Reason and intuition as career tools
I feel that well thought-out career strategies or transitions are best thought through using a combination of reason and intuition. Many businesses are taking on board these concepts and adopting them into training for senior staff. This kind of approach is not just a concept; it works, and is based on neuroscience research. I often say to my career coaching clients, “If you had to decide within the next ten seconds which option to go for, which would it be?” – that’s more a bit of fun of course, but the process of intuition kicks in during that kind of scenario.
Within a career change context, I take people through processes that support this; for example, have you ever tried really getting yourself in a positive frame of mind intentionally?
I suggest you jot down ten things you like about yourself, and then go through some guided meditations and visualisations, which will help no end to free up your intuition, and enable you to make the best career decision possible.
