At LGPro we believe that coaching is essential to your professional development and with access to a range of specialists working in Local Government, LGPro’s Mentoring Program can connect you with the expertise that is right for you.
A former mentee in the program, Anita Ransom from Cardinia Shire Council talks about her experience of the program.
My mentor Leanne has been extremely generous with her time and knowledge and I feel like she has really helped me in a number of ways. I feel much more confident in myself, my role at work and in how I will progress my career in the future. She has also helped me grapple with the whole work/life balance. I will be going on maternity leave with a number of ideas about how I will approach work on my return and I feel very positive and motivated about my future. The program has been fantastic, and I really like the way it can be tailored to each mentor/mentee relationship. I would not hesitate to recommend this program to others. I am also appreciative of the commitment that Leanne has made to it in terms of her time and knowledge. She has been a fantastic mentor. I know she must be very busy, but she was always fully engaged, had thought about our meeting ahead of time and was so approachable.
