FREE Webinar - How to Deal With Disruptive People in Meetings & training Courses

Do you run trainings, meetings or events and sometimes have to deal with people who are disruptive? Perhaps they challenge every point you make, maybe they have side conversations with friends, or perhaps they don't join in at all...

Who's it for?

Join Caitlin Walker and Marian Way, developers of a  revolutionary new way of working with groups called Systemic Modelling, as they share their ideas for dealing with disruptive participants or team members - without making them wrong.

Caitlin and Marian will also answer questions about your own experiences with disruptive group members and how to deal with them.

Caitlin  is the author of From Contempt to Curiosity in which she tells the warts-and-all story of how she developed this methodology, based on Clean Language, including the models we'll be sharing with you.

Marian, author of Clean Approaches for Coaches and co-author of Insights in Space has spent the last few years 'codifying' Systemic Modelling so others can learn how to apply it in their contexts.

What will I gain?

Amongst other things, you will learn:

  • What you can do before the event to reduce the likelihood of drama in the group.
  • How changing your own mindset can make a difference in the way you deal with disruption, which in turn can change participants' mindsets.
  • How to offer feedback in such a way that people can take it on board and want to do something about it.
  • What to do and even where to stand if participants get into drama with one another.
  • How to transfer the ownership of the problem (the disruption) from you to the group, and get them to solve it.

Frequently asked questions

What is Clean Language?

Clean Language is a simple set of questions developed by counselling psychologist David Grove. These questions are used with a person's own words to direct their attention to some aspect of their own experience. Asking these questions in the right context often results in an interesting new insight or the recognition of some new possibility. And if that new possibility is then questioned using Clean Language, the result can be quite profound. Clean questions invite people to consider their experience from different perspectives and they are often surprised by their own capacity to generate new, powerful and useful ideas about their own experience.
