Sharp Brains: Brain Fitness and Cognitive Health News

Neuroplasticity, Brain Fitness and Cognitive Health News


Customer Satisfaction Survey/ Tech Museum Awards

We usu­ally spend more time in this blog talk­ing about brain fit­ness sci­ence, pro­grams and trends than talk­ing about peo­ple. Today we are going to change that, since we have been receiv­ing great feed­back from a num­ber of sources. While we still need to improve a lot, we can start to see the results of what we do in our “brain fit­ness cen­ter”. And we couldn’t be hap­pier about the nom­i­na­tion this week of Dr. Elkhonon Gold­berg and myself, as Sharp­Brains cofounders, for The Tech Museum Awards — Tech­nol­ogy Ben­e­fit­ing Human­ity, in the Health category.

I. Anony­mous Feed­back from an online sur­vey of our online store cus­tomers

  • 58% respon­dents are Very Sat­is­fied, and 42% Sat­is­fied, with the prod­ucts and ser­vices they chose. I promise that there were more options (Dis­sat­is­fied, Very Dissatisfied)
  • As a trader, I really need to sus­tain atten­tion for long peri­ods. Your pro­gram (here) has been eye-opening and very helpful.”
  • I LOVE the pro­gram! It is fun, chal­lenges me and gives me hope for improv­ing in the areas where I have lim­i­ta­tions. Staff sup­port & edu­ca­tional infor­ma­tion has been great. It is very impor­tant to be able to talk to some­one about the ques­tions or process prob­lems that we experience…your mem­ber on-line site gives us the oppor­tu­nity to get answers & needed sup­port. Thanks for all you are doing. My hus­band and I love get­ting feed­back about our progress…it is a very pos­i­tive experience!”
  • Keep devel­op­ing pro­grams so when we fin­ish doing the Mind­Fit (here) pro­gram there will be another one to build upon the first! I am impressed at how well your pro­grams are indi­vid­u­al­ized. Good Job to all involved!”
  • Good, I enjoy the games (here) and I can tell a dif­fer­ence in my mem­ory and over­all awareness.”

II. Feed­back about our Stress Man­age­ment for Peak Per­for­mance work­shop (here)

  • Accen­ture: 46 per­cent of sur­vey respon­dents Strongly Agreed that they “gained prac­ti­cal skills and knowl­edge they could start using imme­di­ately.” 69 per­cent Strongly Agreed “fac­ulty was knowl­edge­able and well informed.” – Sur­vey of par­tic­i­pants at Accenture’s Inter­na­tional Women’s Day
  • Cisco Sys­tems: “The Sharp­Brains brain exer­cise work­shop was one of the most enlight­en­ing and fun team-building activ­i­ties we have had. I also love the tools (here) that help me apply the stress man­age­ment skills we were taught” – Man­ager, Cisco Systems

III. Anony­mous Feed­back from from stu­dents in our February-March Exer­cis­ing Our Brains Class at San Fran­cisco State University

  • 84% agree with “I would rec­om­mend this class to others”
  • This was great fun and full of help­ful insights, par­tic­u­larly given some care­giv­ing respon­si­bil­i­ties I have at this time”
  • Very engag­ing class. The instruc­tor knows the infor­ma­tion very well, encour­ages and responds to stu­dent com­ments and ques­tions with care and insight”

Our Exer­cise Your Brain DVD is based on a brief work­shop based on this class. We will announce shortly the details for the Train-the-Trainer pro­gram for instruc­tors inter­ested in teach­ing this class in other locations.
