Navigating Ambiguity Training

Thinka’s ‘Navigate Ambiguity’ Workshop

In an increasingly digital and fast-paced world, we are dealing with complexity and ambiguity like never before. Multiple projects, multiple skill sets, competing demands and the need for constant priority setting ­­– leaders need to be able to both sit in and work through ambiguity to offer clarity to team members. The capacity to reflect and find meaning, before launching into problem solving, is critical to success.

What you’ll explore

  • The role of ambiguity in decision-making
  • Avoiding the ‘quick fix’ and groupthink
  • The role of a reflective practice mindset
  • Effective collaboration for finding clarity
  • Making meaning from different sources

What you’ll apply

  • Ability to sit in ambiguity comfortably
  • Strategies for working through ambiguity
  • A reflective practice mindset
  • Techniques for effective collaboration
  • Ability to make meaning and provide clarity

The Thinka team work hard to understand your desired outcomes and design valuable content to help you get there. The facilitation and delivery of their workshops are as energetic as they are informative and the participants walk away knowing what it is they need to do.

    Our in-person workshops maximise opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – our in-person workshops build a formidable bridge between exploration and application. We have a 10 person minimum for an in person workshop.

    Our virtual workshops breathe fresh life into the online experience with their almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built workshop materials, participants can be assured of a lively, dynamic session that has a distinct bias to action. We have a 6 person minimum for a virtual workshop.
    This audience includes executive leaders who are driving the more visionary and strategic areas of the business. The skills are geared toward building capability in innovation, operationalising strategy and working with ‘middle management’ to cascade information. Leaders must be advanced in their development to truly benefit from working with these skills.

    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
