Remember Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz?
She had a powerful tool all along her journey on the yellow brick road. Her journey taught her how to use those ruby slippers to get back home.
Like Dorothy, we have instinct, gut-reaction, intuition, whatever you want to call it. It does exist. For some, it is a heightened power of observation. For others, they hear nuances when listening to others.
The good news is that we can sharpen these skills and employ them to our benefit within the emotional intelligence arena. Also, coaching calls forth your best self and encourages clarity and meaningful action.
Remember, where you place your focus develops! Stay away from “bright shiny objects” and minutiae.
