How do you describe Clean Language to a new or prospective client?

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.”

Practice May Not Make Perfect But Can Definitely Improve Skills

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.

Adventures in Clean: An Unbeatable Experience

I travelled from Malaysia to the UK for Adventures in Clean for three reasons. First of all, I am constantly looking out for opportunities to deepen my skills and to become a better Clean Language coach. Secondly, when I came to Northern Taste of Clean last year, several friends who had been on the 2015 Adventures told me about the powerful insights and life-changing moments they had had. I wanted that kind of experience, too. And my third reason was that it was an opportunity to work with all five Clean Language experts in one place.

A review of the “Adventures in Clean” event

Over the May bank holiday weekend I attended Adventures in Clean and thought it was worth writing up. I really wanted to go because it featured what I view as some of the rockstars of the Clean world: James Lawley; Penny Tompkins; Caitlin Walker; Marian Way: and Shaun Hotchkiss.

My Clean Adventure: Personal and Professional Development

I signed up for Adventures in Clean because I wanted the professional development. I thought it would be a great opportunity to see five of the most experienced users of Clean Language doing their thing – and that was my focus for the first afternoon and most of the following day. I was watching different people come forward for clean sessions and I was writing down their words and what was happening during the sessions, as well as my own insights and Ah-ha! moments.

My Clean Adventure; Floating Down The River

When I first heard about Adventures in Clean way back in January I had an urge to attend. I have a number of health issues and done a lot of work on them but it had become very hard and I had lost inspiration. Then, about a month before the weekend, someone had posted a link to an article of Penny and James’s about metaphors for healing on Facebook. I remember reading it and thinking, “I really want one of those. I want an all-encompassing metaphor, that’s not just about what’s happening now.”

How to Handle Difficult Conversations using the Karma Cycle

I was reading a recent article on the ILM website about how managers can deal with difficult conversations at work, when I came across this paragraph about how to deal with issues of poor performance: “The conversations that you have with the individual must be related to the behaviour of the individual and not the personal characteristics of the individual...

10 Ways to Get Started with Clean Language

Clean Language helps people to explore their own thinking in their own way, to uncover patterns that keep them stuck and to find their own creative solutions. Here are ten ways you can learn more about Clean Language, what it is and how it works:

From Individual Systems to Systems of Individuals

Less is More in Business

Last year my business, Genius Within, was growing and I had more and more associates working for us, delivering to a wide range of clients. I was delivering face-to-face services as well as managing the business and I was very busy, to the extent where I completely forgot a key meeting. I realised I needed to take some time to reflect, and to learn from this mistake. 

Preview of 'Clean Approaches for Coaches'

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.

Clean Approaches for Wannabee Coaches

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.
