TetraMap was introduced to me in 2015 by Tetra Map Master Facilitator in Singapore, Raymond Yap. As I reflect on my personality and behaviours today I can see how my Elemental preference (Water) helps me to connect with others to achieve the outcomes and goals desired (be it facilitation or consultancy work). Elements (Earth/Fire) has helped me significantly too in my career to ensure I continue to share new possibilities and ideas with my organization to get the right things done at the right time. Tetra Map has offered me a new perspective to understanding self and life and is gradually internalizing within me.
