Learn Clean Language

We use Clean Language to inspire capability in groups and individuals - and we can teach you to do this too. What would you like to have happen?

Clean Learning events online

Due to the coronavirus, all our events between now and the end of August will be online. As well as all the reasons you may already have for taking part in clean training, this is also one way you can stay in touch with others, use the time productively and not feel so isolated.

What our customers say

"This was one of the most important pieces of personal development I have ever had. The workshop enabled me to understand what assertiveness really was for me and to overcome my own personal barriers and challenges. The learnings I carried from the experience have enabled me to be far more effective in both my personal and my professional life. I would say that this workshop is an absolute must for just about anyone. Penny and Marian are strong and gentle facilitators and role models and clearly enjoyed the process as much as we did."

"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."

Clean Approaches for Coaches

"The session was really enjoyable and insightful. It gets you to very quickly see things from a different perspective of ‘what do you want the outcome to be’. The benefits are that it's brilliantly simple to try and it works. On my first attempt at implementing the technique of ‘Clean Language’ on my return to the office, I successfully managed to reframe the conversation with a colleague and used their language in the exchange. The outcome was truly enlightening with positive results. Overall a more positive conversation was had today as a result of trying the technique. A big thank you!"
