"Marian is an expert coach, an inspiring trainer and a great author - a rare combination!"
""I attended Marian's Introduction to Clean Coaching course in Stockholm... and it was such a great course! Fun and at the same time practical. Inspiring, meaningful and useful in so many areas. A simplicity, cleanness and playfulness in the philosophy of Clean Language, while at the same time so profound, serious and demanding. Training brings skills. Marian is a wonderful trainer. I'm so glad I joined! Develops me in all my roles, as a manager, management consultant, coach, educator, mom, wife, fellow human and human being. I highly recommend it!"
Margareta Carlsson ICF Coach
"Marian has an easy and relaxed teaching style, utilising a variety of fun processes that assist in getting the material anchored in your system. Even in the relaxed atmosphere there was continued attention to detail, so that we all got what we came for. "
"Thank you so much for such an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable session. All the feedback has been extremely and exceptionally positive because you were truly terrific and greatly appreciated by us all."
""I’m so grateful that I signed up for the Clean Language course. My rating is "Satisfied Over Expectation"! A training that shows a crisp, clean and useful method. To make 'as little as possible' gives me a new dimension. At the same time we were trained in a dimension of listening as (with training) will make me a better coach, educator and human being. Marian was an incredibly competent, safe, clear, sharp and humble leader. A model both in the method and as a course leader. Together with these wonderful colleagues, nothing could be better. Want to learn more "
Birgitta Keller ICF Coach
"Marian has a warm, charming, funny and encouraging style to make the complexity of clean modelling seem achievable to everyone's ability level."
"Marian and I worked together over a number of weeks, and I addressed a couple of significant issues that I had been challenged by for a number of years. I had worked with a therapist on these too, and while that had helped a great deal, the work with Marian shifted my thinking and behaviour significantly. Marian, and her work, is gentle and incredibly powerful. She is a pleasure to work with and I rate her and Clean Language highly."
Gillian McCready Executive Coach and Business Consultant
"The introduction course to Clean Language Coaching exceeded my high expectations. Marian’s ability to keep an agenda, cover the content and at the same time follow the group was impressive. I have learned a new approach and a new “coaching language” that is very effective. If you are ready for a new approach to conversations with others, I highly recommend this course.”"
"Marian Way has a wonderful way of facilitating workshops, to allow everyone to contribute to the pace and dynamics of the learning… as we do when using ‘Clean’ with our clients. Inspirational."
Lisa Sturge Coach
"Marian is a Clean Language wizard. Her skill of modelling the client's solution flows so easily and naturally - the problem does not quite know what's hit it! Marian's level of skill and excellence as a coach and trainer is a great gift and opportunity for anyone who is ready for change."
Gilda Westerman Coach
"Thank you for the brilliant learning experience. I am in awe of how you weave structure (teaching all core skills in 6 days) and spontaneity (focusing on the topic as and when the question or relevant situation emerges) seamlessly throughout the course. I figured, for me, that’s how a clean facilitator works with a client, having the strategy and structure and holding them loosely, and spontaneously updating and adjusting to what emerges from the client in the moment."
Kyoko Kusama Executive Coach
"Marian is the perfect 'teacher' of Clean. Her book Clean Approaches for Coaches, is highly readable and visual, setting out steps and with examples to support. Marian's approach when sharing the material is generous and nurturing."
"Marian is a great facilitator with a passion for what she does. I would thoroughly recommend her for anyone with an interest in this area."
"Marian is an expert who uses her expertise in a gentle and generous way to achieve quick and powerful results."
"Marian is very patient, fun and humorous and cares about her participants."
Judith Auslanden Coach and Hypnotherapist
"The ILM Level 5 Clean Language Coaching course is a practical and thorough introduction to putting Clean Language to work in a precise and purposeful way. Over 3 weekends we learned how to use apparently simple tools to build emergent models of.a clients space, develop clear outcomes, resolve drama and work with Clean Feedback and Developmental Tasks.
This course taught skills that cannot be learned from reading Clean Language books. Progress in online study groups between the taught sessions showed both how far my learning had progressed and provided the content for the assignments.
Marian is knowledgeable and clear in her teaching, and an expert on the subject."
Mike Haber Digital Information Model Developer
"I find Marian teaches in such a gentle way, I suddenly realise I have covered a LOT of material effortlessly and that I can immediately apply it with confidence. "
