use everything to grow

This is good even though it is bad. News that an internal investigation into leaked information from Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu has begun is important. Tribal politics can mean that loyalties are stretched in directions unanticipated. Where does that loyalty lie - whanau, hapu, marae, iwi? If you work for the office you must maintain high standards of privacy and professionalism. I hope there is no witchhunt but rather this investigation is used to strengthen and increase knowledge and learning. Tribal politics will not go away - it is just the way we are.

from ODT
"Ngai Tahu has launched an internal investigation following a serious leak of personal staff information.
In a statement to the Otago Daily Times, Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu chief executive Anake Goodall confirmed an internal investigation had begun after a "serious breach of personal staff information".
Mr Goodall said the breach went against the "behaviour that we expect from each other".
The ODT understands group employee information was sent anonymously to several iwi members, who then alerted management.
"The disclosure of this information exposes the Te Runanga Group, the person who released it and anyone who passes the information on to potential legal sanctions," Mr Goodall and Ngai Tahu kaiwhakahaere (chairman) Mark Solomon said earlier to iwi members."
Good luck with sorting this out.
