Would You Let Your Gut Speak in the Corporate World?

Listen to Your Gut

Hello Leader. Your Gut Is Speaking. Are You Listening?

“I’ve been mandated to shut down the office by next June, after we deliver on our key project this upcoming April”.

All eyes quickly turned my way.  It was as quick as a door slamming shut and I hoped that wasn’t what it would portend.  I knew conventional wisdom would not have approved of what I had just said.  Our HR Generalist’s shocked reaction re-confirmed that.  Instead, I had taken my direction from my gut.

Would my team walk out and make an already terrible project situation disastrous?

Was the Gut Wrong?

Will Lukang graciously encouraged me to write about it at his blog. Please read more.


Leaders in the corporate world are taught to get as much information as possible before making a decision.  What if that information comes from your gut?  What would you do?  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.

And remember…

  1. Congratulations!!!! I’m really glad that you #TakeThisMoment indeed to share your gift through blogging.

    • Will,

      Your encouragement and patient support made the difference. You are, indeed, an enabler!

      Thank you for taking a chance on me as a guest blogger on your own blog — that experience opened up a new world for me (and I suspect, given the coach that you are, you knew it would.)

      Much gratitude,
