Hopefully, you will make many more right decisions than bad ones. Following your intuition is important. More often than not your gut feel is right. Nevertheless, it is also important to have the right decision making framework and not allow over analysis to get in the way.leadership development, leadership business, decision-making

Shelley Row, a strategic partner of DNA Behavior has written a great article on Leadership Decision Theory that addresses this point. Please refer to the 4 Styles of Decision-making, or contact Shelley at shelley@shelleyrow.com

The key to successfully using your intuition is firstly to know you have it and when it is working. You should not be afraid of it but also not be blind to its operation and such not be listening to it properly.? In my experience, the starting point to getting in touch with your intuition is to know who you are at the core and from there recognize your instinctive decision-making style. Then, with that self-knowledge having the capacity to manage your behavior particularly when your emotions are triggered.

Ultimately, it gets down to having trust in yourself. If you want to build more trust in yourself and have greater confidence in your decision-making start by learning your Natural DNA Behavior Style.

I totally agree with you, listening to your intuitive gut feeling gives you accurate indications most of the time. In my view the reason we make not so good decision is when we feel distracted due to circumstances and we could not connect to our inner self to make the right decision. So when we align our selves to our Core Values we can minimize our mistakes.
