- How metaphor is fundamental to how we think and express ourselves
- Why an angry person is like a volcano and a relationship is like a journey
- How talking about hummingbirds could resolve a conflict with your business partner
- How to avoid making a fool of yourself with the wrong metaphor
- … and much more!

Really, this little podcast episode is only scratching the surface of what you can do with metaphors. For a deeper understanding, get this great instructional audio from Jonathan Altfeld: The Metaphor Machine.
It gives you an even more subtle and powerful method for creating useful metaphors than the ‘standard’ NLP approach (which I couldn’t share in this little podcast because a) it’s not mine to share and b) there’s a lot of material there, too much to fit into the podcast format!
