Adaptive Leadership challenges Pacific thinking style
Myron Williams is a familiar face in Fiji and the region as a former television journalist. He is now the Communications Coordinator with Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Organisations (PIANGO) and a participant at the Pacific Regional Leadership Initiative (PRLI) which got underway at the Warwick Fiji this morning.
The four day event is the second module of the year long program developed by PLP in collaboration with Cambridge Leadership Associates (CLA). The first was held in March 2015 during which participants were introduced to the concept of Adaptive Leadership, a range of diagnostic and management tools for organisational or social change.
“New and interesting,” is how Myron described the first module, “It challenged the Pacific and Fiji style of thinking and doing things. Initially it was difficult but once we took things into context it all made sense,” he added.
Myron is joined by more than 30 participants from the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Secretariat of the Pacific Community, University of the South Pacific, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme, Forum Fisheries Agency, Pacific Disability Forum, Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Organisations and Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation.
“Like my colleagues I am looking forward to this module and in particular the self assessment session. In terms of my expectations, I am being open minded,” Myron said with a smile.
