Leadership Forum – Term 1, 2023 – Session 1
March 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Continuing from our NZEALS 2022 conference theme of Tūrangawaewae: a place to stand, our overall theme for NZEALS 2023 leadership forums is
Standing with awareness: knowing and Being your self, as you lead.
Whaowhia te kete mātauranga
Fill the basket of knowledge.
NZEALS leadership forums are a space to Be, to think together, to share each other’s experience across the sectors of education, and to grow our awareness of our self as we explore leadership issues and potential.
In Term 1 we start the year by acknowledging the extreme issues faced by many educational leaders, particularly in areas affected by Cyclone Gabrielle, and learning from post-earthquake leadership experience in Christchurch.
Mā mua ka kite a muri, mā muri ka ora a mua
Those who lead give sight to those who follow, those who follow give life to those who lead.
Topic for this Session and the Session at 7pm
Leadership in times of turmoil
Here we look at the ‘leader within’, and consider what is important at ‘our place’. We discuss the effects of trauma and learn from post-earthquake experience in Christchurch.
