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...
"Undergrad and law school ruined my mind. Undergrad teachers claimed that euphemisms, clichés, analogies, assimilations and metaphors were used by the weak minds that couldn’t think creatively on their own. Law school made everything about Logos. Your book, along with other books like The Story Factor and The Righteous Mind and have started to help me turn myself back into a human being instead of a legal minded robot. Humans, when communicating not in the context of law, communicate extensively with assimilations, metaphors and stories. The human responses I’ve gotten lately with these methods have been wonderful. And, I am not really a people person. As a matter of perspective, I’ve read some Carl Rogers and some Irvin Yalom on therapy. Both are dense reads and frankly, boring. What I love about humanity (and the occasional individual) is that the Clean Approach seems to use some of that human learning/therapy history as a metaphorical baseline and then takes deep communication much farther, in a simple way. It is a relatively fun read. I am not a book worm. I got a “D” as in “DOG” in freshman English - even though, as I tried to explain to my professor, I speak English. Thanks Marian, I hope it is not an insulting over-simplification."

Clean Approaches for Coaches
"Caitlin Walker has written a remarkably valuable guide for anyone interested in how the metaphors of our daily life can amplify our group and organizational capacities. The key to unlocking our obstacles and our ‘stuck processes’ is not in more rational-analytic deliberation or command-control responses – but is here in the room with you right now. If we wish to foster effective teamwork, to reduce stress, and increase organizational engagement and productivity – the answer is in the simple, repeatable processes outlined in Systemic Modelling. Caitlin writes warmly about her own journey of discovery, and has an eye for subtle insights into the big picture and a knack for putting it across clearly. Here is fresh thinking about the application of David Grove’s Clean Language to groups, and more. Written with simplicity and clarity, it is heavy with wise practicality. You simply can not afford to not know about this if you wish to become a more effective group leader, manager, parent, project manager or executive."
