Nous Management Styles

Managing by nous is not as peculiar as it may seem. Leaders often report that some of their decisions come from a ‘gut feel” The decision just “felt right”. On the opposite side of the continuum is “paralysis by analysis”. The fear of making the wrong move is so great that all critical decisions are delayed. Opportunities are often lost because of a fear of being wrong and spending too much time procrastinating.

    Course Description

    This program helps participants be more aware of the power of nous. Without nous, human beings would certainly not have progressed as a species. Your facilitator will strip away misperceptions of the power of instinct. Your people will learn the necessity of balancing nous in making decisions.

    Your facilitator will also show participants how “nous” is a fantastic tool to use when you find yourself in an ethical dilemma.

    Nous management is not an alternative to disciplined decision making and the program was designed by a psychologist to help people develop a nous management balance and a nous zone of tolerance.
