Instead of a ladder, Stacey describes his career as a journey. One that’s been both challenging and fulfilling. And, looking back, he has five pieces of advice for his younger self or anyone else who’s just beginning their own journey.
I recently had the honor of participating in the Innovative Legal Leadership podcast. During my discussion, I was asked what advice I would give my 25-year old self. Fortunately, I didn’t have to think hard about it because I happen to have two sons who are in their twenties and starting their career journeys. Because I’d give them the exact same advice, I’m eager to also share with you:
In my role leading our legal function at Assurant, I think of these pieces of advice every day as I help our team members grow their careers through new experiences. The commitment to helping our employees with their learning and development is part of what makes Assurant such a great place to work.
