With complexity comes challenges. As many global organisations are organised in matrix structures, there are subtle changes to the demands of leaders. Leaders within matrixed organisations are often senior with high levels of technical expertise, but not always having to directly manage large numbers of people. Matrix leaders can only succeed through exceptional influence and collaboration.
We’ve developed a number of leadership development programmes specifically aimed at the matrix leader – looking at leadership through a matrix lens. In these programmes we build these capabilities:
Inspiring others to perform, to collaborate, to disagree and to make things happen through influence and navigation of complex stakeholder communities (because you cannot ‘tell’ them what to do) are easy to say, and much harder to do.
At People Untapped, we use our extensive experience of leadership development and professional skills development, combining our knowledge of learning, with our understanding of how complex organisations work to create powerful Matrix Leadership Development opportunities. Of course, in addition to our modular approach to designing leadership development programmes, we back up our learning with diagnostics, specific 360 feedback (about matrix leadership capabilities), psychometrics and access to a blended learning platform to support the learning journey.
