Communication Training for ASLA Virginia

Collaboration Across Project Teams

Educational institutions prepare landscape architects to fulfill the desire for a sustainable environment that enhances society's quality of life. While that education provides immense professional value, it is only part of the equation for a productive and collaborative working environment with colleagues in other industries. Today the art of leadership, communication and diplomacy are more crucial than ever in enhancing landscape architecture's prominence as a profession and enabling landscape architects to guide collaborative efforts to improve the global environment.

Program Overview

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 awareness and new knowledge of fundamental leadership principles. Our goal is to help participants develop new capabilities that will create a positive change, solve complex problems, and break down barriers that landscape architects often experience on project teams.
