I’ve spent this past week at Pearl Harbor doing a 4-day training called “Leadership With Aloha.” It’s one of my favorite sessions because it combines leadership and management concepts with Hawaiian values and culture. We cover almost every topic imaginable for managers including delegation, communication, team-building, conflict resolution, developing trust, time management and motivation. Linking these topics in a meaningful way to concepts of the ahupua’a, konohiki, aloha, laulima and pono are incredibly rewarding for me.
Mahalo as always to Mark, Andrea and Donna for all your help in making this course possible. Thanks to all the participants for keeping it lively and exciting–especially you, Gino! Also, fa’afetai tele to you, Lua, for the ulu recipe! Ono!
