Kiwis enjoy the “free spirit”
Strike up a conversation with a Kiwi and the outdoors would always be a part of what they will share, whether it’s the big trout they fished from the lake or the trip to the bush they highly desire for their family for a long time. Be adventurous so that you can share something to them too!
Everyone is equal
It’s important to keep in mind to extend the self-esteem and the civility that you expect for yourself. It’s not the job position that dictates your importance to the work place. It’s the person that matters.
Avoid being the “tall poppy”
Refrain from showing off because this will not do you any good. Stop being the Mr. Proud and Mr. Know-It-All
Thread on that Number 8 Wire line of thinking
This attitude is an analogy of the use of the Number 8 wire that is most commonly used to create mile long fences to keep of the cows and sheep inside the farm. They can make practically anything out of it - clothes hanger, a measuring stick, a stirrer, a magical wand, and a lot more other things. It simply means to be resilient, be creative, and be crafty. Rather than waiting for people to come over to help you, try to fix that stapler with something like a sticky tape or a blob of glue. If the printer is jammed with paper, try something – open it, scrutinize it, whack it a couple of times in order to get that thing fixed. If it doesn’t, then call the computer services. They would be very happy to know that you’ve done everything before giving them a call.
“Give yourself a Go” and let someone have a “Fair Go” too.
You will be admired by trying rather than whining. And when you are given an equal opportunity to prove yourself, try and give others and equal chance to prove and improve themselves too. This may probably be how New Zealanders envision their world to be and how they will achieve that pinnacle of success.
