Ngahuru, kura kai, kura tangata – ‘Harvest-time, wealth of food, the wealth of people’

We coach, develop and work alongside leaders and teams to shift ideas on leadership and provide the skills and tools needed to grow teams.

As we transition into Ngahuru/Autumn, we find ourselves amidst a time of change and adaptation. As nature sheds its her colours in preparation for the colder months ahead, we are prompted to reflect on our own transitions.

Ngahuru symbolises the season of harvest and serves as a reminder of the cyclical nature of existence. It encourages us to embrace change through these transitional months.

This season invites us on a journey of introspection and adaptation. It urges us to acknowledge the inevitability of change and empowers us to find strength in the face of uncertainty, making space for new growth and opportunities.

As we head towards winter, it’s important to prioritise our well-being. The leaner months ahead can be challenging, so here are a few ways to exercise self-care during this season:

Prioritize Rest – Taha Hinengaro

As the days grow shorter and the nights longer, prioritise rest and rejuvenation. Ensure you’re getting enough sleep each night and carve out time for relaxation and downtime.

Nourish Your Body – Taha Tinana

Fuel your body with nourishing foods that support your immune system and overall health. Stay hydrated to combat the dryness that often accompanies colder weather.

Cultivate Gratitude – Taha Wairua

Take time each day to reflect on the things you’re grateful for. Cultivating an attitude of gratitude can help shift your perspective and foster a sense of contentment and fulfillment, even during challenging times.

Connect with Others – Taha Whānau

It’s important to stay connected with friends, family, and colleagues. Reach out to loved ones regularly, whether it’s through virtual meetups, phone calls, or handwritten letters, and lean on your support network for guidance and encouragement.

Wishing you all a season filled with warmth, growth, and abundance.
