The Corporate Counsel Show: Why curiosity is key

Kate Jordan is the GC of a large listed company and, before that, was deputy chief executive partner of a BigLaw firm. Despite her very impressive resumé, she says she has “still got a huge amount to learn”. Being curious, and asking questions, is critical to success in-house, she says.

On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Origin Energy general counsel and executive manager, company secretariat (risk and governance) Kate Jordan, who reflects on her journey from BigLaw to a large law department, how she manages her voluminous workload, the importance of being curious and challenging one’s self, and what such an approach has taught her about herself.

Ms Jordan also explains why “bringing curiosity to the table” is so fundamental, particularly in the current climate, why being motivated about one’s employer’s mission is integral, how curiosity aids leaders in self-care and management of wellness needs within teams, and how chairing microfinancing not-for-profit Good Return offers her a more holistic perspective, not only on her work but also on her life.
