In busy architecture studios, communication is often flagged as a skill many architects and designers want to get better at. Whether it is writing an email, verbally communicating with your team, or navigating challenging conversations with your client -- architects are required to be effective communicators, or the risks could be disastrous.
If you've ever wanted to improve your communication, this 90-minute workshop is designed to help architects, designers, and emerging professionals explore and enhance their skills. We'll review best practices, as well as common challenges found in practice.
Je'Nen Chastain, of Apostrophe Consulting, is offering this tailored workshop to AIA Chicago YAF participants to introduce participants to critical lifelong skills. Participants will have the opportunity to listen and ask questions.
