Words@work: Metaphor as Problem-Solver
At work we are challenged to "think outside the box". How often do you try to do this but with varying degrees of success? Join writer Catherine Graham for an evening of thinking through the box. Discover a well-reasoned and imaginative approach to problem-solving with metaphors. The result of linking both your left brain (analytical) with your right brain (imagistic) is insightful and practical information that emerges organically. A past participant claims: "If you have half a mind to solve a problem, it's not enough! Catherine Graham's training has given us techniques to combine the strengths of the analytical and creative halves of our minds to develop innovative, lasting solutions."
