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.
Marian, you have done it! Clean Approaches for Coaches is an essential handbook for coaches, counselors, managers, teachers, parents - for all who influence and lead others and choose to do so impeccably and with a clean approach. David Grove gave us access to the treasure of using metaphor to find meaning and to create lasting change. This book is the step by step, specifically HOW to make the best use of that rich treasure in a practical and productive way. The book is methodical, detailed, specific and inspiring - much like Marian's training programs. You are gently led deeper and deeper into the subject, acquiring knowledge and understanding in layers. David Grove said that metaphor mediates the interface between conscious and unconscious processes. Marian’s book is a valuable traveling companion into both realms for client and facilitator alike. Wherever you learn, coach, teach, grow and develop yourself and others, this book will guide you in your exploration of this deeply respectful approach to human change and development.Bev Martin

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
