As architects, we use sketches, renderings, models and technical drawings to convey ideas to clients, contractors and consultants on a daily basis. But in order to become compelling and effective communicators we must also learn to harness our voice, posture and listening skills. Over the past several months, Studio G staffers were excited to participate in a series of workshops led by Communication Skills Consultant, Lauren Garlick. Using theatre-based skills and interactive techniques, Lauren helped us hone our leadership training, team building, presentation development and public speaking.
Lauren is an award-winning coach and educator who helps individuals and groups become more compelling and effective communicators. Trained in Speech, Drama, English and Teacher Education, Lauren has taught at Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel, Stony Brook University, NY and Framingham State University, MA.
