I have worked for years helping individuals and organizations harness the astonishing power of stories as metaphors for our human experience. Metaphor draws us into the deeper meanings and functions of the choices we make, the directions we choose, the companions we travel with. These stories can be personal memories, epic dispatches from the battleground of the marketplace or the ancient myths that underlie all the cultures of the earth.

For me the greatest satisfaction is seeing participants engage more and more deeply as they realize that the story they are immersed in holds vital meaning for themselves and for their organization. This is narrative learning - then truly transformative things can happen.
