Clean Learning events online

Due to the coronavirus, all our events between now and the end of August will be online. As well as all the reasons you may already have for taking part in clean training, this is also one way you can stay in touch with others, use the time productively and not feel so isolated.

Published 28 March, 2019 by Jacqueline Ann Surin

When Jacqueline Ann Surin was asked to coach a young adult for whole day, she decided to start by using Clean Space to scope the situation and what he wanted to get from the session. Read on to find out how this worked and what happened when the client did not follow the Clean Space directions as she expected...

What our customers say

"The session was really enjoyable and insightful. It gets you to very quickly see things from a different perspective of ‘what do you want the outcome to be’. The benefits are that it's brilliantly simple to try and it works. On my first attempt at implementing the technique of ‘Clean Language’ on my return to the office, I successfully managed to reframe the conversation with a colleague and used their language in the exchange. The outcome was truly enlightening with positive results. Overall a more positive conversation was had today as a result of trying the technique. A big thank you!"
Lockheed Martin Senior Project Manager

"Clean is an excellent tool to get to the truth. It’s fabulous to help individuals explore and discover new solutions. I will use the skills and knowledge learnt in my leadership development programmes, personal coaching and in meetings."
Martine Scannell
Clean Facilitator Programme

"James Lawley and Marian Way’s new book Insights in Space: How to Use Clean Space to Solve Problems, Generate Ideas and Spark Creativity is a powerful and practical example of both “Third Generation NLP” and “Generative Change.” Insights in Space unites the three intelligences of cognitive understanding, somatic intuition, and field awareness into a seemingly simple yet deceptively sophisticated methodology to produce creative insights. The process integrates David Grove’s brilliant “Clean” approach with the principles of spatial sorting to construct a type of generative “psychogeography” from which new ideas and solutions can naturally emerge. The “clean space” approach helps to clarify, demystify and enrich some of the underlying dynamics—such as network effects, synchronicity and emergence—that make other methodologies that apply spatial sorting work. My congratulations to James and Marian for this useful, clear and well-written book."
