Synopsis

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 bestselling The Magic of Metaphor (click here to view title) 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. 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.

What are we called to do in our lives and how can we discover and express our personal and professional genius and purpose? Not easy questions but Nick has been struggling with and exploring them for himself and with others through his writing, editing, and storytelling, as well as in workshops, seminars and coaching sessions with individuals, educational institutions, professional bodies, organisations, and the arts for the last several decades. These days his primary professional passions catalyse around two areas. Firstly, the development of shared narratives that explore how schools, NGOs, and large organisations would do well to be more fully human, more self-organising and self-managing and less stuck in the old paradigms of autocracy, hierarchy, ego, power and control. Secondly, how can people entering the Third Act of their lives see their future less as a surrender into retirement and more as an opportunity to transition into a generative and creative period of contribution and personal exploration of their life's true purpose? In a whole variety of exciting ways, these two areas are both evolutionary and deeply interconnected.
