Management with guts

Hibberd, Gillian
June 2010
People Management;6/17/2010, p17
The author discusses the importance for decision-makers to consider trusting their instinct when making a decision. She claims that there is a growing evidence that intuition is more than just a feeling but a brain function that creates less obvious solutions and conclusions by putting together information and experiences. She also cites several books that showed the connection of decision-making and intuition, including "The Wayward Mind," by Guy Claxton and "Social Intelligence," by Daniel Goleman.
