If you have a leadership role within the matrix structure, you might recognise these phrases:

  • But I don't have the authority to get things done
  • My goals aren't clear, I don't know what to prioritise
  • I can't be accountable for things I don't control

Join us as we explore the practical skills all leaders need to thrive in a matrix organisation.
