Collective Leadership Activation

Occurs when leaders across all organisational levels are aligned, know what to do and their actions positively reinforce frontline employee new ways of working.

Matae is the only software solution dedicated to helping transformation and business improvement project teams achieve this.

“When we say everyone at Microsoft can come in and do their very best work, they can only do that if they feel that the person closest to them in leadership is supporting them to do so.”

- Satya Nadella, CEO Microsoft

How it Works


We know leaders are busy when they juggle multiple priorities, deadlines and managing people every day.

To empower leaders to champion projects we need to make leading change easy.

Matae helps leaders perform their critical role by providing simple plans that capture exactly what their team members need to start and stop doing, the key messages they need to communicate and the tasks and actions they need to perform.

Plus, with notifications, reminders and nudges delivered via Microsoft Teams native chat, Matae helps ensure busy leaders never miss a beat.

How it works


In large transformation programs high volumes of information is the norm, making it hard for leaders to know exactly what's relevant to them and their teams.

Matae enables project teams to deliver only the relevant information and resources to leaders, so they don't need to spend-time figuring-out what's important.

And with Matae's Microsoft Teams App leaders can access everything they need on-demand, when they need it.

how it works


Transformation and business improvement programs are typically complex with multiple changes impacting different teams, in different ways, at different times. It's impossible to move forward, let alone move fast, without moving together.

Leaders not only need to be aligned on the vision and what success looks like, but also be equipped to take action at the right times. When leaders fail to move as a synchronised collective, slippage and bottlenecks occur, and delays compound.

Matae enables project team to choreograph the actions of leadership cohorts across their entire organisation.

How it works

Leader Attention Window

To activate leaders not only capturing but holding their attention is key.

Independent research from Bain & Company and McKinsey has found that projects hold leaders' attention for a maximum of 8-weeks after go-live before focus shifts to new priorities, other business opportunities or leaders simply get bored.

Using these insights, we've designed Matae to help you maintain the focus of your leaders.

how it works


Change doesn't happen overnight, especially change that genuinely moves the needle. Implementing sustainable change requires maintaining leadership focus over an extend period of time.

Matae enables project teams to take an iterative approach to activating leaders by providing the framework and tools for leadership activation cycles.

From a planning perspective, this allows you to focus your leader’s attention on what will have the greatest impact first and shift the focus from one cycle to the next.

how it works


The challenge with most transformation programs is the indicators used to measure success are lagging metrics. Think technology utilisation measures or financial results.

Matae unlocks the ability to measure leading behavioural indicators. It enables teams to measure leader action, employee adoption and track benefit realisation all in real time, not after the fact.

How it works

Repeatable and scalable

Matae’s iterative approach works particularly well with Agile product delivery.

For Agile projects, leader activation cycles are aligned with product releases (to any size of, or number of customer groups), enabling project teams to shift leadership focus in the same rhythms as product delivery.
