Patti at Kennedy

“Recognize the skills and traits you don’t have, and hire the people who have them” -Mentoring words of Wisdom via Sargent Shriver

Patti Austin and Tim Stancell-CondronI was in Boston last week for what Dawn Carroll and I called “Mentor-Fest” Drenched in MENTORING, our Over My Shoulder Foundation participated in the production of several events and then we got a private tour of the new Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate with our new friend Tim Stancell-Condron

This Monday, March 30th President Obama will be on hand for the dedication and Grand Opening along with the First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the Kennedy Family. I have had the pleasure of being involved with the Kennedy/ Shriver family for many years and have never forgotten the mentoring advice I shared with you above that came from Sargent Shriver.

And this is what I love most about our Over My Shoulder Foundation’s MENTOROLOGY ( the art and science of mentoring) It doesn’t matter what side you are on- it doesn’t matter who or what you believe in, it matters that you share educated opinions that move us all towards a society of greater inclusion. Break down barriers people! It matters…. what you do AND say MUST have a positive impact and our actions must MENTOR/ kindle communities of respect, diversity, culture and individuality! I wish I could be there in Boston on Monday to sing one of my favorite arrangements the “Star Spangled Banner” President Obama is one of the only Presidents I have never sung for! What’s up with that? I dedicate our Over My Shoulder song to celebrate all the MENTORS out there:

 

The Mentoring dedication ceremony will be live-streamed at www.emkinstitute.org. The EMK Institute opens to the public the next morning, on Tuesday, March 31.

Hi Patti...Met you at the Paradise Garage years ago. A man name Larry Levan introduced me to you. He was the resident DJ at the Garage. You have grown and matured since the late 70's early 80's and I want to commend you on your Jazz Prowess... Sounding like Ella like that....Coming to see you at the Minnesota Orchestra Hall in June. Hey speaking of mentorology? there is a young lady that sounds exactly like Billie in this state. Hope I can hand you her CD. If you ever perform a set featuring Ella, Billie and Sarah...Be sure to invite a Billie Holiday singing machine named Thomasina Petrus to sing Billie Holiday for you. I guaranty this voice will surprise you. No one in the world right now can touch it. worth listening to...surely your "Over My Shoulder Foundation" can do something with her. We have to keep our legacies alive. Like the Symphonies and Orchestras keep Mozart, Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff and Beethoven alive....its important Patti...

Great piece. I've mentored for many years. The wonderful thing about mentoring is, you learn as much as you teach and share.
