Intuition is the most subtle tool of knowledge that comes even from within it. Intuition does not require external information to its knowledge, it transcends the limitations of the senses and conscious mind using the operating levels of the mind and levels of reality. By developing consciousness (increase lucidity, attention and power of concentration) and keeping the balance of the mind, we may develop intuitive skills, which are so necessary for the transformational and quantum leadership style. The importance and the existence of intuition are scientifically proven by specialists in neuroscience and researches in quantum Physics, too. The paper aims to identify ways / techniques to develop intuition that is lying dormant in each of us. The article highlights the need, role and importance of using intuition, especially in the decision - making process, when empirical evidence and logical reasoning type are not sufficient or logical decision is difficult.
