The Spirit of Māori leadership – by Selwyn Katene

The Spirit of Māori Leadership explores what leadership is. Selwyn Katene discusses different models and styles of Māori leadership, identifies the qualities and approaches of Māori leaders and describes 6 criteria to guide leaders in the making.

Analysing traditional and contemporary leaders, he unpicks what makes a good leader, shows the importance of strong relationships and strategic planning, and sets out a path for leaders of the future.

This book challenges the reader to become a leader motivated by a service ethos for others; to communicate it through thoughts, words and actions; and never to give up on making the vision happen.
