This workbook was written after two Auckland CLD initiatives partnered with Inspiring Communities to trial a Leaderful Communities Workshop process. Called Me Mahi Tahi Tātou – Working Together, it explored community leadership as well as how to build collaborative leadership skills and capacity.
A number of insights were identified over the four sessions which have formed the workbook Me Mahi Tahi Tātou:
- It is important to be invited to a workshop by someone who is known and trusted
- Diverse backgrounds and experiences brought diverse expectations
- Common aspirations include learning new skills, gaining a better understanding about leadership and meeting others from their communities in similar situations.
- Using lots of local examples helps make it real for people
Inspiring Communities Publication, Learning by Doing has a chapter dedicated to Leading in and leaderful communiites
