The power of metaphors

Metaphors are powerful in speech and language. They unlock fixed ideas and expand meanings and help develop our thoughts.

When we speak in metaphors and use analogies we communicate ideas more easily, often clarifying our own thoughts at the same time.

Tip: Listen for the metaphors people use and expand on them to build instant connection with others.

As a coach, notice and echo metaphors to explore thoughts, dig beneath the surface and help others create awareness that will lead to new possibilities, choices and options.
