This is the power of mind mapping: plotting out a framework on which to hang your thoughts. Just like the power of tidying and decluttering your house, mind mapping feels incredibly satisfying and freeing.
This coaching exercise is a powerful addition to your toolbox, especially at the start of a client relationship. Don’t ask your clients, “Tell me about yourself” – get them to show you with a Life Map! http://www.thecoachingtoolscompany.com/products/life-mapping-tool/
