Clean Language - a powerful and effective way to gain authentic information

Moderator: Sharon Small

This evening workshop will introduce you to Clean Language – a powerful and effective way to communicate which gets to the heart of things. Clean Language was originally developed to help clients to resolve deep trauma. It is now being used to solve complex problems by some of the sharpest people in the world – managers, auditors, computer scientists, sales promoters, market researchers, coaches, educators, health professionals and many others who prefer to empower people rather than tell them what to do. 

Clean Language is free (= clean) of own assumptions, interpretations, and judgments. It therefore reduces the risk of wasteful projections. By asking Clean questions you carefully explore the metaphors which underpin a person’s thinking. Thereby you help them change their lives in a way that intrinsically respects diversity and supports empowerment. Expect to jump into exercises early in the workshop!

What you will get out of it

  • Discover what Clean Language is and how it is originated.
  • Learn the most useful Clean Language questions and begin using them straight away
  • Listening exquisitely with an open and neutral curiosity.
  • Working uniquely with the information that comes from your client.
  • Experience how you can use Clean Language questions for gaining clarity in information and develop deep connections with others.
