Join us November 16th, for the first part in our two part series.
Relationships can’t survive without feedback. Learning, innovation and reaching mission-critical goals all require feedback. Feedback highlights what’s working well and surfaces behaviors that impede partnerships and performance. Yet in our culture most people dread giving or receiving, or even asking for feedback.
In this half-day workshop you’ll learn the first three Matrix Leadership practices that build trust, psychological safety, and the capacity to talk to each other in the open—and why and how they create a strong, resilient foundation for giving feedback. You’ll learn the art and science of giving, receiving and asking for feedback in ways that strengthen both relationships and results. These paradigm-shifting practices have transformed teams in nonprofit, technology, consulting, medical, and educational organizations.

Complex problem-solving and adaptive leadership require full access to differences as resources. Leveraging collective intelligence occurs when the following conditions exist: inclusion of diverse opinions, perspectives, and insights; shifting out of the mindset of debate, either-or and win-lose; and cultivating the capacity to synthesize divergent views and capture emergent ideation and actions.In this half-day workshop ‘Transform Conflict: Mobilize Collective Intelligence’ you’ll learn the first three Matrix Leadership practices that build trust, psychological safety, and the capacity to talk to each other in the open. You will understand why and how they create a strong, resilient foundation to transform conflict and mobilize collective intelligence. You’ll learn the art and science of engaging with differences and multi-perspective-taking as an alternative to power struggles and conflicts that rob teams of their engagement and capacity.
The saying - "walk a mile in someone else's shoes" - the Matrix group allowed me to follow the path of someone else and her ancestors - for hundreds of miles, across oceans, over decades, even centuries, without ever giving up my own shoes, my own ancestors, my own truth.
