In business, if your team were to share the same vision, direction, and values that you do, how much easier would it be to drive your business forward, and create powerful and favourable impressions on your clients? You and your entire team would be operating as one, moving with confidence and commitment towards a set of common goals. In education, 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? Our greatest teachers, artists, and leaders all use varieties of anecdote, story, parable, case history, and metaphor to put across their 'message' in powerful and highly memorable ways. This follow-up to Nick's best-selling Magic of Metaphor explores the power of story 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.
