RIBA Future Leaders: Learning to Lead, 18 March
Future Leaders 2021 launches with a dedicated session on learning to lead. To be effective as leaders, we need to develop an awareness of self and others. Join this session to debate the key qualities of a good leader and reflect on the areas you need to focus on. Hear from leading architects about the mindset and behaviours that underpinned their success. Reflect on how to build your professional powerbase and techniques for presenting with impact. Gain insight into the communication strategies leading practices employ when faced with negative press and to get stakeholders onside.
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.
