Clean Approaches for Coaches
Clean Approaches for Coaches is about creating the conditions for change within a coaching session, quite naturally and without giving advice, making suggestions, or interpreting your clients’ needs. It answers a question many new coaches have: “OK I get that it is the client who does the work and that I have to keep my opinions to myself - but how do I do that?”.
Throughout the book, there are plentiful examples, diagrams and case studies to aid your learning. Written in a clear and engaging style, with quirky illustrations created by the author, this is not just a how-to book. It is also a story book and a reference book. And whether you are a new or experienced coach, and whether you are new to Clean Language or a veteran, this is a must-have book.
Reading Clean Approaches for Coaches is like going through the clean coaching process itself: it’s fun, simple, iterative and entrancing. Along the way there is space for great insights, deep thoughts, sudden clarity and familiar recognition of old ideas in a new form. Marian’s book is a brilliant example of the very best of modelling – she takes something highly complex and serves it up in such a way that anyone can do it. She leaves you with nothing to worry about, just a range of clear tools to pick up, practise, lay down and return to. Marian writes personally and engagingly as the wonderful teacher she is. She takes me on her journey and points things out along the way so that I feel confident to make that journey again alone and find my own meaning along the way. Her illustrations and case studies bring a clarity to learning the process that stays with me long after I’ve closed the book.Caitlin Walker
I'm delighted with my copy of Clean Approaches for Coaches. It's both great for the beginner and robust in its dealing of the advanced material. I enjoy the attractive layout, the clear tables and diagrams and the many real examples. It's faithful and respectful of the Clean Language community and the body of knowledge and the book helps advance it by pointing to next steps for the reader. Well done Marian, it's an excellent source of learning and reference for all Clean Language students.Brian Birch
