The Mentor-Coach Program is a proprietary Tandem Thinkers response to the marketplace requirement for accelerating personal development. We have combined select attributes of mentoring and coaching; creating a cost-effective solution that enables organizations to quickly develop key personnel to increase their effectiveness in their roles. This Program does not replace the longer term need for mentoring and coaching processes. It has proven to effectively address tactical needs to ensure rapid development of key resources in a company. Business owners, and employees who have been recently promoted, or will be, or who have significant new responsibilities, especially in people management, are ideal candidates for our Program.
Tandem Thinkers principal Doug Leitch has decades of experience in both mentoring and coaching, with formal mentoring training coupled with experience-based learning. Doug began his formal mentoring role in the mid-1990s, mentoring up-and-coming leaders at IBM, and expanded that over time to volunteer and provide professional mentoring to small business owners and their teams throughout York Region.
