Te Reo Māori | English Team performance (Conversation set)

Use individual feedback to provide actionable outcomes that help achieve individual and team excellence.

 

You may be familiar with our Team performance conversation set. The team performance conversation set is suited for companies with teams that set objectives on a 3-monthly cycle. There are 12 questions that are asked on a 3-month rotation.

 

The great news is we’ve now collaborated with Maurea consulting to translate these conversations into Te Reo Māori to form a dual language conversation set. Together with Maurea consulting, we want to help people ignite their Māori Cultural Competency in a safe, fun and explorative way, making Māori culture accessible. With a history of working with large organisations in Aotearoa and leading change through their Te Kaa programme, Maurea consulting were a natural choice as a partner for Joyous.

 

Within this conversation set, you’ll still find all of the same categories and topics as
you would in the traditional Team performance set; however, questions will be presented with both their English and Te Reo Māori translations.

 

The intent of these dual-language conversations is to help people in Aotearoa positively identify with Māori culture. They will also help people who want to improve their Te Reo Māori as we are able to present the two languages side by side in Joyous.

 

Here is the full conversation set.
