Moving from vertical leadership to collaborative leadership in a matrix is a paradigm shift for a lot of leaders and can be daunting. It doesn’t have to be. Each of our leadership training programs takes into consideration not just the skills needed, but the degree of change needed to be effective leading in a two-dimensional matrix organization.
Collaborative Leadership Training Workshops for Matrix Leaders
Lead Without Authority
Our training focuses on developing the expert Matrix Management 2.0™ (MM 2.0™) knowledge, practical skills, and collaborative tools and techniques needed to lead teams without authority and navigate across your organization—skills and tools your matrix leaders will use every day to improve business outcomes.
Leading Teams in a Matrix
Empowerment, Accountability and Decision Making
Leading teams in a matrix requires the ability to build commitment and lead teams in which members do not report to the team leader. To be successful, leaders must lead as empowered adults, accept and apply a new system of accountability, and use collaborative leadership tools and techniques. Participants leave this 1-day program—the first course in our Leading in a Matrix curriculum—with new tools they can use immediately.
Base Camp for Leaders
Shifting to a new way of leading and working in a matrix is an organizational change that requires commitment from the leadership team. The best way to get your leadership team on board, and to build the necessary commitment to action is for individual leaders to participate in the diagnostic process.
Collaborative Solution Definition
Innovation is the process of creating solutions that move customers from a present state to a future state — from “what is” to “what will be.” It’s about improving, inventing or reinventing a product, service or process that is externally or internally focused.
Collaborative Team Development
When members work together to accomplish the goals of a team, performance is accelerated. In this highly interactive workshop, participants learn how to use tools to help them build skills that can be applied immediately to their projects and initiative teams.
Collaborative Meeting Management
As more and more work is done by teams, meetings can take up 50% or more of a person’s time. Leading effective meetings is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity, and good facilitation skills are a core competency for anyone who leads meetings.
