After being challenged by a kuia one day, about her responsibility in leadership, Erana knew that leadership and helping people was something of a superpower that she needed to use!
Growing up Erana’s mother would always ensure that her children would practice affirmations as a way to check in with themselves and positively reframe situations around them. This was something that Erana thought everyone knew about and did, and perhaps for some it was. However, fast forward to being a leader those skills of being able to check in with herself and positive look at situations is a skill that she is grateful to have instilled within her!
Erana also shares how she likes to lead from a place of aroha, which she says is basic but absolutely necessary! For her, it’s never about the leader at the top and the rest falling below, no, it’s about all of us as equals being able to do our mahi from a place of mana to contribute to the overall team!
