In this episode Dean talks about:
- The ability of our intuition to see deeper and wider than analytical thinking and history-based facts.
- The stigma of intuition as flaky or invalid that gets in the way of being able to trust it as the invaluable resource it really is.
- How today, our biggest challenge is not education, poverty, political divisiveness, or even global warming, our biggest challenge is getting out of our own way.
- How intuition can deepen your listening, broaden your perspectives, and open up space for creative problem-solving.
- We all have the gift of intuition, we just need to find the courage to trust it.
- Intuition is about seeking truth, and sometimes the truth hurts, but it always serves us.
- Intuition makes executives better listeners, decision-makers, and problem solvers.
- If we can identify trust and have the courage to use our intuition, we can transform our businesses, our lives, and together, maybe even the world.
