Short description of the topic
Come experience ways to deepen your coaching and to increase insights for your clients with the elegance of using metaphors. You will learn the ‘magic question” that always evokes a metaphor and other tools to assist your clients in deepening and broadening their learning to overcome obstacles to creating the life they want and the future that are wanting to design. Metaphors help clients, know what was unknown before, and use the power of the unconscious in creative and transformational ways.
Metaphors are frequent in most conversations but are often under appreciated and under utilized in change mastery and personal and business development. Those in the profession of Coaching will find that learning to use metaphors on purpose energizes their work with clients and gives new methods, techniques, and applications for increasing client awareness and choices for changing behaviour as well as new learning of what they did not know before.
In this webinar series you will learn:
- How to listen for metaphors in your coaching conversations
- Steps to elicit metaphors for creativity in problem solving

- When and how to use guided imagery as tool for creativity
