Tipu Ake ki te Ora – Organic Leadership Model for Innovative Organisation
In 2013, when my partner and I visited a tiny school and Mauri community in the midst of the New Zealand Whiriaki rainforest, we had many questions. How did this school transform itself in a few short years in the 90’s from an educational disaster to the top of its class in New Zealand still today? Why was this school attracting Peter Goldsbury of the Aukland University of Technology (AUT) and world renowned scientists such as Dr. Ille Gebershuber, Austrian Physicist? Thanks to Chris Eketoni, a Mauri co-leader and co-initiator and the Te Whaiti Nui-a-Toi School for giving us the privilege of conveying as best we can, the sacred meaning of the Tipu Ake Leadership Model.
