Don't Just Have the Soup: How Analogies Support Coaching

Alan Heymann is the author of Don’t Just Have the Soup, 52 Analogies for Leadership, Coaching and Life. This interactive workshop brings his book to life and leaves the audience with tools they can use to bring more analogies into their practices.

So much of coaching is about meeting clients where they are, and reframing the situations they are describing in terms they can understand. Alan Heymann has found coaching in analogies to be incredibly useful in evoking awareness among his clients. These are analogies he’s encountered in his own life, and sometimes they come from the clients themselves. 

Coaching theory centers around adult development, cognitive psychology, polarities and all manner of different frameworks. Coaching practice can revolve around toothpaste, soup, laundry and sofas! We engage our clients by using our imagination to spark their imaginations.

This will be a highly interactive session in which participants will describe their own coaching analogies to each other and learn how to generate even more – in addition to hearing from the presenter.
