I have known and worked with Doug for just over 5 years. In my capacity as President of the Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association (SHCA), I first worked with Doug and his firm in the spring of 2012 when Doug was a presenter at our Annual Spring Meeting. Doug gave a presentation on the differences between coaching, mentoring, and simply supervising workers. He went on to present the benefits of building a mentoring culture as the new corporate culture. By all accounts, it was a very successful presentation and an important part of the meeting agenda. The SHCA continues to consult with Doug and was pleased to have him back to deliver a presentation during our 2012 fall conference. This...
