Leaders sometimes go with their gut when making a decision. Just make sure yours isn’t the only gut being consulted, suggests Reid Carr, president of Red Door Interactive.
“Making key strategic decisions based solely on how it feels at that moment in time is as dangerous—if not more so—than getting caught up in every minute detail to the point that the opportunity is missed altogether,” Carr says.
Here’s one tactic for pulling in the intuition of others:
Put the break room suggestion box to good use. Some of the best ideas can come from team members struggling with a problem first-hand.
Carr’s company, for example, has a Start, Stop and Keep initiative, which requests feedback from all staff members on internal programs that the company should start, stop or keep doing.
