Leadership Decision-Making: Embracing Logic and Intuition + DIY Team Activity

Have you ever made a snap decision, only to wonder moments later, “What was I thinking?” Or perhaps you’re more inclined to meticulously gather every detail, fearing the regret of a hasty choice, only to find yourself paralyzed by indecision.

Welcome to the eternal struggle between leading with your head versus leading with your heart. But fear not! There’s a way to find healthy tension between logic and intuition, and it’s crucial for your success.

🌐 DIY Team Activity: Embracing Logic and Intuition

Step 1: Watch the Video Together
  • Gather your team in a comfortable space where everyone can see the screen – or be prepared to share the video on your virtual meeting platform.
  • Watch the video together.
Step 2: Reflect on Personal Bias
  • After watching the video, encourage each team member to reflect on their own tendencies.
  • Have everyone share whether they lean more towards logic or intuition in their decision-making processes.
Step 3: Identify Strengths and Weaknesses
  • Facilitate a conversation about the strengths and weaknesses of both logic/head and intuition/heart.
  • Encourage team members to share examples of when relying solely on logic or intuition led to positive or negative outcomes.
Step 4: Brainstorm Strategies for Healthy Tension
  • Guide the team in brainstorming ways to integrate logic and intuition in their daily work.
  • Discuss practical strategies for seeking input from both logical and intuitive thinkers in team projects and decision-making processes.
Step 5: Commit to Both/And Leadership
  • Wrap up the activity by having each team member share a learning application.
  • Remind the team that by embracing both perspectives, they can unlock their full potential and achieve greater success together.

Have fun!
