Cultural Supervision Framework - Saturday1 December 1:15pm - 4:15pm  

Workshop with George Kingi 
For over a decade George Kingi has worked with Indigenous communities in the Youth and Social Service sectors and worked alongside communities utilising strength-based approaches, culturally grounded interventions, mentoring and cultural supervision.

George says "What I have come to know is that the more they/we discover about ourselves and how we fit into the world, the clearer our pathways are towards making positive change"

 George  developed a Maori leadership programme, cultural supervision framework and more recently Mauri Tau (Indigenous mindfulness praxis) that all are all grounded in matauranga Maori (Maori knowledge). He will be facilitating a session on Mauri Tau - a process utilising ancient narratives related to a journey of obtaining knowledge, knowing and understanding oneself and relationships to the complex ecologies.

The aim of his workshop is to explore the Cultural Supervision Framework, expand understanding on Maori concepts, gain understanding of the core principals of the framework and what it looks like in practice and reflection on your own values and worldviews.

Leadership in Mentoring Masterclass

Saturday 1 December 1:15pm - 4:15pm
Workshop with Marg Cranney

Mentoring is one of the most effective ways to develop leadership skills and knowledge. In this masterclass designed for experienced mentors and mentees, you will be learn and be engaged in techniques that can easily be used in mentoring partnerships to develop leadership capabilities for both mentors and mentees.

Whether the mentee is looking for more leadership of self, in their career or in communities, mentoring can provide time, expertise and insight into effective communication, advocacy, representation, diplomacy, influence, networks and accountability.

When a mentor works with a mentee through values clarification, visioning, leadership scenarios and events, they naturally reflect on their own behaviour and leadership styles.

In this workshop we will focus on using : - appreciative enquiry to develop leadership skills, inspire vision and create goals - the Karman Drama Triangle to increase self -awareness and maintain healthy relationships - advocacy plans to support leadership goals

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop you will: • understand how to use strengths-based approaches to explore and develop leadership aspirations in mentoring relationships • appreciate the importance of modelling leadership skills and behaviours in your mentoring partnerships • have new mentoring tools to use in exploring leadership in your mentoring partnerships
