    You don’t need to write (or type) it all 

    I’m talking cognitive load coping this week; how to handle all the information we’re exposed to.

    The times when we need to use cognitive load coping the most include training, meetings, conferences, conversations, coaching; whenever people are thinking and talking together and information is shared.

    This information can be:

    🌕 written: a report, presentation or a pack of information; or

    🌕 spoken: the verbal part of a presentation or conversation.

    Plus our own thinking process.

    We need to manage our own cognitive load better than we do.

    Here’s one of the biggest tips I can give you: You don't need to write (or type) everything down. We can write or type w-a-y too much information in an attempt to ‘catch’ or ’trap' what's happening and what's being covered. But some of the information may not be ‘worth’ catching or trapping! Yet we do it. And it makes our cognitive load worse.

    Notice the feeling of wanting or needing to catch and trap so much information. You don’t need it all.

    Are you a catcher or 'trapper' of information? Do you want to catch it all?

    The 2 things for better cognitive load management

    In their prediction for the skills we’d be needing now, by 2020, the Institute for the Future identified Cognitive Load Management in the Top 10.

    It's about how we cope with all that information.

    But it’s not one thing; I see Cognitive Load Management involving 2 capabilities:

    🔹 To discriminate + filter information for importance, and

    🔸To understand how to maximize our cognitive function (using a variety of tools and techniques.)

    The answer is not about having a new app to manage, store or retrieve our own information better. We need to be able to firstly identify what’s important in the information we’re exposed to. And then we need to work with our own thinking, listening and sensemaking capabilities to handle that information better than we currently do.

    I’m helping teams (via 1/2 day workshops) and individuals (via 1:1 skills sessions online) to build skill and change the way they cope with information.

    It could be the best value session of your development program this year - being able to handle information better. What’s that worth to you?

    Lose the list 

    Most of us are drowning in information, slurping from the firehose, not coping. And in that, lists don’t work. Well not for making sense anyway.

    Yes, ok list-lovers, lists are wonderful things, and here’s where and how they work best ... for actions.

    📍To do lists

    📍Shopping lists

    📍Task lists

    The list is the ultimate tool for managing, measuring action.

    ✅ Tick, tick, tick. Done, done, done.

    The BIG but: a list is not the best tool for learning, making sense or connecting dots. The only way you can ‘connect the dots’ on a list is down, down the page. It’s tough then to find lateral, horizontal and reverse/upward connections of information when your eyes and mind are drawn down down down. We can find it harder to discover connections, insights and ideas in a list.

    Love lists? Great, but keep them for actions, to tick off and track progress.

    When it comes to capturing information, making sense, connecting the dots and managing cognitive load, leave lists out of it.

    One or two takeaways - are you joking - that’s all!

    The cost of attending a conference or training program is significant. There’s the registration fee, perhaps an airfare, accommodation, transfers and the cost of time away from your role, the business and your home and family life.

    What’s the ROI, the return on investment you’re going for? Have you thought about it, planned for it?

    Most of us are so burned out and overloaded with information that the best we get from conferences or training are:

    😩A few bent business cards from networking

    😩3 pages of scribbled notes from sessions

    😩Swag and merch - a pen, a few brochures and a stress ball, ironically in the shape of a brain!

    Back at work, we have just a couple of key points that are tough to put into practice. It’s an underrated experience that we can get so much more out of than we currently do.

    'Cognitive load coping' is a skill to learn and apply to achieve a massive ROI on attending a conference or training program.

    → Do you need help with the fuzzy feeling of all that information?

    Send me a message and I'll send a link to three options for learning this new way of working in our world that's overflowing with information.

    Know how you get overloaded 

    I'm posting on cognitive overload this week. We feel overload at conferences or training when we feel 'full', overflowing with information and can't take any more in.

    Here's how it happens:

    🐞G-r-a-d-u-a-l

    This mental overload happens over a long day. You feel like a zombie and the simplest tasks can seem difficult. As the day wears on, you might think the sessions are less interesting or less captivating, but it's usually because we are less able to discriminate and determine what's of value.

    🚀Rapid

    You can get overloaded in a single presentation or meeting; this is over a shorter period of time; too much information and too high a degree of difficulty (yes, like Olympic divers or gymnasts executing a tricky move!)

    Cognitive overload is a common problem in the modern workplace. We're confronted with so much information from so many different sources, and in so many different styles.

    It's not going to fix itself ... we'll need to do something about it. The skill is 'cognitive load coping.'
