Item description for More Magic of Metaphor: Stories for Leaders, Influencers And Motivators by Nick Owen...
This sequel to the best-selling The Magic of Metaphor explores the power of storytelling to inspire, inform, and transform people's lives. With a particular emphasis on leadership in the very broadest sense of the word, the stories in this collection offer inspiration, inner knowledge, and wisdom. Stories and metaphors are incredibly powerful vehicles through which real change and compassion can be generated in the world, and can be used to influence, motivate, and lead others with elegance and integrity. If you are in business or work in a professional situation, imagine if your staff were to share the same vision, direction, and values that you do---how much easier would it be to push for your goals, and create powerful and favorable impressions on your clients and your peers? Your group would be operating as one, moving with confidence and commitment towards a set of common goals. If you are an educator, how much more satisfying would your teaching be---both for you and your students---if you were able to: --Explain ideas more easily, more memorably, and more powerfully? --Create an environment to which all your students wanted to contribute and belong? --Motivate your students with a desire for life long learning?

A must for the toolkit of leaders, trainers and therapists Jun 9, 2005
As a consultant and counsellor / therapist I cannot underestimate the value of the use metaphor in influencing, training and learning and this book is a fantastic source for that. It goes with me everywhere. Nick has collected some wonderful, thought provoking and emotional stories that will make you think, laugh, cry and I guarantee it will affect who you might work with similarly. Not only that, but the stories are cleverly woven into an overarching story supported by opportunities to develop different perspectives through the application of two wonderful world theories. Anyone that works with others in developing learning or understanding will gain from this book. It's in my top 5!
