Worker Participation Through Māori Leadership
This literature review examines the various leadership styles and theories, particularly focusing on Māori leadership styles and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) leadership styles. The purpose of this study is to highlight the importance of these different leadership approaches working together in order to achieve optimal outcomes for organisations. Through an analysis of existing literature, it becomes clear that there are significant gaps between traditional Western leadership models and indigenous leadership styles such as those practised by Māori leaders. Furthermore, there are also gaps between OHS leadership practices and other types of organisational leadership. These gaps can lead to a lack of understanding and communication between leaders from different backgrounds and can hinder progress towards achieving shared goals. Therefore, by recognising the value of diverse perspectives and incorporating them into leadership practices, organisations can benefit from more inclusive decision-making processes that take into account the needs of all stakeholders. Ultimately, this study emphasises the need for ongoing research into effective cross-cultural leadership practices in order to promote collaboration across different sectors and communities.
