About our Member Mentoring Series

Across all three levels of government and the community sector there exists a tremendous amount of knowledge and wisdom that we now make available to you through an informal small group mentoring session.

In 2020 we have identified a number of themes emerging from the public sector reform process and sought mentors from a wide range of sectors in line with the impetus for professional public servants to have improved capacity for collaboration and working with organisations beyond the public service. This is an opportunity available exclusively to personal members.

Mentoring is an effective process for the transfer of professional skills and benefits mentees through support for skills and knowledge development It is designed to provide an additional layer of career and professional development.

By attending mentees will:

  • Develop personal skills and self-confidence.
  • Gain a broader understanding of the public sector and the role of IPAA
  • Develop relationships with more senior colleagues to explore career and professional pathways in a supportive, informal environment. 

Topics you may wish to discuss at the session include:

  • Leadership styles and attributes
  • Networks: building, sustaining etc.
  • Personal presentation and communication skills ( e.g. resumes, interviews, public speaking)
  • Working with others in teams: as a member; as a leader
  • Managing performance (your own and others)

It is important to understand that mentoring is one component of a professional development plan. It is focused on career and professional development conversations. It complements skill development training and is not a substitute for emotional support systems such as counselling.

The group mentoring concept will see well credentialed IPAA members and leaders invited to engage with eight IPAA members over a light meal to provide advice and insight as to fulfilling your potential.
