Is climate change behind all the crazy weather we see today? Does fixing climate mean we have to shut down the economy? Why are the Pope and the National Association of Evangelicals piling o ...

It was a night to drive any man indoors. Not only was the darkness impenetrable, but the raw mist enveloping hill and valley made the open road anything but desirable to a belated wayfarer like myself. Being young, untrammeled, and naturally indifferent to danger, I was not averse to adventure; and having my fortune to make, was always on the lookout for El Dorado, which, to ardent souls, lies ever beyond the next turning. Consequently, when I saw a light shimmering through the mist at my ri ...
 
"I was married to-day in Grace Church. At the altar my bride--you probably know her name, Miss Georgian Hazen--wore a natural look, and was in all respects, so far as any one could see, a happy woman, satisfied with her choice and pleased with the éclat and elegancies of the occasion. Half-way down the aisle this all changed. I remember the instant perfectly. Her hand was on my arm and I felt it suddenly stiffen. I was not alarmed, but I gave her a quick look and saw that something had happe ...

How can you be a better you, in all forms? All week we've talked about being better leaders, employee, and colleagues. Many times we think about those roles in the work context, but your family, your your friends, and your community need you to be the best you can be in their context as well.Bởi Gābl Media // EntreArchitect
 
As I look back over the week, it strikes me that, at least according to my definitions, one characteristics that the best leader, the best employee, the best colleague all need to posses is selflessness. A vision that stretches beyond and is bigger than me. I don’t see how I could possibly be the best leader, employee, or especially colleague if I …
 
You may not be an employee. You may be the boss! Or, you may be a solo architect that’s neither employee nor employer. If that’s your context today, that doesn’t mean that this conversation isn’t for you. I’m guessing that at some point in your career you’ve been an employee.

I believe there’s a leadership vacuum today. It doesn’t matter where you look, politics, corporate, family, the church… I think the world is starving for leaders. I’m not sure if this is accurate or not, but it seems to me that leadership has eroded over time. It didn’t disappear over night. So, if I’m right. If we’re in desperate need of good lead…
 
All week, we’ve been talking about thinking bigger; bigger than your own work, bigger than the profession, bigger than you, the individual.

If we continue talking about, wondering a…
 
How can it be that there empty, abandoned buildings, and there are homeless people? There are buildings that need people and people that need buildings.

The question is, once we unde…

A few weeks ago, someone brought up a very real risk for small and especially solo firms. What happens when one of us gets sick, or worse, maybe incapacitated?

Are you confident? Are you authentically confident? You might say, of course I'm confident. Don’t all professionals need confidence?

Do you suffer from perfectionism? I know it’s hard, especially in a profession so vulnerable to disputes. Of course you want things to be perfect. What’s that perfection costing you? What are you missing out on? The bottom line is that perfect is an excuse. Perfectionism is the opposite of courage. What are you going to do today to move forward? Wh…
 
Do you have impostor syndrome? Have you ever felt you’re not good enough, not qualified enough? I think there are plenty of times in an architect’s career that they may experience imposter syndrome.

What are you afraid of? As I think back across my career, I realize that many of the worst stories I have to tell, start with fear. Maybe you’ve experienced similar things.

This isn’t the first time we’ve covered Instagram on Context & Clarity, but it’s been one of our most popular social media topics. It makes sense.

We all communicate, but when do we communicate, why do we communicate, and how do we communicate? This conversation about a culture of communication isn't only for firm leaders.
