Architects as Leaders

I had the privilege of working with Pete DeLisle, PhD, on today’s webinar on Leadership and Professional Practice for Architects. He discussed his philosophy on leadership and provided some great insights into what it takes to be an effective leader.1-DELISLEIMAGE

While his discussion was relevant to leadership as a whole, he honed in on how leadership and architecture often go hand in hand. According to Pete, “the architects, in fact, have an increasingly responsible part to play in how we articulate not only the built environment but how we embrace the idea of people living together in a very positive and hospitable way.”

Much of his understanding of architects as leaders comes from the work he has done with the AIA Dallas Emerging Leaders Program over the past several years. He had such an impact on the organization he was named Honorary AIA in 2014. For a snapshot into his expertise and views on leadership, check out this interview in the AIA Dallas Springboard.

Pete was also a contributor to the Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice, 15th Edition. If you’d like to learn more about leadership from Pete, leave us a comment or let us know. We’d be happy to get you connected.
