Future Leaders 2021: Leading Teams

The second Future Leaders 2021 is devoted to leading teams and projects. To run a successful project you need to be not only a good architect but an even better team leader. We explore what it takes to create a positive team climate and help people succeed, how to set expectations at the right level and give constructive feedback.

Future Leaders is a three-part programme, consisting of three individual half-day online events. It provides early career professionals with a comprehensive introduction to leadership through industry specific training. Sessions on key soft skills are delivered by experienced coaches, communication experts and thought leaders, while delegates also benefit from the invaluable applied knowledge and experience of some of the UK’s leading architects.

RIBA Future Leaders: Leading Teams, 28 April

The second Future Leaders 2021 event is devoted to leading teams. The best outcomes are achieved when the team climate sustains motivation and when all team members collaborate towards shared goals. As a team leader, what structures do you need to put in place to help people succeed? How do you identify their needs and enable them to thrive when working remotely? Join this session to learn how you can facilitate 'productive conflict' and find the right tone when setting expectations. Develop strategies to help you manage your personal time, set priorities and prevent burnout.

Executive Coach Karen Fugle will provide the leadership framework on the day. Karen is an accredited Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with more than 20 years of experience in the architectural industry. Karen founded SleepingGiant Consulting in 2014 after a successful career as a UK CAD/BIM consultant and she has been supporting architects, designers and construction professionals ever since.

Karen is a committee member of the Women in Architecture UK network and recently published the report: “Women in Architecture: Self-development and Career Advancement for Mid-Level Professionals”.

This event is RIBA CPD Approved. It is worth 3.5 hours of structured CPD.
