2026 YES Management Training Program Registration Opens July 8

Posted By: Tom Morrison Community,

Every year, MTI always receives rave reviews from Members on how its annual YES Management Training Program is transforming the lives and abilities of executives in the heat treating industry.  Executives in the program learn incredible methodologies of strategic thinking, operations, workplace culture, and how to approach change; taking this knowledge back to the plant and helping turn MTI Member companies into high-performing teams.

Individuals state that they love the program because it takes a 360-degree view of your life, both professionally and personally.  Many who have been in some of the best executive training programs available have stated, “the YES Management Training program is the best executive management training program in all of manufacturing.”

The YES Management Training Program is a 10-month program where 45 MTI Member owners, executives, and managers of "all" ages attend 4 training sessions. Sessions 1, 3, and 4 provide intensive and engaging training by The Corps Group, in the areas of building high-performing teams, systems management, leadership, and dealing with change in your business. 

Session 2 provides interactive training on emotional intelligence in the workplace, people skills, and a creative roundtable session.  

Participants are required to complete the Heat Treat Quality Specialist Certificate Program on the MTI Online Academy, as well as the Keys to Supervisory Skills.  

Over the 10 months, participants build an incredible network of peers who will become friends for life. The program also includes plant tours of local MTI Members that are located in and around the area of the hosting city. 

The YES program is for any MTI company with an employee who is aiming for the next level in his/her personal growth within the company. Without question, these four sessions are guaranteed to transform the lives of those that participate.
