San Rafael, CA (PressExposure) April 17, 2009 -- Marla Rosner and Associates, a bay area management consulting and training firm is broadening itâs offerings to professionals to include Cogmed Working Memory Training. Cogmed Pro is designed to help professionals sustainably improve focus by strengthening their working memory using a proven software program that can be completed at their desks at home or work. Neuroscientists have called working memory the brainâs search engine because it is what allows us to locate and retrieve information at a momentâs notice. The program enables those who are bogged down by the daily onslaught of information to better manage time, prioritize activities and complete tasks.
âI think there are many thousands of workers who are aware of their own memory challenges in the workplace and are deeply concerned about maintaining their performance â even more so in this economy. Many may not realize that current research has demonstrated that working memory is âplasticâ; like a muscle it can be improved through exercise.â Indicators of working memory deficits include difficulty dealing with more than one task at time, difficulty concentrating under pressure and difficulty remembering clientâs names and numbers after meeting them. (To learn more about working memory, go to aboutworkingmemory.org). âIâve personally been challenged in these areas and was really thrilled to find Cogmed Pro; itâs a research-based, program that has allowed me to take concrete action to enhance my own on-the-job focus and Iâm looking forward to sharing it with clients.â
Only select professionals are qualified by Cogmed to coach program users. Rosner is a Cogmed Qualified Coach, and affiliated with the psychology practice of Dr. David Green, a Cogmed Quality Assurance Provider based in Fairfield, California.
