San Jose Convention Center, 150 W San Carlos St., San Jose

Seth Dobbs shared a primer on leadership for architects, focusing on guiding principles that are easy to learn and put into practice. Principles covered both inward focus (personal mastery) and external focus (effective interactions) and included topics such as vision, problem-solving, ownership, and conflict.

Seth explored material he’s used to train team members ranging from developers and designers up into the executive level but focused on core guiding principles specific to helping architects be more effective in their roles. Each principle was presented first with a problem or anti-pattern, then the principle, and then examples of the principle in practice.
