MILTON, Ont. — The Young Leaders Group (YLG) of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) announced the launch of the PMTC’s ‘Driven to Lead’ program.
The new program, sponsored by KRTS Transportation Specialists and TransRep, is an experiential, practical leadership program that will take participants through hands-on and impactful exercises focusing on topics like culture, teamwork, accountability and strategy, the PMTC said. It is intended for both up-and-coming and current leaders who are looking to advance and develop their personal and professional skills.
The program will be facilitated by Eagle’s Flight (www.eaglesflight.com) at their facility in Guelph, Ontario. Eagle’s Flight is known as a global leader in education for their approach to delivering training programs that are business-relevant and invoke lasting behavioral change.

Graduates of the entire program (all four modules) will receive free registration for the PMTC’s annual conference in June 2019 where they will be presented with their diploma. Graduates of individual modules will receive a certificate of completion for the module(s) they complete.
