There are many ways to build a career in architecture and many paths to take. So, how can we best support people to chart their own course? What is the role of practices and senior leadership? What processes can help foster professional development and accountability? 

The Champions of Change Architecture Group argues that annual performance reviews are inadequate and often in-effective. They propose regular development-focused conversations to enrich and support an individual’s purpose, ownership, connection and career pathway to the benefit of all.

Watch to find out how to have meaningful, constructive conversations that lead to tangible action.
