Last night I started reading a great book by Marcus Gladwell. (His other book The Tipping Point, was also a huge hit with me.) Anyway, in this book he looks at how great leaders make decisions intuitively. He basically argues, in the introduction that when we usually talk about leadership it's in the macro sense, talking about making big decisions. But he argues, that great leaders are effective at making hundreds of small decisions at a gut level, and often, if you probe them as to why they chose a particular thing, they could only describe it as, "it just felt right." Gladwell is a psychologist and so he tend to write from the viewpoint, and it just really charges me up!
