TIO has opened its doors to two young achievers from Alice Springs to help build leaders of the future.
For first time the company extended its sponsorship of the Alice Springs Desert Leadership program and invited Monica Quan and Nathan McAuliffe to participate in its three-day leadership program in Darwin.
TIO Chief Executive Richard Harding said the company wanted to build confidence in the community and support its future leaders.
“Desert Knowledge Australia presents us with a new and unique opportunity to engage future leaders and encourage them to make a difference in the Territory,” Mr Harding said.
“The program aims to help them foster their development and capabilities.”
Monica Quan, who is a Camera Person and Editor at Imparja Television, said the TIO leadership program encouraged her to face her fears.
“I learnt you that can make meaningful change in small steps,” Ms Quan said.
“TIO has cultivated a culture that questions itself, the way it does things and to challenge the status quo, which is important for any leader.”
Nathan, who is a plumber with Ingkerreke Commercial, added that the skills he learnt during the program relate to all areas of life.
“You can relate and apply leadership to your family situation, your footy team or your workplace and make a choice to make it a good environment – it’s about the positive role we play,” he said.
Monica and Nathan are both part-way through their one-year intensive leadership program with ASDL.
The Alice Springs Desert Leadership program aims to build the next generation of leaders by equipping participants with the knowledge to make.
TIO has been a sponsor of the program since April 2013
