“Mentoring 101”

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 at 12:15-1:30 pm
CPD Approved for 1.25 Hours

Mentors are a must. Having a seasoned mentor can help impart legal wisdom informed by years of experience, and instill a sense of confidence, all of which can help pave the path to success. This workshop will offer you the opportunity to learn about the science behind what motivates and inspires excellence, and what smothers it. Explore the key ingredients for unleashing the best in others. Learn how to nurture and motivate by building on strengths that help catalyze professional and personal development, and learn how to ask for support and guidance when you need it. You will be provided with a feedback facilitation guide containing examples of leadership language that inspires. You will also be given the opportunity to practise new skills on how to offer feedback by engaging in strength-based activities.

Options for Lawyers is a networking, education and support group for lawyers making job or career transitions and for lawyers wishing to examine their options both personally and professionally. All LAP workshops are confidential and independent from the Law Society.
