Growing Pasifika Niu Leaders
The Growing Pasifika Niu Leaders programme is a combination of the best of CGL’s leadership expertise, the Pasifika “learning mat” methodology and creative poetry, creating a unique programme for emerging Pasifika leaders in the corporate sector.
Along with leadership theories and practices, the programme uses poetry as its primary tool of empowerment. Working with Selina Tusitala Marsh, each participant composes their own leadership poem over the course of the programme, choosing a metaphor that best represents their passions, energies, and identities.
Participants build leadership capability in a way that encourages them to embrace their Pasifika culture and heritage
The course connects Pasifika people sharing a similar leadership journey in a range of different organisations and industries
Participants tell of feeling empowered, and winning promotion and recognition
77% of managers believed their team member was applying their learning from the programme either effectively or very effectively
The programme runs over 10 months and includes 10 face-to-face workshops. Between workshops, participants seek to apply what they’ve learnt in their workplace and meet to reflect on their learning and coach each other on implementing new skills and tools.
