What is a Matrix?
A matrix is the point at which two or more lines of information intersect on a chart. The points of intersection create new information to guide decision-making.

What is Juggling?
Juggling is the ancient skill and art of keeping more objects (balls) in the air than one has hands or time. It requires some skill, but mostly it requires having the courage to act one degree greater than your fear to handle more than you previously thought possible.

Juggling is an experience our brains cannot make sense of until we develop behaviors that bring us to a conscious, present moment - a crystal clear moment of Aha! It requires a process of Letting Go and Opening Up to a new way of accomplishing our mission.

How does The Juggling Matrix work?
METHODOLOGY: With the toss of the first ball, each individual relies on their own personal database of information to handle the task - keep the ball in the air. By adding a second ball, a virtual Matrix is created in front of us - an intersection of behavior points that give us an opportunity to "see" our Reality (the balls are colliding, the balls are staying up/my values are colliding, my values are holding firm) and Take Action to Change (improve performance by using old/or developing new behaviors).

The charting of these behaviors creates a Personal Matrix of how we act and think about making change. It creates the opportunity to reflect on our Expectations, our Fears, our ability to manage change.

Use the Matrix to ask:

  • What is it I Fear? - is it fear of succeeding, fear of failing, fear of feeling?
  • What is my Focus for this project, this job, this life-event? - what am I able to say I am getting out of this right now or for my future?
  • How am I responding to the situation?
  • Do I need to be more Flexible in my thinking, in my acting?
  • Am I guaranteeing my Failure by not acting differently?

The Matrix helps us Let Go, Open Up and Move Beyond what limits us.

The balls are tools?
Yes. The juggling balls are the tools that enable the Personal Matrix to become real. Each toss of a ball provides the participant with an opportunity to reflect on their situation: why did the ball go there? How am I going to adjust my plan to accomplish my goal? If I worked with someone else, could I accomplish this faster or better?

The balls also act as transitional objects: everyone leaves a Juggling Matrix session with three juggling balls and a guide book. They are encouraged to put the balls on their desk at work. In this way, the balls will remind them where they learned how to juggle and why. The balls are a constant reminder that change is possible with courage one degree greater than fear.

Juggling is a process-based system? Explain.
In order to juggle three balls there are fundamental steps that must be followed: starting in the right position, with the right focus, tossing the balls to the Vision Points within a certain timeframe, catching the balls and returning them into the Matrix. These are directly applicable metaphors for the workplace that Carlo works into his program for the sponsor.
