Providing the right physical and psychic space is critical to creating highly functional teams and organisations.
As we move into a new season of opportunity, imagine what you could achieve with a commitment to spending 60% of your time crafting the ‘perfect’ learner experience. My new-style radio shows deliver far more satisfaction to me, and, more importantly to my audience.
I see TetraMap in action in every aspect of my day-to-day life. The number of AH-HA moments I have had on my learning journey has been incredible.
The biggest resource and tool is you the facilitator. My delivery approach includes three Māori practices: āta, ako and aro.
I see TetraMap as a powerful tool for engaging in early intervention and preventing a toxic work environment.
Our language, te reo Māori (the Māori language) often alludes to nature , to the elements, to the flora, to the fauna, to the sky and to the sea to describe the way we behave with and react to each other.
Participants regularly report that it is the most practical of all the skills we teach them and they go on to use it widely in their workplaces and personal relationships.
Returning to work after a week’s break I should have been feeling relaxed. I wasn’t.
I found the beauty of TetraMap® to be its possibilities to be inserted into or work together with other programs and tools which can help to strengthen whatever your expertise lays. For teambuilding facilitators, I urge you to explore new activities and new ways to debrief using TetraMap®. written by Vivien Hui, Certified TetraMap Facilitator, Essentia, Hong Kong .

I have been speaking on platform for almost 20 years but I only came across program design 7 years ago. The first person who taught me program design was my teacher and mentor, Blair Singer, who was a student of Marshall Thurber, the creator of the program “Money & You”. The key takeaway from Blair was that good program design requires us to explore different ways to help the participants to maximise the learning in the room.

How often is the cause of the problem identified? Are workplace mistakes spoken about, or silently ignored? Could future disasters be prevented? No-one wants to look ignorant, incompetent, or negative. Is there enough trust and respect in the team for people to openly say “I goofed, I screwed up, I’m concerned about…”? When things go wrong, is there a focus on learning from mistakes?

“Metaphors aren’t true. But they’re useful. That’s why professionals use them to teach, to learn and to understand. A metaphor takes what we know and uses it as a lever to understand something else.” Seth Godin, Writer, Marketer, Blogger

TetraMap is not exactly rocket science – but it does help make those hard to master soft skills a whole lot easier to learn and understand. After all, today’s catch-phrase is ‘simplify’ not ‘complexify’!
6-3-18 by Nita Kerepeti-Ikin, a Certified TetraMap Facilitator and Administrator for Te Paepae Arahi; a kaupapa Maori health organisation.
Nita’s poem reaches to the heart of TetraMappers celebrating the warmth and spirit that demonstrates Fire and Water at its very best. When Nita was asked about who inspired her I was also inspired to learn about Waireti Walters who was an outstanding and remarkable Maori health worker who was also a Certified Facilitator.

TetraMap provides a framework to decode behaviour. With most behavioural instruments, brain theory reinforces our approach, but recent findings from the field of neuroscience challenge the labels we’ve relied on – left brain / right brain. There are some giant chasms between the reality of the research and the language we’ve been using to describe and explain behaviour in terms of brain activity – and it’s doing us a disservice.
