Excerpt- Intuition vs. Insight

“…Let me show you the difference between making decisions using gut feeling and insight. Gary Klein, who has done a great deal of research on decision-making, said: “Intuition is the use of patterns you have already learned, whereas insight is the discovery of new patterns.” While intuition is about the past, insight is about the now. It is wise not to over-depend on past experience or what one sees now. What happened in the past shouldn’t preoccupy us to the point of missing golden opportunities now and in the future.

We should keep the balance. If you’re over-dependent on your gut feeling, you trust your past rather than your present and future. You may be unwilling to consider new info and perspectives. Thus, your decisions are always predictable and based on what has worked for you in the past. If you’re over-dependent on insight, you’re missing lots of historical perspectives and what has been already tested and has worked. You may be repeating the same mistakes again and again in your decisions…” Antidote 6, Make Timely Decisions, p. 134.

Excerpt- Decision-based on Intuition- Jeff Bezos

“…Realize that the more leaders advance in their leadership and therefore make tough and consequential decisions without enough data and time, the more they rely on their gut feeling. The founder and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, once said, “I believe in the power of wandering. All of my best decisions in business and in life have been made with heart, intuition, guts, not analysis.” Of course, using one’s gut feeling as a source of decision doesn’t mean the leader wings it based on some unrecognized voice within. Only naive leaders heed such an inner voice. Experienced leaders have already trained themselves on how to listen to their intelligent self, which uses the vast database that has been built for years.…” Antidote 6, Make Timely Decisions, p. 132

Excerpt- Make Timely Decisions

“…Depending on whether you’re a CEO at the top of the food chain, a manager in the middle, or a new supervisor, the decisions you have to make will be different in scope and consequences. But regardless of where you are in the hierarchy, you have to make timely decisions, and this requires developing the right attitude, having some tools, and developing specific competencies. 

As a first-timer, your true leadership will be tested when you are confronted with choices, and you have to make quick decisions without having enough info or time. Ready or not, you must make decisions from the get-go. The question, of course, is whether you are making timely decisions. Anybody can make the right decision if they have comprehensive data and enough time to think, reflect, gather info and consult others. The good news is that this chapter will treat you of indecisiveness. Wherever you may be on the decision-making continuum, it will take you to the next level…” Antidote 6, Make Timely Decisions, p. 125.

Excerpt- Antidote 5- Deliver Results

…By now, you might already know and even own your place. You might have already begun building your team speedily. You might also already be working on your communication. These all deserve your efforts if and only if you deliver quick results. Leadership, at the end of the day, is about delivering results.

Even though a leader must take care of the people and build processes and systems, her success is measured based on whether she has taken the team from point A to point B. The measuring stick is whether she has something to show; whether the team has met its goal or not. In the short term, stakeholders (shareholders) may be okay if a first-timer leader spends time doing the background work we have covered in the previous four chapters. After a while, though, they will expect tangible results.

If they haven’t told you yet, the people who promoted you expect you to deliver. The question is how many weeks or months they will be willing to give you before they start to question whether or not you are the right person for the position. That is why you must make delivering results your top priority. Yes, there may be a gazillion things you need to do in the first couple of weeks and months until you can ‘stand on your two feet.’ But these efforts must lead to some form of results…” Antidote 5, Deliver Results, p. 107 – 108.
