How is your company doing? Are you using all the resources available, including intuition, to help it thrive?
Intuition is an essential component for business success. In this depressed economy it’s important than ever that you play the intuition card. Every possible resource needs to be considered and genuine intuitive information is dead on accurate. Companies that use employees’ gut feelings and minds’ eye, along with accumulated knowledge and experience are the ones that thrive in a depressed economy.
A successful business person is intuitive. It isn’t a choice. It’s a given. Whether the business you are involved in consists of one person or thousands, intuition is a vital ingredient for achievement.
While book knowledge, education, and experience are essential, intuition also helps guide the most talented employers and employees. Poor decisions are made when one follows a business model based on what has worked in the past while ignoring intuitive impressions.
Whose intuition guides a business? Maybe it’s the boss who is guiding a thriving enterprise or perhaps the right people have been hired to keep it on a steady, prosperous course. However, it may be the administrative assistant who is most intuitive. Spotting the most intuitive people and using their intuition is part of a formula for success. It would be a shame to waste these resources merely because that person or those individuals do not ordinarily have a powerful say in business decisions.
If the company is floundering it is important to brainstorm and allow the suggestions and opinions of everyone to emerge because it may be the secretary who usually has to follows an order that has the direct intuitive information to help the business recover and thrive.
Whether struggling or thriving, thought, the bottom line will be better if intuitive information is sought out and considered.
Brainstorming is a good tool for bringing out intuition. Everyone’s input is gathered and recorded right on the spot. This is an easy technique for thinking outside the box, the box being a limited notion of how things must be done. Novel ideas come out because everyone is given permission to add ideas, even if the ideas seem pretty outrageous. From this messy soup of possibilities, ideas emerge which will help grow the business.
Are you more inclined to be an entrepreneur than an employee? If you are currently unemployed or desire to start your own business, your intuition can help guide you to the right business, timing, location, vendors, employees, and everything else.
