LSW Architects is a Vancouver Wash.-based architecture and design firm.

We use our strengths to build more productive teams.

LSW Architects believes that positivity can eradicate toxic habits in the design and building industry. In recognition of the firm's positive impact and culture, Kolbe Corp has awarded LSW with the 2018 Conative Excellence Enterprise Award. The Vancouver-based architecture and design firm received the award Oct. 25 at Conation Nation Symposium — the authoritative conference dedicated to the science of instinctive strengths and human achievement.

Clare Willson, Strategist at LSW, knows how one company can have an impact beyond the walls of its office. “We take a holistic approach to building a team,” says Willson. “We begin internally with our clients, owners and engineers, but we also include our consultants, all the way down to our contractors, in using our strengths to build more productive teams.”

“LSW values its people as the heart of its success,” said David Kolbe, CEO of Kolbe Corp. “This is evident in the way they invest and support them, both personally and professionally.” LSW has used Kolbe for over 15 years at all levels within the organization. The company uses Kolbe Indexes and solutions for putting teams together — even the office Olympics — to running team meetings and enhancing their teams’ creative development.

LSW Architects received the award at Conation Nation Symposium in Scottsdale, Ariz. LSW Chief Financial Officer Shara Wokal attended along with Strategist Clare Willson. In addition, more than 225 consultants and business leaders attended to recognize and celebrate each of the winners.
