Albert Einstein said, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
Great article, but I absolutely love, love, love the Einstein quote. Your gut is a powerful tool that you should use to guide your decision making.

In the recruiting business, Intuition plays a very large role in the decisions that I make. It’s why I ask the questions that I do. It’s why I structure my meetings with candidates the way that I do. It’s why I go off topic on purpose during conversations etc. The list goes on, but here is a HEART and a Science to what I do. The HEART is guided by intuition for sure.
