Are you a people leader for the first time? This can be one of the most difficult transitions in your career. You’ll have some great skills already, but as you move into a people leader role, what will make you successful will be quite different.

The New People Leader (NPL) Development Programme helps you to identify the skills, behaviours, and mindset you need to succeed in your new role.

We have identified the seven most important development priorities for you to focus on in the first 12 months of the transition into your role. These priorities build on leadership characteristics and come from the Leadership Success Profile (LSP).

Mindset | Te tirohanga
Connect | Te whakawhanaungatanga
Purpose | Te whāinga
Achieve | Te whakatutuki
Feedback | Te aro whaiaro
Develop | Te whakawhanake
Processes | Ngā tukanga
