TetraMap is Edgy
Six edges to be exact (when folded up into a tetrahedron). The tetrahedron is TetraMap's competitive edge: Edgy-ness is an excellent metaphor that reflects: risk - standing on the precipice - being provocative, a little confronting even.
- Reduce Conflict - Each face of the tetrahedron shares edges with each and every other face. This illustrates how everything affects everything - inter-dependence - and provides a tool to explore ALL points of view, not just the conflicting ones.
- Provoke Creativity - It's easiest to focus on the Elemental faces, consider however the edges where the Elements blend and blur. Exploring these blury regions often spark the need for deeper conversations and blended solutions.
- Supercede Best Practice - Rather than making your future dependent on someone else's best practice, use TetraMap to develop your own expertise in next practice. TetraMap and the tetrahedron give you that edge in our world of constant change.
- Shift Mindsets Outside the Box - Thankfully, TetraMap is NOT a four-quadrant behavioural model based on opposites which puts people in boxes. TetraMap is an intuitive framework of relationships that can be applied not just to behaviour but also to the nature of teams, planning, sales & service, performance, leadership... in fact, any system!
Bucky said, The tetrahedron is the minimum and simplest structural system in Universe. Organisations are systems and it makes sense to try and understand them in terms of their natural building blocks!
