Leadership Fiji has today announced their new partnership with Kontiki Finance Limited and are very
excited to welcome Kontiki to their family of partners.
Kontiki Finance Limited is a Fijian majority owned company established in 2015 to provide Fijians with
competitive and accessible financing for both consumers and Small to Medium size businesses. As a
business, they understand that great leaders empower others, exhibit humility, possess self-awareness,
stay authentic, garner credibility, focus on relationship-building, present themselves as constant and
consistent, become role models and are fully present.
Part of growth as a leader involves asking questions about how to best delegate tasks and lead different
groups of people. As they gain experience, they become more aware of their strengths and ask others
how they can best leverage them in challenging situations.
Barry Whiteside said, “We are excited to be Partners with Leadership Fiji as we acknowledge ‘Leadership’
is a management approach in helping set strategic goals for an organisation, while motivating individuals
within a group to successfully carry out projects and assignments in service to those goals. Kontiki
Finance continues to nurture and develop staff by rewarding and remunerating above market rate and
compensating hard work based on job performance.”
