Visual Metaphors at Work® presents


the method for the systematic use of visual metaphors in workshops for individuals and teams. 






  • creates an environment where even those previously unable, unwilling or afraid to speak their mind and contribute their best knowledge, skills and ability, become eager to do so
  • brings clarity to complex issues and situations by creating mutually agreed constructs – metaphors - for trial and iteration
  • is particularly well-suited for remote use online


We at Visual Metaphors at Work® offer you, experienced facilitators and coaches, the opportunity to access and explore this powerful tool through our online masterclasses.


’Lephorus® uses images to bring important issues to the fore in a fun, engaging, speedy and non-confrontational way. Their workshops opened our eyes to important changes we needed to make in our organisation’’.
 Giselle Pettyfer, Vice-Chairman, Falcon and Associates

What People Say


''I find that my clients often refer to this exercise and the pictures until the end of the transition and even talk to me about it afterwards. Images are points of reference, anchors and safeguards, on which to rely in order to stay in touch with the meaning of the process and not give in to fears. 

Lephorus® is a fantastic tool.''

Elodie Mastrogiacomo

CEO, voie9


‘’The Lephorus® methodology has transformed the way I am approaching workshops and proves that what I thought was great was just alright. Visual metaphors are an incredible way to deep dive rapidly in the heart of what matters. I now achieve in 3 hours what could previously take me one or two days; I end up my workshops with high energy and can deliver insights to my clients that are powerful and actionable.

Joe Séjean

Founder, Eleven Network

''The images and methodology really helped us to express unstructured thoughts in a highly structured way and sparked an excellent debate about these issues. We learnt a lot about how our business is viewed internally and how those colleagues taking part think.'' 

Edward Collins

COO, Arlington Capital
