through problems and to present arguments in a logical, compelling way or even to reasonably challenge “standard operating procedure” or workflow processes. As adaptability, flexibility and resilience become an emerging skill for success in the modern business world, cognitive effectiveness becomes even more important for leadership and coaching. Managing our mindsets within dynamic conditions and learning to adapt as outside influences continue to transform seemingly static situations into complex environments.
