Matrix Facilitator Training

This 3 phase, 12 day training is intended to teach graduates of the Matrix Comprehensive Training or the Matrix Essentials for Professionals, to facilitate groups in the Matrix model. This training is intended both as a refresher course to learn to facilitate the emerging Matrix model, and as an experiential, skill-building practicum in group facilitation. It also provides a strong, transformative container for continued personal and professional integration.

Who Should Participate

Individuals who have completed either the full Matrix Comprehensive Training or the Matrix Essentials for Professionals with significant experience in small group facilitation; and who want to deepen their practice of Matrix Leadership. The training is required for anyone who wants to co-facilitate future Matrix groups, workshops or trainings for Matrix Leadership or for those who wish to develop further skills in applying Matrix principles and practices in their own contexts.

Format

Each phase is primarily a practicum in facilitation skills and understanding the Matrix model of group leadership. The theoretical foundation includes tracking the influence of group field dynamics and shifting paradigms from separation to interconnectedness. The process through 3 phases supports an extraordinary integration of personal and professional devlopment.

  • Phase I: The Stage & Process of Formation of the Matrix, Interpersonal Interventions & the Dynamics of Inclusion
  • Phase II: The Stage & Process of Differentiation, Group Level Interventions & the Dynamics of Control
  • Phase III: The Stage & Process of Transformation, Individual Interventions, & Dynamics of Intimacy; Realizing Interconnectedness & Collaborative Leadership

Each phase includes:

  • Seven to eight small group sessions facilitated by participants with debriefing and feedback.
  • Talks and exercises that correspond to the corresponding stage of group development in any context.
  • Meeting in smaller application groups to discuss how the Matrix model can be applied in professional and personal contexts.
  • A training manual containing the updated model, exercises, talks and articles for each phase.
  • Debriefing the process of this training group through the Matrix lens and experiencing the interventions of the Matrix training staff as well as participants.

  • Structured opportunities for ongoing coaching, networking and learning

Impact

Within a few months, I could see how my participation in the Matrix had already begun to inform my skills for relating and negotiating conflict as applications began to show up in my personal life as well as with my clients. I love being able to witness others respond skillfully and with heart in the group circle. I learn about myself and relationship and myself-in-relationship every meeting. This group is of great value to me. I don't know of another venue where I could engage and work on these skills with such loving and supportive guidance.
