I know that many of you have seen the movie “The Matrix”, it is one of those movies that alters your sense of reality.
In my interview with Kevan Hall about his new book entitled ” Making the Matrix Work” Kevan alters the readers sense of reality about the complex structure of business today.
In large companies today we are faced with multiple bosses, competing goals, influence without authority and accountability without control of the norm. In Kevan’s new book he endeavors to show how the matrix can help employees and management increase the individual flexibility and responsiveness without confusing the goals or roles of the teams and employees.
Kevan states that the matrix is a deliberate choice to sacrifice some clarity for increased flexibility. He introduces tools and ideas to help individuals manage successively higher levels of ambiguity—from things that can be made clear to managing dilemmas and conflict.
If you are in the management of a larger organization then I highly recommend reading “Making the Matrix Work.”. This book will assist you in better understanding the overall personal and organizational dilemmas that pervade in big business today.

A few week ago I started an interview with David Sibbet the author of “Visual Leaders”. We did not get a chance to complete the interview so I invited David back for another podcast.
In this interview we continue our dialogue about ”Visual Leaders” and we also delve into another of David’s books entitled ” Visual Teams”.
As David states “Visualization provides teams with a common language and serves as as a powerful tool for improving processes and communicating big picture contexts”. Engaging in visual meeting using large murals or whiteboards is a very involving way to present and tell a story as well as a way to create engagement and buy-in from the teams members.
If you work in a team or own a business and have not experienced the benefit of utilizing the graphic visualization tools, then I would invite you to listen to this interview and visit Grove Consulting website by clicking here. You will find various tools and aids to assist you even if you don’t have an artistic bone in your body.
