A good mentor enhances an employee’s performance 5x compared to the employees who didn’t have a mentor.



There's little doubt that Canada’s cultural workforce is at a unique point in history. As "Baby Boomers" – people born between 1946 and 1964 – begin to retire, a new generation is stepping into their shoes.

Generation X, or Generation Y have values and work styles that are completely different from the baby boomers. Finding ways to bridge the gaps within this new multigenerational workforce takes great skill – and it all starts with understanding how new generation leaders think, and what's important to them.

T2L’s mentorship program is a good way of efficiently transferring valuable competencies from one generation to another and from one person to another. Our program will expand your organization's skills base, help to build a strong management team and contribute to your succession planning strategy.
