Product description

This work is a collection of stories designed to engage, inspire and transform the listener and the reader. Some of the stories motivate, some are spiritual, and some provide strategies for excellence. All set out to promote positive feelings, encouraging confidence, direction and vision. The stories contained in "The Magic of Metaphor" focus on values, responsibility, and leadership in all its forms. They have been specially selected to promote change in people's ideas, attitudes, beliefs, visions and behaviours. These stories act as reframes, challenging and disturbing our existing frames of reference, recharting our accustomed maps of the world, and shifting us away from our limited thinking towards new learning and discovery through the use of effective metaphor. As a result, we are encouraged to understand our world from a new perspective, and are provided with powerful ways to generate greater choice in our lives. Containing 16 suggestions (or tips) for effective storytelling, advice on organization, style and storytelling skills, and a selection of stories that can be adapted and developed, this work is a sourcebook for counsellors, health workers, psychologists, professional speakers, managers, leaders and NLP practitioners, as well as for teachers, trainers, therapists.

This is just one of those books that will keep you smiling from start to finish. Full of precious jewels. Brilliant. I have this funny feeling that Nick Own the author is actually Richard Bandler. Anyway, who every penny and more.

Review quote

"The Magic of Metaphor is one of the most richly rewarding books I have read in a very long time - every page you turn brings a new revelation, a new insight, a new understanding, in a simple and beautiful way. Images come tumbling out, and with them truths about ourselves: who we are, what we are, and most importantly, how the tools we need for life are to be found within each and every one of us." Richard Reed - Better Business
