How to deal with ambiguity
Hi all , I have had a very good career for the past 13 years. I have been told I was a leader, fast learner, confident, I take up projects and complete them etc. Till I joined my current role. Though it is a role I like and enjoy, I have completely lost my confidence. I see increasingly cases where I get ambiguous emails with no clarity or direction. With no specific detail in the task assigned to me. I maybe expected to figure it out on my own. But I am unable to. Usually follow up questions are also maybe purposely ambiguous. Not to mention that my manager send me an email saying I am not doing well. Expecting things outside of my role. And compared me with every single colleague of mine saying they were better than me. This has shattered my confidence. I question everything I am doing. And even the minor stuff like replying to an email. Feels like a mammoth task. Where to begin to build my confidence?
