Getting from one place to another
Most of the questions we receive when we are invited to work with leaders, teams and organizations are about getting from one place, state or position to another.
They are about change, transition or progress. They are about movement metaphors.
Individuals and teams want to:
So we design workshops and interventions that are able to visualize movement.
digg into their dynamics
get out of a conflict
- deepen relations
move towards an ambitious goal
move away from an old situation
stop with inhibiting habits
pick up on new trends
go up the career ladder
get out of the dark
Getting a perspective on perspectives
Most problems have become so complex that we believe that the single right answer to a complex problem is an illusion.
We need collective intelligence to get a firm grasp on what reality actually is.
Our interventions and workshops are therefore designed to visualize a wide array of perspectives on reality.
Getting guidance by principles
When perspectives open and (limiting) beliefs are acknowledged, new space unfolds to make the desired movement.
In our experience it is crucial that in this new and open territory you devise a smart way to navigate.
We believe that the best way to achieve this is by formulating Simple Guiding Principles or devising a new powerful metaphor.

Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space...
Metaphors We Live By (George Lakoff & Mark Johnson) defines metaphors in the most graceful way: “The essence of metaphor is understanding and experiencing one kind of thing in terms of another.”
And that is exacly why we love to work with your metaphors for life, work and leadership.
Because most of our thought processes are unconscious, invisible and seldomly put into words, metaphors are a unique tool to show us the full perspective into how someone thinks, feels and experiences their world.
Understanding our own metaphors and unravelling each others metaphors, really helps us in getting to know the perspective on reality of others in our team, familiy and organization.
Metaphors are, when properly used, extremely powerful tools for getting a perspective on perspectives and to remedy 'stuck states'.
