We’re increasingly asked to operate in complex matrix environments but face the challenge of breaking down the silos. It takes a different approach to communication if you want to work in the matrix instead of being stuck in a silo.
The more complex our organizations get, the more dependent we are upon one another to get our work done. The challenge arises when people operate in silos in order to retain control over their domain. Silos and the matrix cannot coexist peacefully.
The format for this particular podcast was a little different – it was less of an interview and more of an open conversation like you’d overhear three guys having over a coffee (or, in my case, green tea on account of my heart attacks).
Give the podcast a listen while you sip your coffee this morning. I’m hopeful it will change the way you look at working in a matrixed environment and breaking down silos.
If you enjoyed that podcast, here are two more I recorded with Jan and Jim previously. Enjoy!
