YOU ARE INTUITIVE
Intuition is your natural ability to “know” that which you don’t know. And like with all abilities practice and experience will help develop it. However, most people have learnt not to trust this valuable resource and therefor may at first find it challenging to rely on something which they cannot fully explain and which does not fit our conventional models.
UNIQUE ADVANTAGE FOR COMPANIES AND MANAGERS
Today a number of the world’s most progressive and successful companies like Apple, Virgin and Norwegian all have discovered the value of expanding the way they think and including intuition when searching for solutions and making decisions. When combined with analytic thinking, this is recognized as one of the most effective ways of identifying new business opportunities, avoiding costly mistakes and creating a motivated organization.
EXPERTS AND RESEARCH CONFIRM
Intuition is recognized as a valuable resource by leading teachers and consultants – as well as by research. Tom Peters, author of the management classic In Search of Excellence, sums it up like this “Intuition is a practical way to make tough decisions. The crazier the times are, the more important it is for leaders to develop and to trust their intuition.” And research shows that managers who have learnt to do this achieve superior profitability.
INTUITION AND LOGIC
Listening to your intuition does not mean putting logic aside, but rather to let intuition supplement your analytic thinking. If they are in harmony with each other, fine. But if your intuition says “no” to a move which rationally looks ok it will probably serve you to reconsider.
YOU CAN DO IT
Begin to use and develop your intuitive abilities today. Start by turning your attention inwards, like Thomas Edison, one of the greatest intuitive geniuses of all time, who expressed it like this – “I listen from within”.
