Could you be achieving more? ACC Australia is here to give you the tools to help you achieve your goals. One of the greatest head starts you can give yourself is to engage a mentor. If you are serious about your potential, you won’t want just any mentor, you will want an ACC Australia mentor!
Here are three reasons why?
- ACC Australia mentors are in-house lawyers, most of whom have made the transition from private practice to in-house practice and understand the path you may be travelling.
- ACC Australia provides in-depth training, specifically designed for mentors in the in-house legal profession, equipping them with the right tools to effectively convey knowledge and expertise accumulated over the course of a career.
- Being an external mentoring program, provides mentees with a neutral space away from the workplace to discuss challenges with their mentors who can be objective and offer unique perspectives.
An Insider’s View
|Linda Oliver, Legal Counsel, Clarke Energy and 2020 Corporate Lawyer of the Year shares, “Mentoring opened my eyes to my true worth. It made me realise that there is no blueprint for success as an in-house legal counsel. Success is actually dependent on our internal barometer of what is important to us. In-house life is incredibly fast paced and often we don’t get the time to reflect on our successes as we’re simply onto the next business critical item on our list.
The ACC Australia mentoring program forced me to take time out of my day to reflect and work on myself. It gave me the confidence to get involved in opportunities in my workplace which were not necessarily aligned with the natural legal function but were important to me. An unintentional outcome of this was raising my profile and influence in the organisation which ultimately lead to winning the 2020 Corporate Lawyer of the Year Award, something I still pinch myself about! It’s also why I continue to participate in the mentoring program. To me, every connection has been a unique growth opportunity.”
Over the next couple of weeks, why not put some thought into your hopes and aspirations for 2022?
