Intuition is the capacity to make decisions and create new ideas without conscious deliberation. You could call it "cognition in flow."
Flow is intuitive action: the optimal experience where action becomes automatic and conscious thought seems to meld together with the action itself.
Both intuition and flow are critical for high functioning in dynamic, fast-paced environments. But there are predictable ways we distort our intuition and block our flow. These can be fixed.
That's what I do.
But before you start thinking that accessing your intuition is taboo the further up the ladder you go, let me tell you a little secret: decision-makers tend to rely more on their intuition when they’re in senior positions, complicated situations, or when deadline pressures eliminate thinking time. In fact, intuitive development is literally the secret weapon CEO’s use for more profits and innovation.
