In this episode, Dean Newlund and Rebecca Pearson discuss:

  • Using intuition to interpret information and data to back it up.
  • Focusing and investing in people’s strengths and talents to foster and encourage their intuition.
  • Following your passions and embracing your strengths to build your intuition.
  • Intuition is informed by our academics and experiences.
  • Some companies may limit intuition, as it may pose risks of not having a concrete or known outcome the way data-driven projects may. 
  • Tap into the diversity of thought through the work environment by fostering creativity and collaboration.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Intuition isn’t always correct, you need to think through and be prepared for the consequences.
  • Data makes the acceptance of information more respected, but sometimes you need to take a leap of faith.
  • Have self-awareness, strive to improve upon yourself, encourage people to know themselves, apply what they know, encourage diversity of thought,  and adapt for different styles of people. 
  • Create psychological safety, trust, a level of authenticity, and then embrace your intuition.
  • Confidence is built through success. Be less concerned about what other people’s perception of you is. Embrace the accountability for making the decision whether the outcome is good or bad. 
     

“I firmly believe intuition is built off of one’s experience.” —  Rebecca Pearson
