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.
I’m very new to Clean Language and found this book to be outstanding. The colors, imagery, diagrams, even the quality of the paper speak to me metaphorically - this book is important. And the bookmark was an unexpected surprise! I’ve begun using some of the questions, in a variety of circumstances, including sales meetings and when interviewing candidates for open positions and have been quite pleased with the results. Marian, your passion and enthusiasm is evident, and have enjoyed reading and working through the clean approach. It’s already on my “read again” stack.Brian Farrell
I received my book yesterday. Oh boy is it beautiful! I've only started to read it, but the tone is clear and engaging. The layout is great. Illustrations are detailed enough to clarify topics, but simple to leave room for your own overlying metaphors. The paper's of high quality: heavy and glossy. And the book stays open when layed flat - a huge quality criterion for me as well. Very well done! I've only started to read it during commute this morning; I'm eager to continue.Nicolas Stampf
Marian has captured the multi-layered and multifaceted world of working with Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling with simple elegance and eloquent clarity. The layout, the content, the colours, the case studies and explanations take you on a journey of discovery and exploration with Marian pointing out the many wonders to be noticed and guiding you on your way. Fabulous!Greta Irving
