Working in a matrix brings amazing opportunities for more interesting work, expanding your network and increasing your exposure… and it also has its challenges: increased ambiguity, competing goals, accountability without control and influence without authority become the norm.
Decisions and collaboration can become more complex, often with too many people involved.  In this new program, we want to build the mindset and skillset required to thrive and make the matrix work for you and your teams.
We aim to help managers navigate their way through the matrix. You will discover how the mindset you choose will impact your experience and effectiveness.
We bring attention to the key challenges you are facing and how, by using some practical tools, you overcome these and make the matrix work for you!
