MP186 : Mindful Speed Reading

7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Classroom


Programme Objective

Prior to the 1920s, people read one word at a time. They read and moved their eyes left to right across the page, absorbing one word at a time. When they finished, they moved to the next sentence. With the deluge of more books and printed materials, reading one word at a time is ineffective.


Today’s daily work involves reading messages, emails, websites, reports, social media, books and magazines. You are loaded with tons of information day by day. To stay in the loop and get your job done, you are pressurized to digest the avalanche of information.

The normal executive reads at an average speed of 250 words per minute. If you learn mindful speed reading techniques, you can double or triple your speed. Mind speed reading engages your brain, eyes, ears and mouth extensively.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the 1-day interactive workshop, you will be able to:

  • Eliminate poor reading habits
  • Install efficient reading habits
  • Double or triple your reading speed
