Finding where a client sits on the Matrix and the circle of control: major light bulbs
I have definitely been someone who “accepted” whatever the situation was and did my best to “rescue” aspects of projects, leading to a lot of anxiety and loss of sleep worrying about things that were not even in my control: the circle of control really hit home – I need to practice using this tool a lot more.
Being able to identify where a client lies on the matrix will really help shape the way I approach new projects and I found the individual intervention really helpful with the examples expressed. Using the family framework to help deal with people across projects will be really useful. Super helpful and interesting course, so glad to have taken it!
Excellent practical tips to apply to everyday working with people
I thoroughly enjoyed this training. It was easy to understand with practical tips and examples that I could relate to. I can start using these tools straight away. Thank you
