Matrix Insights Assessment for PMBA Team Building

As part of the team-building session during Orientation, we will be utilizing the Matrix Insights assessment to augment the discussion of behavioral and communication styles. A link and access information will be sent to you upon acceptance. You should plan to invest approximately one hour in this worthwhile assessment. Not only will you receive an overview of your communication style, but also those of your team members once everyone has completed their assessments and you are assigned your teams. This tool also offers suggestions for professional development based on your results.  Please do not share this link with anyone else, as you will incur a charge.
