'The Intuitive Mind' explores the concept of intuition, both how it works and how to nurture it. Commonly referred to as the "sixth sense," almost everyone has experienced it. This book asks readers to consider intuition from a scientific standpoint and, rather than dismiss it as superstition, incorporate it into our daily lives. In particular, the book argues that business leaders and managers have much to gain by getting in touch with their intuitive sense and using it to be better leaders. Under certain conditions, rational analysis of a situation fails. In those situations, 'The Intuitive Mind' argues that we should all learn to bet on our hunches.
