Intuition calls upon combined wisdom acquired during a lifetime. It is a speedy, creative and subconscious process that can get to the truth of things without reasoning or analysis. It works sufficiently often to be taken seriously. Coaching an unregulated profession, can deliver successful results through the intuitive approaches of both the coach and the coachee. These approaches carry risks which need to be managed through honest assessment and review. Not using intuition is also risky because intuitive insights are at the root of holistic thinking and innovation. Neuroscientific research provides evidence of the power of subconscious mind and confirms that, whilst intuition may be more available to experienced professionals, varying types of intuitive powers are available to all and capable of development. Readers are invited to share their stories and learning about the use of intuition in coaching
