“I research new ideas very thoroughly, asking a lot of people about their experiences and their thoughts. But on many occasions I have followed my intuition; you can’t make decisions based on numbers and reports alone. It’s important to have the courage to follow through on a project if you truly believe it’s worth pursuing. We all have an intuitive sense of what’s best — follow it! This approach has never let me down.”
— Richard Branson
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
— Steve Jobs
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
— Albert Einstein
“It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It’s my partner.”
— Jonas Salk
The Intuition Starter® for Business public workshop is designed to help you start using your intuition whether for the first time or after a lapse of trust. The practice of working with your intuition is like any skill. You get started and then you still need to practice and apply to get comfortable over time.
Ultimately developing a greater awareness and application of your intuition helps overcome the doubt, uncertainty, distraction that get in the way of you doing even better in your work.
Specifically there are five areas we cover to unlock your intuition and get your started:
By delving into this experience with others in a group situation you gain the extra added benefit of safe validation, practice and feedback.
This workshop will help you address the challenges we face in the way we get in our own way. It will help you create strategies to overcome the distractions and excuses so you can really have fun with work.
Intuition then becomes a way of listening to and actually knowing what our inner voice is telling us to do.
Stepping up to develop and hone your intuition requires commitment.
There are also a few indicators that you are right for this type of development:
This work is about connecting to your own inner wisdom and using this knowledge as a trusted guide in the work you do.
Accessing and applying intuition and wisdom in real and practical ways is the key skill of the future. You will be able to know how to read a situation and then take action based on what is right for you. This is not simply feeling what your gut says. It is far more.
Ultimately you stand up for yourself, gain a sense of your own voice and make a far greater and more meaningful contribution in all your pursuits. Intuition when developed and practiced becomes your edge and your ticket to a much more enjoyable and fruitful working situation.
Over the course of your career you hone the skills needed to operate effectively. You learn from others willing to share their experience, knowledge and wisdom. At some point though you reach a point where listening to your own wisdom and insight serves you and others better. Believing in yourself enough to trust your intuition is an empowering step to take. Now is better than never.
Many well known successful people will eventually cite intuition, gut feel, instinct or just ‘knowing’ as the means to which they made a final decision or went in a certain direction. Consider the contribution of famous people such as Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Jonas Salk, Richard Branson, to name a few. They all speak about the importance of intuition in their decision making and work. Intuition is seen as a valuable resource and business partner in addition to the other tools.
