Clean Convergence 2017

January 3-18th Central Coast of California

wineryI would like to invite you to Clean Convergence 2017 held on the Central Coast of California, January 3-18, 2017

You might be wondering “What is Clean Convergence?”

Clean Convergence is the biggest Clean Language event in the US, held each January in California.

Clean Convergence is designed to help you increase your mastery of Clean Language, whether you’re just starting out, or you’re an experienced practitioner.

I am delighted to confirm that, again for 2017, we will be joined by Symbolic Modeling pioneers James Lawley and Penny Tompkins.

The next Clean Convergence program runs from Jan 3 through the 19th 2017, but you don’t have to attend every event…

We are offering four amazing events this year, most of which are three days in length.

I’d like to spend just one minute giving a brief & broad overview of each of the four events, and then encourage you to listen to the interview with Penny and James, which will provide more insight about what you can expect to get out of Clean Convergence.

Session 1: Symbolic Modeling Lite
 with Sharon Small

January 3-5, 2017

Symbolic Modeling Lite is both an ideal introduction to Symbolic Modeling, and also a great refresher.

We cover the basics of asking clean language questions, developing a client’s symbolic landscape, and work within an overview of the entire Symbolic Modeling methodology.

Please don’t be mistaken that, because we call it “Lite”, that this program lacks breadth. Far from it! You will get a full A­Z view of how Symbolic Modeling works, and how you can get results from it!

This program or equivalent is a prerequisite for the next session.

Session 2: Improving, Increasing and Integrating your Symbolic Modeling Skills with Penny Tompkins and James Lawley

January 7-9, 2017

In this second event, Improving, Increasing and Integrating your Symbolic Modeling Skills, you will discover a variety of ways to help you improve your existing skills, and also be introduced to more advanced material and ways of thinking to develop your Symbolic Modeling facilitation.

Be sure to listen to the interview to discover how the focus and content of this event unique and different to what we did in 2016.

Session 3: Symbolic Modeling Retreat with Penny Tompkins and James Lawley

January 11-13, 201

In this event you have the opportunity to be personally facilitated by Penny and James as you work on your desired outcomes.

There will also be an opportunity for you to ask them questions about their methods and how they facilitate your Metaphor Landscape.

What’s more, you don’t have to have any experience of Clean Language to attend this event.

Session 4: Clean Interviewing with James Lawley and Sharon Small

January 17-18, 2017

The fourth session Clean Interviewing is NEW for 2017! and will be led by James Lawley and myself.

You will discover how the wording of interview questions can unintentionally bias answers, how ‘leading’ questions cast doubt on the authenticity of the data collected, and how you can avoid all these pitfalls by asking ‘clean’ questions.

This training will use real interview histories and your field of expertise as its framework for learning more about using CQ in the interview process.
