Creating an Agenda on the Fly (Part 2)

Published 10 November, 2017 by Marian Way

A couple of days ago, I blogged about the session I ran at the Sydney Online Practice Group – and left you with a little question to ponder: How could I weave different people’s needs into a practice session, creating an agenda that would work well for as many of the participants as possible?

What our customers say

"I received the book on Wednesday and I couldn't put it down! Marian, you are brilliant. You explain things so clearly, and everything in your book, to begin with its structure, supports what you try to convey. For example how you start a case example, then leave it, start a new one and in the next iteration return to the first one, so the reader gets to experience firsthand that metaphors do indeed 'stick' and they are relatively easy to remember. Plus you teach flexibility and 'going with whatever presents itself' at the same time. You then do that within case examples as well. Also, your book is the first that gives me some concrete handles on the matter of which question to ask next when you are developing symbols. I've had difficulty asking for locations, and now I see why that is, and how I can better tell when that information is ready to be accessed. You reminded me that 'clean' also means that whatever you do fits with and follows from the internal logic of the client, and that the timing of a clean question also determines the 'cleanliness' of that question! So now I am starting to re-read, taking the time to soak up the details and all their implications and letting it all sink in."

Clean Approaches for Coaches

"It is a pleasure to work with Stuart both in his capacity as coach, trainer and as a work colleague. I was initially somewhat skeptical of undertaking coaching myself, but Stuart’s enthusiasm and his unfailing good humour quickly won me round. What has worked particularly well for me as a coachee has been Stuart’s curiosity, focus and attention, and he has not been afraid to ask those annoying little questions which have opened up new thinking for me."
Steve Gardner Managing Director, Arbus Black Ltd

"The training was effective, applicable in many situations, and fascinating. It was carefully scheduled and well organised, yet allowed plenty of time for questions and sharing. As for content, I particularly appreciated learning: the consistent use of the client's positive outcome as a guide for how to proceed; how to stay aware of my assumptions about a client's metaphors; and the skilful use of language to honor and acknowledge the client's perspective."
