Using Metaphors in Coaching 

We will address the use of metaphor in coaching.  Participants will provide examples of the successful use of metaphor in guiding coaching clients towards insight.  Coaches will also discuss how to introduce and establish metaphors that clients find helpful.  Another area of inquiry will be the structure and pace of a coaching session and how metaphor can make a session more efficient and powerful.

Core Competencies to be addressed include—

--Coaching Presence
--Active Listening
--Powerful Questioning
--Creating Awareness
--Designing Actions
--Planning and Goal Setting
