Playing with the Power of Metaphors with Lyssa deHart, LICSW, MCC

Metaphors are all around us; they flow through the daily rhythm of our conversations. Unless they are wildly obvious, we may miss them. Join this fun webinar and learn to play with the power of visual language. 

John Geary said, “Whenever we describe anything abstract: ideas, feelings, thoughts, emotions, concepts, we instinctively resort to metaphors”

Discover the neuroscience of metaphors. Metaphors light up the brain of the person who uses them and they can be used to create outcomes, give clarity of distance, as well as support deep transformation. 

Learning to use the metaphors that your clients bring to the conversation is far more powerful than scripting your metaphors into the coaching conversation. Metaphors are vivid doorways into who your clients are being, their deeply held beliefs, their vision of themselves and their sense of what they want. This awareness can give you a powerful tool to get curious with greater ease. 

Key Takeaways


1.     The differences between Metaphors and Similes.

2.     Neuroscience + Metaphors.

3.     The power of using the Metaphors that your clients bring to your coaching conversations.

Participants will earn 1.5 Core Competency CCEs for attending.
