With studies showing workers are not leaving their companies, they are leaving their bosses, building effective leaders is an absolute must in today’s workforce. MTI’s YES program has been laser focused on graduating leaders who can make positive change within their companies to create a culture of change, innovation, service and purpose. The YES program combines plant tours, classroom learning, experiential exercises and networking to create an energizing learning experience. MTI CEO Tom Morrison stated at this most recent program, “It is amazing to see the growth in each of the individuals in the MTI YES program. Our process of focusing on not just professional development, but also personal development inspires each person to take the excitement and creative ideas learned during the program back to their companies.”

Every company who sends executives to the program feels it gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace because the program is teaching managers how to be effective leaders of people with focus on strategic thinking, building teams, how to communicate and present ideas. The demand for the program within MTI has been so great that the 2024 and 2025 classes are already sold out. If you would like more information on the MTI YES Management Training Program, CLICK HERE.
