Leadership Exchange - August/September 2011 - (Page 17)

NEW MEMBER SPOTLIGHT Melanie Mawema Seed Mackall LLP How long have you been an administrator? Four months. I’m a newbie. What career or profession, other than your own, have you always wanted to try? Journalism - I’m a news junkie with a curious mind so it makes sense to me. What advice would you give someone entering the legal administrator field? I am still learning. My advice is to learn all you can from your colleagues. Ask them what mistakes they made and learn from them. Share an interesting “tidbit” about yourself that most people would not know: I have a lazy left eye. To be successful, legal administrators have to: Multi-task successfully, keep an open door and manage with a smile. The best advice I received from a fellow legal administrator was: Same as previous. In my spare time I like to: Exercise and read. I love to travel as well. Activities (other than work) I’m involved in: I read to children at my local library; however, in the past four months work has been the only activity. Describe yourself in three words: Energetic, positive, calm. Describe your management style and why it works for you: I expect others to work hard, but only because I work hard. It has worked for me because it has earned the respect of my staff. I will never ask of them what I cannot do myself. They see it.
