Venue details


Description

Clean for Teams is an entry-level workshop / webinar series for those wishing to experience Systemic Modelling - a new way for people to learn about one another in groups, enabling them to move away from contempt and competition and towards curiosity and collaboration. 

Our facilitators will treat you as though you are a ‘real’ team, encouraging you to notice patterns in yourself and others and to collaborate so that each of you is learning at your best within a diverse group. In this way, you’ll be a recipient of Systemic Modelling (rather than a facilitator) and you will gain a direct experience of the benefits and challenges of being facilitated cleanly.

You may, of course, ask any questions about what the facilitators are doing and you can expect to take away ideas for putting what you’re learning into practice with your own groups or teams.

Systemic Modelling is the brainchild of Caitlin Walker, author of From Contempt to Curiosity. When a few clean questions led her to a greater understanding of herself and a dramatic shift in her life, she decided to adapt the one-to-one therapeutic method developed by David Grove to create a robust methodology that would work for groups and organisations.

Now you can experience the power of these questions – and Caitlin’s group methodology – for yourself in this fabulous, fascinating and fast-moving 2-day workshop or via 4 x 4-hour interactive Zoom sessions.

Clean Language was devised by clinical psychologist David Grove to enable people to explore their own and others’ perceptions. Rather than assume we know what someone means when they use a particular word, gesture or intonation, we can use clean questions to enquire into their experience. In a therapeutic context, David used clean questions to help people to get in touch with their unconscious metaphors and ingrained patterns underpinning their everyday experiences - and to be able to change these at a deep level.

Caitlin recognised that the information that emerges when people are asked clean questions will often be new – not just to the listener, but to the person who’s experience it is. In a group situation, everyone gets to know that information. This in turn can help people to:

  • Be more curious, deeply listen to one another, and work together in a respectful way
  • Learn about one another’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Sort out disagreements or conflicts by increasing their understanding of different perspectives
  • Clarify their thinking
  • Reveal assumptions so that conversations are held at a level everyone can understand
  • Discover hidden values
  • Build shared models of understanding

Testimonials

I have now attended Clean for Teams twice - once with a large group of 20 and then with a small group of 6. It was really interesting to observe myself in these different environments and to find out what I needed to work and learn at my best in those groups. It was refreshing to be in a group where it was absolutely okay to ask for what I needed and to be so wonderfully supported to discover how my behaviour was interpreted by others and the impact it had on them. Every time I immerse myself in this process, I learn something else that makes it possible for me to show up as the best version of me without apology - both at home and at work.

Sheryl Andrews, The Strength and Solution Detective

An excellent interactive workshop where we got to use the tools to increase learning, clarity and effective communication.

Nick Simmonds, Coach

I was very grateful for the opportunity to learn in a multicultural group with no boundaries. Clean for Teams really helped me to sort myself out and to reflect on how I perform in the group and how to build a network of attention in the group.
