Team communication and development

We transform the way teams work together by facilitating team alignment programmes that break down barriers, open up communication channels, unlock creativity, and generate trust. ​

We use TetraMap® as a basis for our facilitated workshops. This nature-based framework builds on the four classical elements of earth, water, air and fire and nature a metaphor to describe different preferences, perspectives and priorities, teams have a shared language and a safe way of exploring how they work together.

Participants each complete a TetraMap® profile to identify their individual elemental preferences and those of colleagues. Working as a team, we then use this understanding to explore what the results mean for the team, it affects communication and relationships both within and outside the team, and how they can be more effective as a team. Depending on the needs of the group, as TetraMap® can be used as a basis for developing a shared team vision, values and objectives.
