Want help tackling a specific problem at your station?
After a successful first round in 2023, our TAKE IT ON Leadership Mentoring program is back in 2024.
The program will last for 10 weeks, from March to Mid May, and consists of weekly mentor meetings and personalised online learning resources.
The entire experience will be customised to YOU, the mentee. Time commitments will be adapted to your schedule, your mentor will be assigned based on your needs, and content will be delivered based on your specific goals.
The program is especially beneficial to those managing upcoming projects - whether it’s a fundraising campaign, a studio refit, or inducting a new board, the weekly mentor meetups and training resources can help you make a plan and stay on track.
Last year’s TAKE IT ON participants include:
Jasmine - SYN Media Social Enterprise Manager, focused on developing a new business plan and revised sales targets,
“Over a 6-week period, with Dave's guidance, I was able to exceed the previous year's benchmarks, securing double the revenue for next year. This outcome boosted my confidence and helped me recognise my professional strengths and what I was capable of achieving with a step-by-step formula.”
Matched with mentor Dave - Triple RRR Station Manager, the partnership was beneficial for both,
“I really enjoyed it… and feel like I was able to add some value for her in terms of moral support and confidence.” - Dave, Triple RRR
“Dave provided tangible solutions that aided with decision making and strategic project planning.” - Jasmine, SYN Media
“This really gave me a great overview of the industry and how all the pieces fit together. I now have contacts and a better understanding of how to get the help we will need going forward.”
Amanda is a new Station Manager at Wild Horse FM in regional Queensland. Matched with Ren - 3MDR Engagement Coordinator, they were able to begin the station’s licence renewal process,
“... without Ren, this process would have been much slower and laborious.” - Amanda, Wild Horse FM
A volunteer at Radio 2RDJ in Sydney’s Inner West, Vivian was paired with Nat - 3MDR Station Manager - and developed knowledge of her role in the station’s programming committee and avenues to fundraise.
The success of the 2023 TAKE IT ON Leadership Mentoring program is a great indicator of the growth that is possible for participants.
