Finding the Balance: Developing Leaders for the Future Peter DeLisle, Ph.D., Posey Leadership Institute, Austin College, Sherman Do you consider yourself a “high potential” member of the design leadership community? Do you know or work with someone who has untapped leadership potential? How does your practice address the need for personal effectiveness to be balanced with the drive for design and technical excellence? This presentation is a response to the identification of leadership challenges, especially those faced by new supervisors and managers. Designed in the spirit of practicality and utility, the content to be explored places great emphasis on the ability of the participant to begin immediate application of the knowledge gained to his/ her work effort. Leaders in complex organizations will find the session especially helpful since the examples and models are based on illustrations from firms engaged in problem resolution in these domains.

With the aid of specific multi-year performance data, learn to evaluate green building strategies, particularly those associated with suburban infill settings in southern climate zones, and how to effectively convey useful information in a meaningful, sensible way. 111056 LUHs 1.5
