Most Canadians spend at least eight hours a day at work. Frequently, it's much more than that. What are they actually gaining - or losing, from this investment? How engaged are they in their career and how is it affecting their health? When is the last time they took a vacation?

CareerCycles offers participants a revitalizing three days of easy biking, through the beautiful and scenic Picton area, while providing supportive guidance towards a new career path. This remarkable, accelerated, career coaching program has received positive reviews from both The Medical Post and The Ontario Medical Review!

A 2005 evaluation survey revealed that 88% of participants found CareerCycles influenced their career decisions and 72% made a significant career change.

With CareerCycles, participants acquire professional and personal insights; and the momentum needed, to get the renewal process into action. This wonderful and refreshing getaway helps people determine what's most important in both their career and their life, assess the options and identify next steps.
