Whakapapa. You belong here.

Whakapapa is a Maori idea which embodies our universal human need to belong. It represents a powerful spiritual belief – that each of us is part of an unbroken and unbreakable chain of people who share a sacred identity and culture.

Owen Eastwood places this concept at the core of his methods to maximise a team’s performance. In this book he reveals, for the first time, the ethos that has made him one of the most in-demand Performance Coaches in the world.

In Belonging, Owen weaves together insights from homo sapiens’ evolutionary story and ancestral wisdom. He shines a light on where these powerful ideas are applied around our world in high-performing settings encompassing sport, business, the arts and military.

Aspects of Owen’s unique approach include: finding your identity story; defining a shared purpose; visioning future success; sharing ownership with others; understanding the ‘silent dance’ that plays out in groups; setting the conditions to unleash talent; and converting our diversity into a competitive advantage.
