Playing with the Power of Metaphors

Uncover the beauty and power of metaphors in your coaching conversations through this engaging webinar. Metaphors are deeply woven into the fabric of our daily conversations, often ignored if not clearly obvious. Explore how visual language impacts your clients.

Renowned scholar John Geary famously said, “We instinctively resort to metaphors when describing anything abstract: ideas, feelings, thoughts, emotions, concepts.” Dive into the neuroscience of metaphors and comprehend how they illuminate our minds. Metaphors not only enhance our self-expression but also serve as potent tools for instigating outcomes, elucidating complexities, and fostering profound transformations.

Humans don’t use metaphors accidentally. Metaphors introduced by your clients can serve as powerful keys, unlocking their self-awareness and inner potential. By mastering the art of using our clients’ metaphors rather than interjecting your own, you can facilitate more meaningful and impactful conversations.

Metaphors provide vivid insights into your clients’ identities, deeply ingrained beliefs, self-perceptions, and aspirations. Understanding and utilizing these metaphorical expressions can offer a robust tool for fostering curiosity and facilitating deeper understanding. The course also includes a pre-recorded coaching demo to assess and augment your understanding of metaphors.

Join us on a journey into the power of metaphors today!

Is coaching making a difference in your organization?

In 2005, ICF Global adopted the PRISM Award.  The award epitomizes what professional coaching can accomplish in organizations at all levels.

PRISM Award recipients exemplify how coaching can develop an organization’s human capital by maximizing individuals’ potential and leading to high Return on Investment (ROI) and Expectations (ROE) from coaching interactions.

Lori Lipinski nominated the Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) which won the 2017 Prism award.

Kathy McCrum, former Director, Human Resources at the Refinery, says that the CRC’s coaching program was implemented to enhance leadership effectiveness.

I joined the ICF Prairie to find a community of coaches that could help me grow professionally and in my business. I volunteered to be a community support coach and then for a position on the board. I ended up with amazing friends and colleagues. Get involved, you have so much to gain!

Jackie McConaghy, CEC, PCC

I joined ICF Saskatchewan when I was new to the business of coaching. As a result, I have built lifelong relationships with colleagues interested and curious to learn and grow professionally and personally. Having worked solo for most of my career, these connections have been invaluable and inspiring. This, in addition to training and events, advertising benefits and opportunities to volunteer are why I continue my membership with ICF Sask.

Wendy Turner-Larsen, PCC

I joined the ICF Prairie Chapter to find a community of people to learn and grow with in my coaching journey. I found much more than I anticipated. I found a diverse group of extremely caring and professional people. This community has been essential to my growth as a coach and a human being over the last 4 years. It is because of the depth of experience and character in our members.

The call to action should be first to discover the benefit of a great community of people in our chapter. The second is that we aren’t meant to do life and business alone. There are lots of possibilities to learn and grow together and this chapter is one place to discover just that.

Jeff Lobb, ACC

I joined the ICF back in 2011. I was starting up my coaching business and desperately needed local colleagues. I found a wonderful community in the Prairie ICF group. As a matter of fact, a large number of the members became participants in my doctoral dissertation, and I am deeply grateful. My business has benefited from the networking and referrals making the membership fee easily pay for itself. Over a decade later, I am still happy to be part of the chapter, especially for the friendships.
