Leadership Metaphor Explorer™ is a deck of postcard-size cards illustrated with a rich variety of drawings and captions designed to provoke insights and different perspectives about leadership. Also included is a comprehensive facilitator’s guide that any manager or leader can use.
Conducting a Leadership Metaphor Explorer session requires no special training or coaching skills yet produces a dynamic, interactive conversation. In sharing different metaphors among themselves, team and organizational members can stimulate wisdom and understanding about how leadership plays out in the organization, in communities, and across geographical and cultural boundaries.
Leadership Metaphor Explorer is used as a tool for leadership development, including understanding leadership culture as it is now and how it might be re-created in the future. The metaphors illustrate the three stages of dependent, independent, and interdependent leadership cultures. More on developing leadership in an interdependent world >>
