All aspects of leadership were the focal point of CLANZ’s inaugural CLANZmini conference last month.
The CPD event was held in Auckland and Wellington with over 230 in-house lawyers from around the country participating.
The day was spilt into six sessions – what does leadership mean to me, young leadership, personal leadership, team leadership, ethical leadership, and community leadership with each theme explored through a mixture of practice and theory.
One of the more prevalent themes at both events was the importance of communication.
Speaking in Wellington, Peter Hughes, Secretary for Education and Chief Executive of Ministry of Education, described communication as being the “core oxygen” of leadership and how so many can get it wrong.
“After spending four years in Wellington I never thought I would be moving to Auckland to work in a public law position but this role come up,’’ says Auckland Council solicitor Richard Harker.
“And it has been fun learning about the city, the region and everything that makes it tick. Whether it is attending a local meeting in Brown’s Bay in regards to dog bylaws or dealing with the issue of street prostitution around Hunters Corner, you get that introduction into the different aspects of Auckland life.’’
Mr Harker is the 2013 MAS Young In-House Lawyer of the Year and has been heavily involved in the city’s continuing super city transformation over the past two years.
