Matrix Leadership:
Re-Weaving the Web of Human Connection

Through the Matrix Model we offer a simple, transformative approach to creating sustainable, life-enhancing relationships, groups, communities, and organizations. We begin by developing open, compassionate communication between each pair of people as the foundation for a group's evolution. In Matrix groups, diverse individuals truly meet, understand, support and collaborate with each other. We develop the capacity to realize our interdependence and harvest our emerging collective intelligence.

Matrix Leadership Institute is dedicated to providing teams of gender-balanced, diverse faculty who are passionate about their work as Matrix facilitators. We are committed to direct, experiential learning and we offer a full range of training formats that foster deep personal and skill-based professional learning for groups and individuals.

Matrix trainings utilize a variety of whole-brain, whole-person modalities to access multiple learning styles. These modalities may include small group sessions, structured experiential group exercises, mini-lectures, movement, dance, yoga, meditation, voice and sound, drumming, music, poetry and visual arts.

I have an Ivy League degree in psychology, a Harvard MBA, training as a psychotherapist, and extensive training with Young Presidents' Organization Forum groups, yet the 21 days I spent in the training provided me with valuable and sustaining perceptions and skills that none of these had provided.
