Playing telephone…but wanting to hang up.

telephone

One of the unpleasant parts of being an architect is playing “telephone” — that is, relaying information from a client to the contractor, or client to consultant or consultant to contractor.  This is especially difficult when either party is making unreasonable, if not, outright rude, requests/demands.  The diplomacy required to make translations into more polite requests can be exhausting.  The need to maintain good working relationships with all parties is crucial in this business….I’m trying to figure out how to maintain these relationships when you are put into these compromising positions.

I am very close to just carrying a white flag with me at every meeting from now on!   These are skills that you didn’t know were so important to being an architect.
