Tammy Albarrán, partner and Covington’s 2015 Leadership Council for Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow, participated in LCLD’s second annual Fellows’ training program in Chicago September 28 through 30. Tammy commented that the program was an “amazing opportunity to meet and learn from a vibrant group of diverse in-house lawyers and outside counsel.”
According to LCLD, the Fellows Program “is an ambitious, highly structured training program designed to build relationships and leadership skills. It works by identifying high-potential attorneys from diverse backgrounds and setting them on the path to leadership of their organizations."
Tammy shared highlights from the three-day conference, including the “Think Like an Improvisor” session. The session, led by Chicago’s Second City Works, organized various improvisation activities to break down self-imposed barriers to contributing meaningfully in a group setting and to learn and enhance communication skills. mmy remarked: “It was an eye-opening exercise. It demonstrated how paralyzing and counterproductive it is to worry about ourselves and how our contributions may be perceived by others. We become less willing to speak up and share ideas. When we shift our perspective and put the interests of the team before our own, we become more engaged and up with a wealth of creative ideas. It captured the essence of what it means to be a team player and to think outside the box.”
