Our 1-day Introduction to Clean Language is designed to give you a ‘taster’ of what it’s possible to achieve with this powerful methodology, along with the basic skills you need to get started. The day will be based around powerful Clean Language tools that are easy to learn and which you can put into practice immediately:

  • Clean Set Up: getting off to a good start and avoiding hidden agendas
  • Developing a resource metaphor: gain awareness of your own resources and learn how to help others do the same
  • The Target Model: how to stay on track during a clean coaching session
  • Clean Feedback: how to give feedback that people can do something about
  • One Minute Motivation: stop procrastinating and start taking action - and how to get others to do the same without giving them any advice

These simple, practical tools can be used in a multitude of contexts. Along the way, you will also learn the basic Clean Language questions, what assumptions you are making a split second after someone speaks and how to clean can help you keep those assumptions to yourself and so move from contempt to curiosity. There will also be a demonstration of clean coaching.
