Leading skills for today’s collaborative world.
Managing in today’s complex environment is more challenging than ever. With multi-functional teams, virtual work environments, and dotted-line reporting relationships, the once'neat'n'tidy' hierarchical flowcharts we learned about in Management 101 are being replaced with what looks more like a spider’s web — a matrix, if you will. And all of this makes the 'simple' job of getting things done, well, not so simple.
The trend toward matrix management has created the need for a new leadership skill set, one that helps managers to flex and shift their focus away from a traditional 'command and control' approach to a more fluid and flexible 'influence and collaboration' strategy.
Introducing the Matrix Manager Inventory: Leading in a Collaborative Environment, the timely assessment and training programme that’s designed to help both new and seasoned managers to acquire and develop the ability to flex between 'command and control' and 'influence and collaborate' management.
