I have used TetraMap for the past 10 years in coaching situations when the client is blocked and cannot see why someone they work with is being challenging. I have also used it in training programmes to aid communication and resolve conflict. Delegates find it a valuable tool; whether they are based in Morocco or Manchester it resonates with them.
