The Map Metaphor as a Mentoring Tool:
+ Data organization- reporting numeric data in a way that facilitates story telling, self-orientation, and path finding.
+ ‘Journey’ language creates a framework and metaphoric language for change.
+ Change is movement (linear and cyclic).
+ Different locations (value scores) on the map represent different, conditions (fulfillment and meaning).
+ Different locations (values) on the map represent 'seeing differently'
+ Actions are self-propelled movement, (self is cause and initiator of action)
+ Purposes (goals and visions) are destinations (self as set of values)
+ Causes are physical forces (force-vector change model)
+ Paths are strategies (different choices, seeing differently)
+ Linear scales measure which step on a path your are standing-putting your weight (measuring location and progress)
+ Stories are gestalts that organize large quantities of information in to a unified whole.
