Leadership Week starts off with a Storm

Leadership Week is an exciting opportunity to share and tell stories to inspire young New Zealanders to believe they can achieve anything.

Leadership Week is an exciting opportunity to share and tell stories to inspire young New Zealanders to believe they can achieve anything.

Today, The Sir Peter Blake Trust and The Learning Hub have arranged for some of our, Coca-Cola Amatil New Zealand leaders, to join the 300plus inspirational leaders, in heading into local schools to participate in an inspirational conversation about leadership.

Last week, Storm Fuimaono from our Inwards goods team, kicked off the Dream Team visits by chatting to 31 of the school leaders at Green Meadows Intermediate School.

Storm spoke to the students about her background and her career journey to get to where she is today.

In their words, this is what they learnt from Storm; I'm sure they will resonate with you too:

1. Put in the mahi. 
A leader does not shy away from hard work - determine what it is you want and work, work, work your way towards it! Sometimes this means thinking outside the box, or taking your own lead. Storm did this by learning the systems at Coca-Cola so she could move up the ladder.

2. Check your influences.
You become who you spend your time with - for this reason, surround yourself with people that you respect, admire and people who inspire you! 

3. Find your direction.
By the time you have finished school, you might not have figured out what your path is - this is okay! Research, keep an open mind and explore your talents.
