OTA partners with Schulich Executive Education Centre

TORONTO, Ont. – The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) announced it has partnered with the Schulich Executive Education (SEEC) Centre today.

The partnership came as a result of the OTA’s successful Next Generation educational development program, now in its second year. The partnership provides a joint certificate program with the SEEC that will build on the skills acquired in the current Next Generation program.

The OTA-SECC program is based on two modules: “The Business Race Program” and “Critical Thinking for Leaders.”

Both of the programs are one-day sessions that will help attendees build upon their leadership skills with practical tools.

“The Business Race Program” will be led by Jeff MacInnis, a motivational leader who was once part of Canada’s National Ski team during the era of the Crazy Canucks. It is scheduled for July 30 and will be capped by a networking evening at a Toronto Blue Jays game.

“Critical Thinking for Leaders” is being run by Dr. Brett Richards – a leading global trainer in Effective Intelligence, a system designed to improve individual and team thinking skills and system wide collaboration. This session will be held in conjunction with OTA’s Executive Conference on Nov. 4.

The OTA also announced that at this year’s Executive Conference, OTA and SEEC will host a full day workshop entitled “Leaders Building Leaders” that will  enable senior leaders to impart their knowledge and skill sets to up-and-coming future leaders.  .
