L Raymond

The Metaphor Language Research Center has operated since 1987.  It started with the recognition, pioneered by others, that metaphors and visual map-building held tremendous power to align people– especially in challenging circumstances.  Cross-cultural organization problems in U.N. agencies and European corporate business needs, especially supply chain optimization were the first applications. TQM, OD and culture change followed, mainly in the U.S.

We want to help you help groups work better together.  Send a note or give a call if you want to collaborate or have a task that defies other approaches.
