Hi again and welcome to The Art of Business English. This week we are going to be looking at some metaphors that contain body parts. 

The use of metaphors in English is very common, so what is a metaphor? 

According to the Cambridge dictionary, a metaphor is an expression in English that describes a person or an object which possesses similar characteristics to the thing we are trying to describe. 

For example, "He has a heart of stone." is a metaphor used to describe someone who has no feelings or empathy towards others. 

So, now that you are clear on what a metaphor is I am going to show you some very useful ones that you can use in business to describe certain situations. 

As always, I will give you the expression and then the meaning, as well as an example sentence to help you understand the context. 

Let's jump to it.
