Neuroscience, expertise and attention density

“The term attention density is increasingly used to define the amount of attention paid to a particular mental experience over specific time. The greater the concentration on a specific idea or mental experience, the higher the attention density.” (David Rock and Jeffrey Schwartz, “The Neuroscience of Leadership,” Strategy + Business, Summer 2006 at 77).

The article explains that a study of managers found that “a training program alone increased productivity 28%, but the addition of follow-up coaching to the training increased productivity 88%.” (77) Law departments ought to heed this. They ought to couple training with post-training individual guidance.
