Make your intuition work for you

Going to HR:

Human Resources is available when things don’t feel right in the hospital. Do you have a bad feeling about one of the nurses? Has someone been treating you unfairly or do you feel threatened by your current work environment? Take a trip to HR.

But how do you know when a gut feeling is warranted and not just indigestion? Your body’s physical messages should be “dear and neutral,” say researchers. And they caution never to act on impulse, as if you’re feeling particularly emotional, it could be fear and not intuition.

An exception to this would be in times of sexual or verbal harassment. If this is happening to you, be sure to contact your HR person after the first offense. If someone is targeting you, they’re most certainly targeting others who may not know (or be brave enough) to speak up.
