Direction, Alignment, Commitment:
 Three Keys to Leadership Success

Friday, April 7, 2017
11:00 a.m. EST/10:00 a.m. CTL

When these three processes are present—direction, alignment, commitment—we know that leadership is at work.  Facilitating these successfully is the hard work of leading a team, organization, or system.  If it were a simple matter of telling people what, where, when, and how to do something, leadership would be a matter of SOPs.  The problem?  Human meaning and sense making which
is why communicating, visioning, teaming, and an array of competencies matter.  Technical skills like engineering, accounting, and
marketing are essentially 50% of the equation while instilling leadership is the other 50%. In an environment when everyone wants a personalized path to effectiveness, including learning how to learn mission critical leadership skills, Matrix Insights provides the comprehensive developmental journey from awareness to action.
