This is my pepeha which is a Māori traditional tribal saying that expresses our connection to significant landmarks of our tribal area. It tells a story that I descend from our ancestral canoe of Horouta, which carried my ancestors over the Pacific Ocean to the East coast of the North Island in Aotearoa.
I’ve been working with the TetraMap model for about two years now. As I deepen my understanding of TetraMap and connect the dots to my other passions, I find myself drawn to the connections between diversity, psychological safety and TetraMap.
As someone who has worked in a range of company cultures and industries, the subject of psychological safety fascinates me. Like many people, when I look at my career so far, I can pinpoint environments and occasions where I have had an active voice and those where I chose to be less vocal because it didn’t seem as though my voice would count.
