Wouldn’t it be good if your organisation’s leaders could foretell the future and create strategies that ensure the company stays profitable? No one can do that, and no amount of training can teach you to predict the future. We can collect and analyse data, conduct surveys, and evaluate options, but we never know if our chosen options will produce the results we want.
Every day we must live with uncertainty. Ambiguity is a fact of life, ranging in seriousness from a simple decision over where to get lunch, all the way up to big business decisions.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to work with ambiguity, and how to make decisions effectively. Using the full range of learning approaches – including facilitated discussions, group exercises and scenarios, participants will discover how to reduce ambiguity and leave more confident in managing it.
By the end of the session participants will:
- Be able to recognise ambiguity and identify the causes of ambiguous situations
- Be aware of the types of questions they need to ask to understand the bigger picture
- Learn to combine seemingly contradictory ideas
- Know how to choose the decision-making strategy that best fits the situation
- Have a toolkit for dealing with, and minimising, ambiguity
