    12:00pm - 1:00pm

Traditional architectural training does not often prepare us with the business leadership and people management skills required to successfully lead an office. On top of that, office leadership comes with a variety of challenges that differ from everyday project leadership. Join the hosts of the Practice Disrupted podcast as they explore the following topics:

- What characteristics are required to make the jump from team member to office leader?
- What skills are transferable from project leadership to leadership within the office?
- How can we grow our talent from within to prepare to take on these roles?

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the qualities required to transition from team member to office leader.
  • Identify active ways to develop office leadership skills and define their benefits to project teams.
  • Explore the cultural shifts of the past year and their impacts on future firm leaders.
  • Describe the ways in which architects can utilize design thinking skills with a business purpose.
