We’ve all done personality or culture analyses that were helpful...for about five minutes until we got back to our jobs!
Matrix Insights was the first HR tool my leadership team kept using and using until we actually got better at being a healthy organization.The follow up messages, reminders all linked to our profiles and online tools, making it a tool that really hit the mark.
The Matrix Insights coaching platform allows me to provide a ‘hi-touch’ experience for my clients which I find to be extremely helpful in accelerating personal growth and change.
Between regular coaching meetings, clients can log on to complete assigned discovery work, receive action item reminders on a customized schedule for chosen areas of focus or receive small bite sized insights specifically tailored to their needs.These short, regular reminders, coupled with information on demand, provide my clients what they need to achieve results quickly.
I’ve never been a fan of HR tools. Then I saw Matrix Insights. I’ve been in corporate America for quite a while now, and I’ve seen many tools, and models that aspired to solve the challenges of team building, self-awareness, communication, and leadership. Almost universally I’ve found them all less helpful than they promised.
I’ve been using Matrix Insights for the last year, first with my manager, and peers. Now I’m using it with my reports, and the teams I work most closely with. We’ve even begun using it outside of my own department with Teams where we have ongoing working relationships that exceed traditional hierarchical boundaries. Because of what I’m learning from Matrix Insights, and the related changes I’m making in how I communicate, and collaborate, I’m a better colleague, a better leader, and even a better father.I’ve changed for the better, both in how I communicate, and collaborate, but also how I listen, and decide. Matrix Insights has proven to be a tremendously helpful, and simple way for me to build not just self awareness, but beyond that arming me with specific, actionable strategies to build better relationships, foster superior team work, and realize the enviable workplace we all desire. I recommend Matrix insights without reservation.
Matrix Insights provides powerful tools which leverage my work as a coach and consultant. I've enjoyed consulting with MBTI and other tools for more than 30 years, but “The Matrix” has brought me into the 21st century. It helps me to serve my clients better, faster, deeper, and with greater impact.
The web-based interface and recursive approach keep the learning front and center with participants over the long haul. This is the furthest thing from the old style 'one and done' approach to personality and leadership workshops.
With international authority Dr. Roger Pearman behind the scenes, the research is bullet-proof. And, the Matrix is totally focused on behavior, learning and performance. I've been using it with good results in higher education, tech, science and nonprofit organizations.
Using the Matrix, my clients can conduct their assessments and absorb the rich content asynchronously in their own time. Some of them revisit the lessons multiple times. Then in our group and individual sessions we target application of the material to their team and leadership realities. And the video based modules are more accessible to some learning styles than a more traditional print-only content platform.
Last, but not least, the support team gets an A+ (I also teach in the school of business). They are responsive, zero in on the specific help I need, and clearly are walking the talk of the Matrix. They provide patient, individualized attention to help me through the learning curve and to provide the best service to my clients.Matrix Insights has been a huge benefit in my consulting practice. I've discontinued or reduced my use of several other tools, including other personality tools and 360's, because The Matrix covers those applications. It is making a great difference for my clients and me in our organization development work.
Even though we have just started working with Matrix Insights, I already see the benefits of this powerful tool, and the impact it is making on our organization. At its core, all the critical pieces needed for talent and leadership development are easily accessible. What sets Matrix Insights apart, however, is that each product is personalized to the unique developmental needs of the client. Leadership strategies are actionable, offer accountability relative to skill development, and focus on results.If you are looking for a tool to actively engage your leaders and teams, Matrix Insights is the solution.
I think Matrix Insights is one of the most powerful tools we’ve introduced into our own team of finance executives. It has provided us insights on how we can adapt to varying and necessary style differences.When I look at my Matrix Insights profile, I first start by looking at me before I look at the team. Because it starts with me adapting my approach, and my thought, and how I interact. Our team has dramatically changed in our interactions, just in the last six months because we're able to look at each other and say now I know why he or she needs this and I’m going to adapt to work towards that, or at least have an informed conversation about it. We are beginning to cascade this tool to all our managers and eventually our employees.
Sara: "The insight emails are pretty freaking bang on".
Alicia: "My favorite aspect of Matrix Insights is the insight emails. They are like fortune tellers and fortune cookies. They’ve helped me adjust on the go, and have been hugely transformational."
Ahmed: "The results have been spot on with team dynamics, and have helped me improve a relationship with a specific co-worker. I’ve now realized a huge blindspot of mine about going with the flow."
Luke: "I appreciate the common language and now have a better insight as to how and why people act."
Matrix Insights is genius. This is by far the best way I’ve found to get the most out of personality type, and actually engage the learner in what it means to build leadership agility for the long-term health of a team.
My clients on Matrix Insights are building better relationships, and leveraging their diverse styles and types in real time. In my first month using Matrix Insights, I already have clients reporting that Matrix Insights is central to how they’re unpacking, and solving simmering problems.It was fast, and simple to get started on Matrix Insights. There was no complex certification, no up front fees, and no cumbersome training process. We’ll be using Matrix Insights wherever and whenever possible. Genius!
I have used several personality, and behavioral models in my work. They made sense as a self awareness tool for students. But Matrix Insights changed the game. Traditional behavioral and personality models left our students underwhelmed, and often asking, "So what?" Now, we have a simple yet powerful, and personalized way to answer that question. We’re engaging students in actionable ways to think, learn and develop valuable leadership agility across multiple dimensions.

Soft skills are in fact the hard part of business. So when we redesigned the way we develop soft skills to EMBAs and MBAs, we chose to power our new program with behavioral science, fueled by micro-learning, and connected with an engaging new technology. We’ve worked with Matrix Insights since 2014….(w)e replaced legacy behavioral tools from last century, in favor of the Matrix Insights approach: multi-media, cloud based, iterative and interactive approach to developing these critical qualitative talents. Our programs, and our graduates are better for it.
Matrix Insights offers a suite of tools that provides flexibility and a modern approach to building self awareness and improving team dynamics. It is easy to use, has a clean interface and provides multiple ways for the user and their team to move through the various components, reports, and videos. For MBTI especially, it’s nice to see Type done right!
Matrix Insights helps shift our use of type models from an occasional edutainment novelty, to an everyday language for understanding and benefiting from individual differences across our team; I've been wanting a tool like this for years.
In our organization, the Matrix Insights tool and concepts have kick-started a dialogue about how to facilitate more effective interactions among colleagues. The combination of self-awareness and relationship insights prompts employees to take an active role in managing their personal and professional development. Whether coaching in a group or individual setting, the tool has become an integral part of our leadership development initiatives including our Emerging Leaders Program. Recent program graduates unanimously applauded the Matrix Insights tool as the critical anchor that facilitated a robust and enduring developmental experience.
