The 2021 Leadership Forum is totally virtual.
The 2021 Leadership Forum has made a few changes in order to work best as a virtual Forum. The sessions are shorter than other years – each from one to four hours long – and scheduled twice a month from February through July. Topics covered have also been somewhat adjusted to be more relevant for today’s practicing architect. The final session will include a keynote address from Kimberly Dowdell, AIA, NOMAC, Director of Business Development at HOK in Chicago.

Topics covered include:
  • leadership styles and values
  • self-awareness 
  • foundations of intercultural development
  • communication
  • motivation and engagement
  • leadership stories/case studies 
  • future trends and advocacy
  • synthesis through application and implementation
