Leading as Landscape Architects

Building Communication Skills & Business Relationships

This program will provide the skills that landscape architects need to lead projects and design teams more effectively. Participants will grow in self-confidence, gaining the tools to expand their role on projects beyond design consulting. Throughout the program, we will teach foundational techniques that provide new self-awareness and new knowledge of leadership principles. Our goal is to help participants develop leadership, communication, and relationship-building skills to be more confident in all aspects of their careers.

Program Overview
Inviting All Members of ASLA

Our programs incorporate a variety of techniques to maximize participant engagement. We use group-led discussions, Socratic methods, instructional videos and role-playing throughout our training. We promote collaboration among learners by integrating real-life workplace challenges and problems. Program engagement is not limited in the virtual setting.
