Our research has shown that those who believe that their daily work is aligned with long-term career goals are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs, and less likely to be looking for new employment opportunities. This workshop will explore strategies for transforming workplace culture in order to: , increase mentorship opportunities, provide fair and unbiased criteria for advancement, counter tendencies of in-group favoritism, promote team building, and to develop meaningful roles for all employees. We will use design thinking tools to assess your (or your team’s) strengths and growth areas that can be matched with development opportunities to increase engagement, improve project outcomes and facilitate the development of fulfilling careers in architecture.

Evaluate actionable proposals against one another to better understand their method of implementation, impact and viability.
