Build Your Foundation NOW: Transforming a Setback into Your Greatest Comeback

This powerful professional development session is designed to help women architects learn successful tactics for overcoming professional and personal challenges.


You cannot control what curve-balls are thrown your way (yes, including a global pandemic), but you can control how you respond. When faced with adversity, feeling lost or even paralyzed, is completely normal, but within life's setback lies a silver lining: an opportunity to lean into the most incredible comeback - and growth - you could have ever imagined. Learn how to work through the five stages of a setback, increase your productivity levels, nurture meaningful business relationships in a virtual world, and build a powerful professional brand based on a strong foundation, mission, and creative, empathetic leadership.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the five stages of a setback and learn how to use these to increase productivity levels.
  • Learn tangible, effective methods to build and nurture a quality professional network, virtually.
  • Design and develop strategies that transform losses into opportunities, using strategies based on effective leadership, emotional intelligence, and empathy.
  • Discover powerful strategies to refine your mission, rebrand your professional image in a virtual world, and build test with the people around you.
