How many times have you had a compelling hunch that an opportunity is too good to miss or alarm bells have rung and you’ve ignored the feeling and did it anyway, later wishing you had listened to your `gut instinct’ – that sixth-sense?
That’s your intuitive mind at work and this book sets out to explain it in scientific terms to to give the reader the capability to understand and harness this power in business and management. The intuitive mind is a fast and spontaneous and speaks through feelings as opposed to the analytical (conscious) mind, which talks to us using logical and rational thought, and it quite often has the final say. Which is where this book comes in to train the reader how to spot the difference between the two by being more aware to what is more appropriate in a given business and management situation, paying attention to feelings and the hard facts. You’re literally trained to be mentally ambidextrous!
I love this idea and think with practice I can be looking forward to more of those `Eureka/lightbulb’ moments, where I almost feel like there is a higher force, or a hand guiding me to make the right business decisions. An interesting and intellectual read. Kind of like a new age book for the business mind.
