Intuition works well at work…
Whether it’s around hiring, sales or development, every situation can be improved by a felt connection to a bigger part of yourself. It helps people become their best both personally and professionally, which creates a great work environment. Intuition broadens perspective and allows ideas, a space to develop into the unexpectedly perfect solution.
When working with companies looking to expand, move or sell:
I have intuitively seen locations, advised on price, longevity, contract issues, important questions to ask and people to watch out for — all with astonishing accuracy, even to me, as I'm given almost no details to work with.
One example is a start-up company that needed more space and had a small budget. On a call with the CEO, I began describing locations within the company's target areas. I described several buildings and spaces, listing some pros and cons of each. The team visited two of the promising locations I described. I shared information on the two buildings that most interested them. They asked questions from the information I received (one was that a rowdy group would be moving next door) that confirmed some cons they weren't comfortable with compromising. The third building I saw the CEO said didn't exist.
Then I got a 'you-won’t-believe-this call'. The building I described went up for rent within the week and there were 2 spaces available. One larger than the other. I helped the CEO feel which space they needed, "would they continue to grow enough to need the bigger space?" The answer was yes, they needed bigger, but it was a bit out of budget. I saw that the manager would welcome a lower price with a longer lease and it happened. It's been several years now and that company easily grew into the space and when they thought they'd need to move again another floor became available. Using intuition has long term unforeseen benefits.
