The need for Mental Training
Mental training like physical training, is a skill you can easily develop and has a host of practical benefits. When you train your memory and your imagination, there will be a remarkable increase in concentration, memory recall and creativity, while simultaneously raising your IQ.
Benefits of training your memory
When properly applied and used to your full extent, BUZAN Memory Techniques allow you to:
- Remember names and faces of the people you meet. The sweetest word in the English Language is the sound of your own name. Remembering the names of the people you meet is vital for business networking and relationship-building.
- Retain information from training sessions. It has been estimated that 80% of annual training budgets are wasted because people forget the information covered during training sessions. Increase the value of training sessions by increasing your memory recall.
- Remember lists – whether it is a to do list, a shopping list, or a list of things employees must do in case of an emergency, these techniques greatly improve their ability to remember items in sequence.
- Use Mind Maps® to aid recall in many situations – including the need to remember the contents of meetings, seminars, books or professional journals
