Intuition: Women intuition And Business Intuition
Knowing What Intuition Is All About
Intuition means knowing without knowing how you know. It is a hunch or a gut feeling that you get which keeps nagging until you do something about it. It can be more accurate than analysis and it is certainly a lot faster. Intuition is the natural intelligence that allows us to generate innovative ideas, to communicate powerfully and to do so without having to study spreadsheets or gather piles of data.
Intuition is defined by researchers as the brain’s ability to draw on internal and external cues in making rapid, in-the-moment decisions. This often occurs outside of the conscious awareness, intuition relies on the brain’s ability to instantaneously evaluate both internal and external cues, and to make a decision based on what appears to be pure instinct. When people make decisions based on their intuition they often have difficulty explaining why they did it. They just knew what to do, as if a voice was telling them to do something and they heeded its instructions.
It is the skill we all possess that has the ability to guide us to greater business success, greater career satisfaction and more sustainable levels of innovation and service.
Everyone has the natural ability to use their intuition to serve them in powerful ways, in life and in business. It is not a supernatural skill gifted to some but not to others. When we accept this simple yet powerful understanding, we allow our intuitive intelligence to become active, to guide and direct us to outcomes that serve our personal and professional ‘highest good’.
By adopting some of the traits of intuitive business leaders you too can elevate and evolve your business practices to greater levels of success, satisfaction and service.
Women are commonly believed to have stronger intuition than men, but this inclination is often undervalued in our logic-based society. Women are taught at an early age to ignore intuition and trust in the wisdom of others instead. More often they are likely criticized for being too sensitive, too emotional, too dramatic and too illogical when operating off of intuition. This constant barrage of criticism can cloud judgment and make you doubt yourselves and your instincts.
From researches made by Psychologists, the female brain has more neural connections and is more efficient which makes women better at interpreting social phenomena including social cues. In other words, men are hardwired to be more logical and women are hardwired to be more intuitive. Men also have higher spatial intelligence and women are better at big picture thinking.
Women Intuition And Business Intuition
Women are every bit as capable of logical reasoning as men and men are capable of having good intuition. But male and female brains are wired differently and that is not a bad thing. What is bad though is that for years women’s natural inclinations have been consistently devalued by society favoring instead the more logical.
I am of the view that women are intuitively business oriented and that their very make-up puts them at a distinct advantage as business owners. I am also of the view that women throughout history have been exercising their business acumen, sometimes overtly and at other times in cunning ways in order to build an economic base for themselves and their families.
Women’s contribution to economic growth covers a range of sectors including the development of indigenous beauty products, agricultural marketing, the insurance industry, distribution, technology, health services, finance and the professions.
Women come to business with certain intuitive skills. They have a natural tenacity, the will to protect and nurture even the smallest business idea. Women will build their businesses patiently, brick by brick with no overwhelming need to be overly competitive or to feed their egos with ostentatious business success. Just as with the family a woman’s intuition allows her to build her core team and to build loyalty among employees. She will lead by example and work side by side with employees at all levels if necessary.
Taking responsibility is a core indicator of women’s intuition. Without this willingness to take responsibility the human race would have difficulty surviving. Women intuitively seek justice; they do not like unfairness and will commit to a cause even to their own detriment. They will stick to the task and see a process through if it means that truth will be discovered and justice will be done.
By developing and trusting your intuition you can transform the way you run your business, find the simple solutions to your problems and accelerate your decision making.
