Mentoring is an invaluable way to support current and emerging leaders in their career development and help grow their confidence, as well as navigate a pathway to success. With current and projected shortages of qualified staff in the age services industry, as well increased customer expectations of high quality support and care, never has there been a more urgent need for the development and retention of talented age services professionals.
The LASA Mentoring Program is a five-month mentoring partnership and online coaching program, which facilitates the professional development of current and emerging leaders in the age services industry. This interactive Australia-wide program is carefully curated to give our Mentees access to one-on-one individualised support and guidance from industry-experienced Mentors.
The program was structured with great templates and resources to start the partnerships off right.
As senior leaders in aged care we must be part of developing the next generation of leaders.
I believe everyone should have various mentors throughout their life …
… but it is invaluable to have a mentor within the same sector you work within.
The Mentor I was partnered with was a great match in terms of knowledge and background.
Before this program, I didn’t know what mentors can do for me.
