Trained in TetraMap in 2016, I have found it invaluable to aid understanding in teams. TetraMap has enabled me personally, as well as my clients to build better and stronger relationships to enhance their workplaces. Using nature as a metaphor, and for delegates and coaches to step away from the day-to-day, enhances their own knowledge of themselves, as well as how to work more productively with others. I have found TetraMap to be transformational in relation to team and family dynamics and conflict.
I use also TetraMap in culturally diverse talent programmes alongide the Iceberg model of culture for delegates to gain a deeper insight of how they can break down barriers and reach for the top.
As someone with a high fire and high earth preference, I like to try out new things and make them successful!
