What a great post!
We typically think of only metaphors to communicate complex ideas. But there are more ways! The infographic in the article shows all 6 with details included.
I also like how to entire article emphasizes being audience-centric when presenting. That means getting into your listener's heads so you can explain your ideas in ways they will get. Too often we frame our presentations from our own viewpoints. Then we wonder why we don't connect or get the results we want.
Anyway, this post and infographic should help you make the shift.
