Resina Katafono

Resina Katafono is the Millennium Development Goals/Sustainable Development Goals Adviser at the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat and was one of the participants at the recent Pacific Regional Leadership Initiative held in March at Natadola, Fiji. For Resina attending the four day event was a learning experience, “I found it very interesting, the methodology was new and effective because the facilitators  were using  the adaptive leadership approach to deliver the course.”

She said that the exercises she participated in during the Initiative prompted her to look at some of the challenges she faced and how she can use the adaptive leadership approach to solve them, “One of the new skills I  learnt is  to observe, sometimes you are so involved in the challenges you need to step back and observe and the other concept is losses- that there are losses for all the stakeholders in the work we do.”
