Have you ever seen those puzzles that ask you to spot the rabbits when all you can see are two ducks, or vice-versa? Your brain freezes till you figure out that you need to zoom out of the picture to make sense of it.
Understanding ambiguous information or an ambiguous situation is much like that. You need to zoom out, get all the information available and then consider the big picture. This course will teach you how to overcome vagueness by considering all details before taking action and how to make smart decisions despite uncertainty. Erase ambiguity, prioritize clarity!

Considering the details and the big picture are essential to dealing with ambiguity.
Some examples of handling ambiguity are acquiring as much information on a subject as possible before jumping to conclusions, communicating with stakeholders for strategy management or listening to all parties involved in a conflict. These initiatives help clear any ambiguity surrounding a situation.
The ability to deal with ambiguity requires patience, level-headedness and a drive to be better at what one does. Being a professional takes effort. The ability to deal with ambiguities requires investing the right amount of time in understanding the problem or situation before reaching a conclusion.
