It is often discussed what is crucial to a company’s success. Leaders and leading experts increasingly declare that the key role a company’s success lies with the employees.
Do you and your employees make optimal use of your cognitive capital?
FLUID AND CRYSTALLIZED INTELLIGENCE
The cognitive capital can be defined by two types of intelligence: fluid and crystallized intelligence. Crystallized intelligence is our ability to execute the crystallized intelligence. This means, how constructive you can use your professional knowledge and experience. Together, the two intelligences give rise to the cognitive capital.
Acquired knowledge + Ability to execute knowledge = Cognitive Capital
THE COGNITIVE FUNCTION
Our fluid intelligence develops at an early age and decreases faster than the crystallized intelligence. Contrary to the fluid intelligence, the crystallized intelligence is not developed as quickly, but on the other hand, it is slowly decreasing with aging. In practice, it means that an employee with a high educational level and seniority can train and optimize their cognitive function, thereby reducing the span between experience and knowledge, and the ability to execute it.
