Weaving a new future

Blair, Ngarimu

New Zealand Management;Jul2011 Leadership Supplement, p21
The article discusses the application of leadership in Maori. It points out that it Rangatira or chief must be someone who can weave groups of complementary people together and leaders must be capable of operating politically and tactically to advance an action within a broader strategic goal. It notes that the difference between Maori and non-Maori leadership is the concept of whakahihi which does not admire conceit or boastfulness. It cites the need for Maori organisations to achieve an economic strength and political links to make them a potent force.
