A process consultant, facilitator and trainor in curriculum with over 20 years of experience, Ms. Tayko is an expert in designing and managing programs and services in the field of human and organization development. She developed a set of “thinking through tools” called Whole Brain Literacy, which was based on the four-brain model of Lynch and applied it in many types of teaching-learning-planning-organizing sessions.
Her overseas engagement was expanded and was made more significant when she designed a masteral program in Organization Development (OD) for Assumption University of Thailand in 1994. With a mere 15 volunteers from the International Organization Development Association, she was able to sustain the OD program that produced 400 graduates with Masteral degree in 1997 and 46 holders of Doctoral degree in 2006. Aside from Thailand, she had served as Director of the OD programs in Brunei, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Indonesia, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and the Philippines.
