What our customers say

"The ILM Level 5 Clean Language Coaching course is a practical and thorough introduction to putting Clean Language to work in a precise and purposeful way. Over 3 weekends we learned how to use apparently simple tools to build emergent models of.a clients space, develop clear outcomes, resolve drama and work with Clean Feedback and Developmental Tasks. This course taught skills that cannot be learned from reading Clean Language books. Progress in online study groups between the taught sessions showed both how far my learning had progressed and provided the content for the assignments. Marian is knowledgeable and clear in her teaching, and an expert on the subject."

"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."

From Contempt to Curiosity

"I received the book on Wednesday and I couldn't put it down! Marian, you are brilliant. You explain things so clearly, and everything in your book, to begin with its structure, supports what you try to convey. For example how you start a case example, then leave it, start a new one and in the next iteration return to the first one, so the reader gets to experience firsthand that metaphors do indeed 'stick' and they are relatively easy to remember. Plus you teach flexibility and 'going with whatever presents itself' at the same time. You then do that within case examples as well. Also, your book is the first that gives me some concrete handles on the matter of which question to ask next when you are developing symbols. I've had difficulty asking for locations, and now I see why that is, and how I can better tell when that information is ready to be accessed. You reminded me that 'clean' also means that whatever you do fits with and follows from the internal logic of the client, and that the timing of a clean question also determines the 'cleanliness' of that question! So now I am starting to re-read, taking the time to soak up the details and all their implications and letting it all sink in."
