O le ala i le pule, o le tautua (The pathway to authority is through service)
The Le Tautua 2018 Pasifika leadership programme will be held over 4 full day workshops, between June and October 2018. Participants will experience a transformative leadership journey with a focus on the contemporary execution of traditional values in practice – in clinical, cultural, and community contexts. This is strengthened by connecting with an established Le Tautua Alumni group, and complemented with opportunities for coaching, mentoring and further upskilling.
Le Tautua generates exceptional outcomes for participants across a broad range of workplace and community environments.
Le Tautua participants are Pasifika workers in the health and disability workforce - with particular focus on those currently working in the mental health, addiction or public health sector. Participants will be from DHBs, non-government organisations, and primary care organisations. They will have the motivation to move to the next level in their career pathway and personal leadership journey, and the curiosity to discover how cultural intelligence can be harnessed to achieve this. Potential candidates come with an open mind to be supported with a journey of self-discovery and be stretched outside their comfort zone.
This year, Le Va celebrates the tenth anniversary of the programme, with nearly 100 Pasifika health and disability workers successfully completing the programme. Over this time we’ve had the opportunity to analyse, research, refresh, scrutinize, evolve and draw upon world leading theory and methods in leadership development. Contemporary leadership with Pasifika cultural reference points is not a tidy toolkit or theory – Le Tautua reflects how leading in this complexity requires practical application of real-world experience. Past participants are our testimony:
