How’s your intuition?

Intuition is one of the tools I use as a coach to help my clients drive insight and move forward towards their goals. Yet, my intuition is only powerful if I share it with my client who then has the chance to validate it (or not). This process of validating rarely happens when it comes to interactions with others, however, if you look at your typical work environment. Most of us make our assumptions about others without ever checking these agains the ‘facts’. Listening to your gut is powerful and important. Yet, intuition also often is plain wrong, as this video a client sent me illustrates (thanks J!).

Getting the facts is often easier than we think – it can be as simple as asking a few pointed questions. If you want to read up more on intuition, consider picking up David Myer’s read ‘Intuition: Its Powers and Perils‘.
