In an increasingly uncertain world your ability to deal effectively with ambiguity is essential. If you want that better job or increased responsibility, the amount of ambiguity you will encounter will increase to a point where you will hit an important threshold. You won't realise there is an ambiguity ceiling till you have gone through it or have confronted it. Unless you find a way of coming to terms with prolonged uncertainty it will adversely effect your decisions and your behaviour. Different ways of thinking and behaving are required above the ambiguity ceiling. In order to master uncertainty you will need an above average repertoire of tools as well as a willingness to reflect and learn. 'Mastering Uncertainty' is packed with pragmatic ideas, insights, experiences and guidelines. Many of the ideas are original and are backed up by practitioner experience and insights from successful executives.
