Intuition

Surely you can recall times when an unexpected insight darted into your awareness, hinting at a direction for you to take. Or, conversely, perhaps you remember when you blamed yourself with: “I knew I shouldn’t have done that; I ran right through the warning signals.” That direct, immediate, holistic inner wisdom is what we identify as intuitive capacity. Everyone has it.

Consider the case of a CEO, who discounted her intuition about an open executive-level position. One candidate, Tom, looked promising on paper and was articulate at the job interview. Even though a little intuitive voice told the CEO that Tom wasn’t a leader, logic convinced her otherwise. After all, what better evidence of leadership was there than Tom’s serving as an army major? But the CEO’s gut turned out to be better attuned than her brain. Fortunately, in time, she found a mutually satisfying match by transferring Tom to a technical staff position.
