In our trainings we often talk about encouraging clients to physicalise their metaphors - sometimes during a session and sometimes between sessions. 'Physicalising' means taking a metaphor and embodying it, making it 'real' - or as real as possible...
We discuss tips and tricks to help you to complete the assignments associated with the ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring.
This is a question that is often asked during
trainings such as Clean Language: Core Skills or Systemic Modelling. Participants become very enthusiastic about the
skills they are learning and begin to think about putting them into practice –
and then they hit a problem: “I don’t know how to describe this in such a way
that people will understand what I am talking about.”
Some ways you can meet and practice with others who are interested in Clean Language.
In a recent Clean Language: Core skills training event, Marian Way told us we needed to do our 'due diligence' to improve in Clean Language. 'Due diligence' is a term often used by David Grove which meant: do lots of practice, get feedback and learn from it.
When Caitlin Walker was invited to speak at the
International Coach Federation’s (ICF) European Conference in
Sweden in September 2014, little did she know it would result in an explosion
of interest in Clean Language throughout Europe.
A couple of words often used in association with Clean Language are ‘curiosity’ and ‘neutrality’. A Clean Language coach is accepting of everything a client says, not favouring one piece of information over another, but remaining neutral - like an impartial observer.
Over the years we’ve developed a number of courses that have Clean Language at their core, and now when you click on our Events page, there’s rather a long list… So here are some questions to help you to decide which is the right course of action for you.
My new book "Clean Approaches for Coaches" addresses a question a lot of new coaches have: "OK, I get it that it is about the client and their agenda and not about me giving advice, suggestions etc… but how do you do that in practice?" Starting with an overview of Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling, the book takes you step-by-step through the process of coaching someone using Clean Language.
Not that I was planning to become a coach, but I was increasingly desperate to do something ‘non-corporate’ with my life. I was on Eventbrite, when a catchy event title caught my eye: Clean Approaches for Coaches book launch. I googled, booked and turned up 2 days later. I liked what I heard, the people I met and the slight quirkiness of it, so I bought the book.
