Improve Cross-Functional Communication and Collaboration

Today, more and more companies are adopting cross-functional team structures that reward collaborators over “lone wolves.” As members of these teams often have complex reporting relationships, rather than single bosses, goals need to be aligned across departments or teams.

In matrix organizations, where teams of team members represent various departments, the lines of decision-making are often blurred; it’s not always clear who is in charge, or who has the ultimate decision-making authority.

In many cases, team leaders lack the skills needed to boost cooperation and communication within their teams, and team members often lack the skills and knowledge to collaborate effectively.

OnPoint offers training for cross-functional teams and team leaders in a variety of formats, including 90-minute, instructor-led online programs and 30-minute, self-directed e-learning programs.

Each program can be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization. In addition, our series of skill development topics can be combined based on your needs and delivered face-to-face in half or full-day sessions.

Some of our cross-functional team training topics include:

  • Empowering the Members of Your Matrix Team
  • Managing Accountability in a Matrix
  • Enhancing Judgment and Decision-Making in a Matrix
  • Courageous Dialogue: Engaging in High-Impact Conversations
  • Inspirational Leadership
