FOSTERING COGNITIVE ABILITIES
Simply put, cognition is how a person sees the world and acts in it. Cognitive abilities are brain skills that are needed to carry out any task, from the basic to the most complex. They have more to do with the techniques used to learn, remember, solve problems and focusing rather than actual information. For example, answering a door involves perception (hearing the bell), decision making (whether or not to answer the door), motor skills (turning the knob), language skills (speaking and understanding the language), social skills (interpreting voice tone, body language and responding appropriately).
As you can see, cognitive skills are the very foundation of your success, whether personal or professional. Skills such as understanding a report, observing situations and drawing inference, analyzing problems, brainstorming and evaluating solutions, being unilaterally focused are constantly looked for in an individual.
