Ehara taku toa I te toa takitahi. Engari, he toa takitini.
Success is not the work of one, but the work of many.
Like the ngahere, the people who we work alongside each play a specific role that contributes to the wider ecosystem of the impact we are trying to create. If one or two members of our team become burnt out, stressed, or disconnected, our mahi and relationships can be thrown off balance.
Te Pūaha Talks – Ngahere for Teams is the latest iteration of our wellbeing webinar series, brought to life by Tuihana Ohia and Louise Marra. The Ngahere for Teams series shares practices and resources to support your teams wellbeing and connection.
When you and your team give so much of yourselves to your kaupapa and community, without also nurturing the self, the ecosystem of our team and mahi no longer draws on fertile soil. The Ngahere for Teams practices acknowledges that we need to actively maintain our energy and wellbeing - and seeks to offer you holistic tools to help you and your team on that journey.
Ngahere for Teams runs over four online sessions, with each session introducing a new wellness practice that will include a whakataukī (significant quote or inspirational statement), honogoa and rongoā (a guidance, a process for your team connection), and a whakata (a reflection).
All your team needs to bring into the Ngahere space is their wisdom, humour, culture, and creativity.
Below is the Ngahere for Teams resource document along with the previous online zoom sessions. We invite you to try this practice with your team and see what works.
The next Ngahere for Teams webinar will be held on 1st February from 8.30am - 9.30am, registrations are open here.
Mauri tu, mauri ora.
