What is it about?

As an Indigenous people Maori know a lot about collective leadership as we have continuity of experience through the aeons. We highlight that to truly be collective in leadership means building a community where everyone can express leadership according to situations and expertise, of working the tensions that inevitably arise, having a transmittable enduring knowledgeable code and strengthening ties of affection between people. Importantly collective leadership is in service of a purpose that changes conditions for the better, for people and for the environment. This form of leadership builds on the previous generations - "success is succession", and is thus very different to the "new broom sweeps clean" approach of many leaders today.
