February 2013

*** Unpacking Intuition - Professor Eugene Sadler-Smith - University of Surrey
How can a fire chief know what do so with a fire before he has properly assessed it? How did an air traffic controller avoid a near certain collision? How do we just know whether someone likes us or not? What is ‘gut feeling’ & how can it be harnessed?
To what extent should business decisions be informed by ‘instincts’ which may seem irrational or impossible to quantify?
What is insight? How do we know when we have it; how can we get more of it & help others to develop it. How is insight linked to ideation & innovation?
Both intuition and insight are major thinking process and skills with a wide application to learning & development in this the second of our Ready State L&TD Webinars

Professor Eugene Sadler-Smith of the University of Surrey a recognised expert researcher & teacher in both areas & will share his thought leadership on these key issues
This webinar will help you examine & probe your understanding of these two key behaviours & integrate and understanding of them into your practice
