Webinar – The Matrix Manager: How to Lead in a Collaborative Environment

HRDQ will be hosting a webinar, presented by Jim Eicher, on Wednesday, January 18, 2011, from 2pm – 3pm EST.


Multi-functional teams, virtual work environments, and dotted-line reporting relationships. Modern organizations are shaped more like complex spider webs than the triangular flowcharts we learned about in Management 101. And this new structure is stretching the competencies and capabilities of even the best managers.

To achieve success in today’s world, managers need a new skill set—one that enables them to shift their focus from a traditional “command and control” approach to a more fluid and flexible “influence and collaboration” strategy.
