ABSTRACT
The article presents information on intuition which is often described by several leaders and managers as gut instinct. According to several researchers, intuition is instant, affective, and non-conscious, and can be understood in terms of a "two minds" model, the analytical and intuitive. The two minds model helps people in solving problems and making decisions through analysis or intuition depending on the situation. However in areas such as management, learning and development practice has been dominated by an analytical model rather than intuition.
