Marilyn, when I use dancing as a metaphor, I emphasize that the leader
leads until both partners reach the level of alignment in which all lead!

I also use very often, in classes and consulting, what I call the Tribal
Conversation metaphor. I read a paper by Jim Channon, "Espirit de Corps,"
where he uses the "Dialogue `Round the Fire'", metaphor. I use this a lot
in my classes to signify to the students that we are "learning partners"
and that everyone learns and teaches!
