The 7 Shifts Needed to Be a Successful Matrix Leader
Leon, the CEO and owner of a growing consulting organization, is working with Lisa, a Matrix Management 2.0™ expert, to resolve the effective matrix leadership challenges he faces running his matrix organization. Their conversation continues from our previous book (Matrix Management Reinvented: Book 1 – The New Game in Town) and this time, the focus is on leadership.
What Leon learns about effective leadership in a matrix
In Book 2, Leon continues to realize that restructuring is not the answer as Lisa walks him through the seven shifts leaders need to make to lead without authority and improve leadership in their matrix organizations.
- He learns that being able to lead without authority is crucial to solving matrix challenges.
- He learns that leaders must be able to lead in both dimensions of the matrix—vertical and horizontal—in order to effect changes their organizations need.
- He learns that leaders and professionals alike must recognize their individual sphere of control and empower each other rather than compete.
- He learns to focus on success and learning rather than on failure and blame.
Bottom line—he learns there is a better way to achieve effective leadership in a matrix
Book 2 – The 7 Shifts Needed to Be a Successful Matrix Leader offers an easy-to-understand introduction to the Matrix Management 2.0 operating system as it applies to leadership.
