Quite often clients will offer up images/metaphors in coaching sessions that we just go with! There is always something to work with. I notice the presence of cliffs lately…lots of cliffs, ledges, canyons, voids. Clients are up high looking down or out at something far away (or far below) and they are in a place of thought and consideration. How do I get from here to there?
What if you do leave the comfort (?) of the ledge. Maybe you will land on your feet. Maybe you will end up in a broken pile of mess. What is true is you will have left the ledge, having dared to get closer to what–from up there–felt so far away.
