     NEW conference keynote

    and half-day workshop

    In today's world we have torrents of information coming at us from multi-modes and multiple media channels ... and we simply can't take it all in. Suffering from cognitive overload can become a daily occurrence in today's workplace where we have meetings, stakeholders, information dumps, data and people coming at us from all directions, with all manner of requests, demands, requirements and questions. 

    So where are you at?  

    If you're 'losing it', you're drowning in information, often feeling like you're 'losing the plot' and not sure what the information means, what to do with it or how you could use it. When you've zoned out in a meeting or presentation it's likely you were cognitively overloaded and didn't notice it or know what to do about it. You probably reached for your phone or mobile device, seeking relief, distraction and something 'easier' on the mind. This happens all the time in meetings and workshops. 

    When you're 'missing it', information is like swiss cheese -- there are holes everywhere! You get some chunks of information but miss others. This often means chasing people up trying to fill the gaps or searching and scanning through documents and files trying to find the missing pieces. It's time consuming and doesn't present you well - not to mention how it's highly unproductive.  

    If you're 'reworking it', you're likely to be spending time going over information again, re-reading it, trying to get some space or quiet time to focus and really try to get the clarity you're searching for. But it's unproductive and means you're falling behind in other priorities, work requirements, meetings and deadlines. We simply can't rework and revisit information we're presented with all the time.


    There has to be a better way... and there is.  


    With cognitive load coping tools and techniques, we're able to move away from losing it, missing it and reworking it and move towards more capable ways of dealing with information. 


    Once you're using cognitive load coping tools and techniques, you'll be able to keep up with it -- you'll be 'getting it'. You understand what's being presented or explained -- and that's great. But that might be where it stops. You're not able to do much more than just keep the threads of the information together before you have to dash off to the next meeting or read the next pack and start the absorption process all over again. 

    So let's go further. At the point of 'sharing it' you're now managing your own cognitive load well, getting the information, the context and the details and you're at the point of being able to now help others by sharing information that you've synthesised, distilled or made sense of. Your presentations, communications and collaborations are designed to help others manage their own cognitive load. You're conscious of how you package and present information so that it is easier for people to handle and absorb and doesn't end up making them suffer information overload. This is the goal of 'All over it' - to get you here, at least!

    Ultimately you'll get to 'leading it' where you're able to lead collective sensemaking meetings, insight sessions, conversations and collaborations in ways that help people understand what's going on and what they need to do about it. You help others rise above and sort through the details, make sense of complexity and make decisions on next steps and actions. This is truly brilliant leadership in today's crazy world of information and in the face of the never-ending flow of information.

    You'll be calm, leading with clarity ... all over it!

    More information about the workshop

    This half-day in-house program takes a group of (up to) 15 participants through the experiences of cognitive overload - which is a familiar feeling - and then introduces a series of tools, techniques and methods to help them categorise, chunk, theme, gather, curate and sort information.

    With this capability, cognitive overload becomes a thing of the past; you notice it when it happens, and you know what to do to address it.

    It's a practical workshop!

    New tools, methods and techniques are practiced, applied and finessed so that participants can apply them immediately after the workshop.


    Act now

    Organisations can't expect their teams to magically be able to handle all of the information they're presented with; the organisation needs to do something, to extend abilities, build the capabilities and practicalities of managing information overload.


    If you expect your teams to 'work smarter not harder' then equip them with one of the most productive, time-saving and progressive skills in the modern workplace: Cognitive Load Coping.
