Clean Language was originally developed to help clients to resolve deep trauma. But today many of the sharpest people in the world have realized it can help them solve complex problems.

A wide range of professionals, including managers, auditors, computer scientists, sales promoters, market researchers, coaches, educators, health professionals and many others are using Clean Language because it helps them to empower people rather than tell them what to do.

Clean Language is free (i.e. “clean”) of one’s own assumptions, interpretations and judgments. So it reduces the risk of wasteful projections.

By asking Clean questions you carefully explore the metaphors that underpin a person’s thinking. And in doing so you can help them change their lives in a way that intrinsically respects each individual’s uniqueness and supports their own empowerment.

About the Workshop

From the start of this online workshop, you can expect a hands-on experience of the power of Clean Language.

You will also…

  • Learn the most useful Clean Language questions and begin using them straight away.
  • How to listen exquisitely with an open and neutral curiosity.
  • Uncover ways you can work exclusively using only the information that comes from your client.
  • Begin working with client generated metaphors in an outcome frame.
  • Learn to avoid some of the most common pitfalls that lead to client resistance and lack of follow-through.
