Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

The ability to deal with ambiguity is what separates great leaders from average leaders and is a defining moment for all leaders. This book shows that the key factor for great leadership is the ability to recognize, explore, and profit from ambiguous and chaotic situations and to lead others through them. Drawing upon the latest research, the book shows how to lead others through ambiguity and uncertainty in a manner that creates opportunity, innovation, and competitive advantage.

Great for learning to solve problems December 16, 2006
Reviewer: from New York USA

A well constructed book with lots of interesting stories and anacdotes. This book is a real eye opener which essentially shows you how different leaders solve problems and deal (or not as the case may be) with ambiguity. As I was reading it I could see everything that is wrong in my own company in terms of leadership thinking. I will certainly see ambiguity differently now. Recommended.
