When Jacqueline Ann Surin was asked to coach a young adult for whole day, she decided to start by using Clean Space to scope the situation and what he wanted to get from the session. Read on to find out how this worked and what happened when the client did not follow the Clean Space directions as she expected...
"If you’re new to Clean Language, this beautifully organised and thoroughly user-friendly guide will take you by the hand and lead you through the initial strangeness of asking - and answering - Clean questions, and then through each important stage of working more “cleanly” with clients, including a very reassuring section on what to do when none of it seems to work. More experienced practitioners will appreciate the way each aspect of Clean is discussed in the light of current research and the way the often fascinating case-study transcripts (don’t miss “I Fart in Your General Direction”) are presented in bite-sized colour coded chunks with zippy illustrations and very helpful question-by-question commentary. One reason why this book works so well is because Marian Way spent five years figuring out how to present both the fundamentals and the fiddly bits of Clean in a way that follows the inner dynamic of an actual Clean session. Her great ability to present the convolutions of each client’s inner landscape clearly and coherently will make this book an essential addition to your Clean library."
Clean Approaches for Coaches
"The training proved to be a rich space for conceptual learning, skills development and personal discovery. "
John Webber HR Manager
Clean Space & Emergent Knowledge
"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."
