If you succeed, they'll take one step back, and if you screw up, they'll take one step closer. What it is they teach you...pass it on. — Michael J.

  • Mentoring in The Future “The Narrative of Transformation” Supporting Data • 24% of working Canadians believe the most important factor in a good work environment is the opportunity to learn new skills. • Quality of life, social and peer support for people over 50 on the increase in urban centres throughout Canada. • 89% of people living outside Canada rated Canada as having the best qualities of life anywhere in the world. More than 50% said they would abandon their homelands to move to Canada if they could. The UN Quality of Life Index rates Canada as the fourth best place to live. One of the things about life is that it often takes a long time to really get even the simplest truths. We can be sent the same message over and over and fail to see it...we often need input from a teacher, mentor, or friend who can shed light on our situation and show us what we need to do, where we can go deeper, and how we can change. — Lisa Oz
