Nuku Ora’s Leading Teams programme is based on the PUNA Leading Teams content.

This programme is aimed at improving the leadership capability of those who currently lead teams and/or are emerging leaders.

The 2023 programme included a te ao Māori focus on Leadership and te ao Māori culture helping to build a greater bi-cultural awareness and confidence to engage with tikanga and Māori leadership concepts.

The personality test was part of the programme fee as we recognise the importance for leaders to understand their own behaviours, actions and the impact on those around the at work.

Leading Teams provided participants with the tools to:

  • Create an effective team and taking diversity and inclusion into consideration
  • Convey organisational purpose and provide clarity to team members about their roles and the contribution they make
  • Ask questions, give constructive feedback, confidence to face challenges
  • Navigate complexity and understand the prioritisation of tasks and resources
  • Look to the future while also balancing ‘today’s needs’
  • Empower team members, setting clear expectations, milestones, and timeframes
  • Deliver effectively and efficiently and measure success
