In decision-making, trust your gut IF you're an expert in the relevant subject area

In decision-making, trust your gut IF you're an expert in the relevant subject area | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Trust your gut -- as long as you're an expert. So says a new study. How expert someone is within a particular domain has a positive impact on their ability to make an accurate gut decision," said Rice's Erik Dane, lead author of a study published last month in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. However, he added, "Even if you're an expert, intuitive decision-making is better for some types of tasks than others. Tasks that can be solved through predetermined steps, like math problems, are not as conducive to intuitive decision-making as less-structured tasks, which may include certain strategic or human resource management problems."

Nice take on decision making - but making a decision and learning from it right or wrong strikes me as the key thing.

Gina Stepp's curator insight, December 16, 2012 2:04 AM

This relates to the fact that the more you practice  something, the more it becomes part of your automatic reference. Don't trust your gut if you haven't educated your gut.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 16, 2012 7:39 AM

(From the article): "Once again, the researchers found that intuition was more effective for those with high expertise. In the intuition condition, participants with high expertise demonstrated higher task performance. In the analysis condition, those with high expertise performed no better than those with low expertise."

Anne Egros's curator insight, December 16, 2012 2:39 PM

Sometimes some decisions are made with no logic nor intuition but just by luck. If your decision was right you can always say it was intuition while in fact is is like playing red or black at the roulette each time you have 50% chances to win.

10 Marks of Learn-it-all Leaders

10 Marks of Learn-it-all Leaders | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
There’s little hope for know-it-all leaders. Too many leaders flap their tongues while their ears nap and their brains slumber.

When was the last time you asked, “Tell me what you think?” Perhaps, by the time you’re done telling what you think, there’s no time for asking what they think.

Your open mouth closes the mouths of others.

Anne Egros's curator insight, December 13, 2012 12:43 PM

The last point of this article (http://www.entrepreneur.com/blog/225225)  "Keep Learning", is for me the most important factor to become an expert in your field.

 

For organizing and sharing interesting articles I like Scoop.it. To discuss new topics and ideas with other experts I like Linkedin groups. I am not using yet the new Google+ feature, "communities",  but it seems something interesting.

 

If you have started a Google + community, please share your experience or wait for the next post after I learn how to use this new tool.

 

For organizing ideas and actually learn, I like to write in my blog. Learning by teaching is one of my favorite way to learn. I can't explain clearly something if I did not understand it fully.


What about you ? What do you do to be known as an expert in your industry ?

 

 

donhornsby's curator insight, December 14, 2012 6:25 AM

(From the article): "Becoming an authority in your industry can be a great way to promote your business and help you better serve your clients. It takes a consistent dose of education and risk, but the rewards can be well worth the effort."


Excellent suggestions contained in the article.

When you’re a whiner, you’re a loser

When you’re a whiner, you’re a loser | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Brandon Jacobs’ recent outbursts on social media have played out like a painful rerun of episodes starring NFL divas in their own tragic sitcoms. It’s completely possible Jacobs has a legitimate gripe, but it’s obvious he chose to handle it the worst way. Ask yourself what would happen if you announced to everyone at work the equivalent of what Jacobs announced on social media. Now you know why the New York Giants decided to let him walk away in the offseason despite his role in two Super Bowls and a team record 50 rushing touchdowns.

San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis had plenty of public outbursts under the previous 49ers’ regime led by Mike Singletary, who didn’t hesitate to discipline him for it. Since then he’s been a model teammate and significant contributor with Alex Smith at quarterback. And now with Colin Kaepernick under center Davis has largely vanished over San Francisco’s last three games, totaling three catches for 19 yards and zero touchdowns. I doubt Davis runs a 4.3 second 40-yard dash so he can run block all day, but he’s kept quiet about it. It’s a little something called professionalism. Ask Vernon about it, Brandon, he learned the hard way.

It’s also a simple math problem. One person isn’t more important than the other 52 in uniform. Brandon + Goodbye = Problem solved. No respect, no money, no team. Jacobs knew exactly what he was doing, and now he just needs someone else to blame.
