The 4-day intensive training will include learning the Matrix Essentials™ to form groups as a Matrix Leadership Network.™ When a group has generated the capacity to function as a living system, evolutionary collaborative leadership can meet today’s ever-changing global demand. The training introduces the Matrix Group Dialogue Process™ as an alternative to conflict. The result: harvesting differences as a path to optimizing collective intelligence, collaboration, innovation, growth, and sustainability.
The Matrix Essentials™ can be applied in any group context, regardless of your role as leader, facilitator or member. This training context is appropriate for consultants, trainers, facilitators, managers, teachers and coaches and other professionals who work in a group context. It is highly experiential and relational.
This training is designed for experienced group facilitators, trainers, consultants, managers, teachers and coaches who work in contexts such as organizational development (both internal and external), HR, communications, management, mediation and conflict resolution; and for those who work with personal, community or leadership development. Graduates from the Essentials for Professionals course will have access to an ongoing professional network and learning community who share their applications and foster personal, professional and community development.
Matrix Communication and Leadership practices that generate the capacity to function as a living system
A member of a training in Chicago in 2000, I am here, standing tall and here to tell you that every moment of my training was a challenge. I found it enlightening, consuming, heart-filled, frustrating, exhilarating, annoying, joyful, terrifying, comforting, irritating, restoring, hysterical, healing and transforming. My experiences ran the gamut of human emotions and experiences, all of which can be summed up in two words: Life Altering. Issues of trust (in self and others), community, tolerance, growth - and more. Yes, ‘life altering‘. Definitely. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. This time, I‘d enter freely vs. kicking and screaming! As one insightful co-participant said: ‘This program could change the world.‘
