I usually feel quite cynical when it comes to Valentine's Day each year. The expectation and anticipation created can be huge. Will it be a day that should be ignored, a steamy encounter or a day where we can show how much we love one another? Try a clean approach to Valentine's Day.

A key principle in all David Grove’s work is
that of iteration, which is what happens when the result of a procedure is used
as the starting point for the next application of the procedure. We ask a clean
question, a person responds and we then ask a clean question of that response.
This is one aspect of the work that makes it so powerful; ideas build one upon
another and new – or old – wisdom can emerge.

This is a question that is often asked during
trainings such as Clean Language: Core Skills or Systemic Modelling. Participants become very enthusiastic about the
skills they are learning and begin to think about putting them into practice –

Rachel Gilmore has so far attended eight days of
training with us – Clean for Teams plus a couple of modules of our Systemic Modelling Programme – and she is already using clean with several of her clients. When she told us she was already getting better results than with her existing methods, we were intrigued, so Marian interviewed her to

In a recent Clean Language: Core skills training event, Marian Way told us we needed to do our 'due diligence' to improve in Clean Language. 'Due diligence' is a term often used by David Grove which meant: do lots of practice, get feedback and learn from it.

I travelled from Malaysia to the UK for Adventures in Clean for three reasons. First of all, I am constantly looking out for opportunities to deepen my skills and to become a better Clean Language coach. Secondly, when I came to Northern Taste of Clean last year, several friends who had been on the 2015 Adventures told me about the powerful insights and life-changing moments they had had. I wanted that kind of experience, too. And my third reason was that it was an opportunity to work with all five Clean Language experts in one place.

In 2008, I was sitting in a meeting of educators in the field of sports development. They had received some funding to create a learning resource for their students.
They wanted to make a CD ROM about those
who were exceptional in the field of sports and sports development, in order to
inspire their students to make the most of their opportunities in university.
