Support the firm’s design ethos – seek high design solutions inspired by authentic design influences…seek design concepts informed by real conditions. A firm wide leader that pursues work directly with clients, lands work, and gets it executed well. Beyond recruiting new client opportunities, a Leader looks for repeat opportunities with existing clients. A Leader also looks to expand CJ+C services into new markets whenever possible. Within their area of expertise/market sector, a Leader develops a business plan and then follows through with it passionately. They need to be an innovator dedicated to improving the bottom line of the firm and also raising the quality of work produced by the firm. It is critical for Leaders to review staff working for them and serve as a mentor to those less experienced. Leaders also need to select the most qualified design consultants and evaluate their performance on each project. Finally, they should exert a leadership role in community and professional organizations that further the firm’s goals.
