Okapi’s Take on EMERGE Leadership…the Book

Since my book EMERGE: A Strategic Leadership Model for the Sustainable Building Community is written expressly for practitioners focused on sustainability, it is extremely gratifying that Okapi Architecture, a design firm located in Los Angeles, has reviewed the book and found it helpful.  Okapi was established by Ying Wang in 2010, with the passion to bridge the gap between conventional architectural design, sustainability, and energy efficiency. In the firm’s March, 2017 newsletter, Lance Williams (the firm’s program manager) says: “EMERGE is an advanced training manual that will benefit many people seeking to understand the ever-evolving profession…it is a primer in how to take the breakthroughs of green building technology and merge them with a big picture approach. The primary goal is to…have an organized framework by which individuals have a set of tools to work collaboratively, plan effectively and communicate through a common language.”  For the full review:
