Course description

Your Situation

Increasing complexity and diversity mark today’s world. Information is available abundantly but is difficult to verify. Social norms are watered down and the pace of change is more rapid. Therefore, competencies to deal with ambiguities, contradictions and insecurity are more and more important for leaders.
Ambiguities appear everywhere and in very different forms:
Information that seems to be difficult to grasp or unacceptable to our norms; divergent assessment of facts, e.g. results of studies; contradictory expectations and requirements;
organizational conflicts of objectives, that show up as a fight for the budget;
contradictory behaviors of a person, or cultural conditioned differences, that invoke insecurities.
Ambiguities result from opposing (paradoxical) incentives. Ambiguities that remain unconscious can become incriminating. They appear as discomfort and stress. The consequences are emotional actions, prejudiced evaluations, and over-simplistic solutions.
During the seminar, participants are encouraged to deal with ambiguities with the help of their own examples. The participants learn to distinguish between solvable and unsolvable inconsistencies and they practice a method called “crossing”, which uses ambiguities as a source for new developments.

Target Group

Young leaders, executives and project managers, who have to guide diverse, intercultural and interdisciplinary teams.

Content

The objective is to develop and to extend a competency to handle ambiguities.
Experience and deepen three paths to deal with ambiguity:

    • to enhance the personal level of tolerance towards ambiguities,
    • to reduce ambiguities,
    • to use the potential of ambiguities in a constructive manner

We recommend pre-interviews to ensure a successful seminar for all participants and to set a focal point. During the workshop we will adapt flexibly to the respective case examples of the participants.
