you do with 17 extra days a year?
If you only read for 5 hours a week this is the time you could save
by learning to speed read.
When did you last learn a new technique to improve your reading?
What could you do with the extra time if you doubled or tripled
your reading speed?
Take some time to learn new techniques and improve your efficiency.
This session introduces
some easy techniques for quickly increasing your reading speed.
Most people double or triple their reading speed in the workshop,
some have even quadrupled their reading speed.
Follow up exercises to help improve further after the session are
included in the handout.
To be most effective
it is important that participants all bring along some of their
normal work related reading material, such as papers, minutes, reports
etc totalling about 10 pages. It is also helpful if participants
bring a fiction book they’ve read and a non-fiction book that
they would love to read but haven’t had time.
To increase your
reading speed and improve your decisions on which reading material
session will help participants to:
your initial reading speed;
how you read and what limits your current reading speed;
how to approach paper based and electronic reading material;
and practise a range of techniques for speed reading;
- Learn how to set objectives
and preview a document that will help you to decide which parts
are most important.
