The aim of this wānanga (seminar/course) is to provide an introduction to leadership through the holistic learning environment, from a Te Ao Māori perspective.

This wānanga emphasises the importance of reciprocal learning between Tauira (students/trainees) and VHNZ, creating a platform for shared engagement. This fosters a sense of empowerment, self-discovery, and personal growth for Tauira. By tapping into their unique strengths and potential, Tauira can reignite their passion for learning and apply the knowledge gained in their workplace and within their whānau (family) unit.
