At the March 2016 South-West Online Practice Group, we decided to practise “One Minute Motivation”. We were aware of this as a simple and efficient Clean Language tool for helping someone to get motivated to take action...
A key Clean Language question is "And what would you like to have happen?" However, just because you ask someone this question doesn't mean they will respond with a desired outcome. Sometimes, they will tell you what they don't want (a problem) or their response may sound like a desired outcome (e.g. "I would like find a way to eliminate this issue") - but it is more of a wish for the problem to be reduced or to go away, rather than an indication of what they truly want. Take our quiz to see how well you know the P.R.O. Model.
Happy New Year! Today’s the day for New Year’s Resolutions and there’s no shortage of internet advice on how to make them, what they should be and how to keep them – but does anyone actually make New Year Resolutions these days?
We normally emphasise the need to help clients to focus on their desired outcomes, using the PRO (Problem, Remedy, Outcome) model. For this practice group, we decided to put our attention on the nature of people's problems.
Our Practice Group topic this month was “Directing Attention”. Of course, every Clean Language session is an exercise in directing attention. That’s what it’s all about – every question is designed to have someone pay attention to some aspect of their experience and to find out more about it. And all of this is, of course, in service of the client's desired outcome.
At this month's Practice Group we tried an activity based around the 'PRO' Model. This model was devised by Penny Tompkins and James Lawley to give facilitators a way to keep a client's attention on their desired outcome:
Having spent some time in August practicing how to develop outcomes, during our September meeting we focussed on helping the client to pay attention to the structure of their problems...
The theme of last night's meeting was the PRO (Problem, Remedy, Outcome) Model. This followed on from last month's meeting when we were looking at what aspects of experience to 'go for'. At the start of a session, developing the client's outcome makes it easier to know what to go for as the metaphor landscape develops: you know what you are trying to achieve. And sometimes, developing the outcome is all that is needed for the client to have a significant 'shift' in their perception.
