Ben Kasdan – Leading a Culture of Mentorship | Podcast
May 18, 2023
How do you apply mentorship in project work and team collaboration?
Mentorship is a term frequently used in the field of architecture. But what exactly is mentorship? Many architects struggle to mentor because they’re unsure what mentorship looks like and when to apply it. To help retain, attract, and develop the next generation of architects, the concept of mentorship is a necessary leadership tool needed inside the architecture firm to support a healthy culture of feedback and guidance. By considering mentorship as an integral part of a talent development strategy, architects can introduce mentorship conversations at the project level of their day-to-day operations.
To help us discuss applied mentorship within project settings and teams, we’ve invited Ben Kasdan to join us. Ben is a Principal and Design Leader at KTGY in Washington, DC. He’ll share some of the ways he’s thought about mentorship in the context of managing his projects and people.
