Becoming an Intuitive Decision Maker

by Karen Keller, Ph.D.

I’ve spent time here writing at length about listening to your intuition and the positive changes you can make to your career and those around you. I think by now it’s pretty obvious that I find that to be one of the critical skills in business, yet it’s still so underused and I find people still don’t trust their gut when it comes to making good business decisions. I understand that there’s a lot riding on some of the decisions you make and sometimes saying you “just went with your gut” isn’t enough to satisfy a Board of Directors, but at some point, you really have to pull the trigger and say, “Yes, I feel that this is right.”

You’re a successful woman. You’ve worked hard to get where you are (and where you’re going!) and a good part of that is by learning how to listen to and analyze your intuition.

We should be using our intuition every chance we get, so, then, why aren’t some of us using it? I’ve come up with 3 barriers that prevent us from truly accessing the full potential of our intuition, along with some ways with can overcome those hurdles.

Analyzing Your Gut Instincts

by Karen Keller, Ph.D.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge proponent of listening to your intuition. I frequently write about how critical listening to our gut is for us to find success in our lives. While men may have gut feelings as well, I believe that a sixth sense or a keen intuition is a skill that women have that’s innate and only needs to be recognized and it can become one of the most valuable tools in our arsenal. So what happens if you aren’t really accustomed to listening to your intuition or you feel like you’ve sort of become derailed and your intuition doesn’t make any sense to you anymore? Well, that’s when practice makes perfect. Start asking yourself questions in order to analyze your gut and better learn to follow your natural instincts
