Foundations for Cross-Functional Collaboration

This virtual program introduces participants to the basics of leading in any complex organization (Matrix) where collaboration across functions is paramount to success.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what it means to act as an empowered adult
  • Create a relationship map that includes both authority- and non-authority-based relationships
  • Learn how to build relationships based on partnership
  • Understand what true collaboration looks like
  • Acquire tools for identifying stakeholders, mapping relationships, resolving conflicts and more


Leaders with direct reports, team leaders and project leaders


Online, virtual Instructor-led

The course is offered over a 10-week period with five self-guided weeks and five instructor-led virtual sessions. Self-guided weeks use video and the participant workbook to cover a topic.

Each week includes assignments for the individual, learning partners and/or teams.

Like all our training options, the program is highly experiential and requires participants to work through exercises on their own and in teams to practice their new skills.
