OTA-Schulich Executive Education Program Registration Opens

TORONTO — Ready to take the next step up the leadership ladder? The Ontario Trucking Association has announced the OTA-Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC) joint certificate program is now open for registration

Both of these one-day programs are designed to help participants build upon their business leadership skills by providing them with practical tools aimed at improving performance and driving business results.  

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.” His current client list includes more than half of the Fortune 500. This module is scheduled for July 30 and will be capped by a networking evening at a Toronto Blue Jays game.  To register for the Blue Jays event, or for more information, visit OTA Blue Jays Day for all the details.

Module 2 entitled, Critical Thinking for Leaders is being run by Dr. Brett Richards – considered the 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.

After successfully completing the two-part program, graduates will receive an OTA-Schulich co-branded certificate and a leadership development designation through the Schulich Executive Education Centre.

To sign up for the OTA-SEEC program, you can register here.

Programs from the SEEC could qualify for funding under the Canada-Ontario Job Fund, which was developed to help employers identify skills gaps and map out areas where employees need to develop so their companies can grow.

If you qualify, government funding will pay for two-thirds of training costs up to a maximum of $10,000 per individual working in Ontario. All employers must individually apply for the grant

You can visit the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities to apply or learn more about the Canada-Ontario Job fund

OTA also announced for people who would like to get involved with Next Generation activities, but are unable to commit the time needed for a formal education program, they can still network with peers and meet OTA board members.

The group will be having two workshop sessions at the OTA Spring Board Retreat which takes place on June 18-19 at the J.W. Marriott, The Rousseau Muskoka Resort. 

The workshops will be taking place on the first day of the board retreat, June 18 from 1pm-5pm. 

According to OTA, these unique, custom designed workshops will focus on two important aspects in leadership development:

Workshop 1:  Branding Yourself  

Workshop 2:  Aligning for Success
