Unleash the power of your team with Clean Language
Unleashing Your Team’s Metaphorce With Clean Language
Work teams around the world are increasingly adopting Clean Language as a methodology to improve communications both within the team and beyond it. They report that it fills a gap in the toolkit for easing the people- and communication-based challenges which tend to flare up wherever staff are under pressure.
Because it’s based on universal principles about how people tick, while recognising the uniqueness of each individual, it thrives on diversity and helps to achieve clarity of understanding across professional, educational and other cultural boundaries.
Clean Language can deliver results for groups and teams in a number of ways by:
Harvesting known information (for example, clarifying requirements)
Exploring unknown knowns (such as sources of team tensions)
Shifting emotional states
Motivating people to change
Giving and getting useful feedback
Clean Language looks very simple, so it can be introduced quickly and easily in a variety of group situations, especially with groups of colleagues. And it has hidden depths! Once adopted more widely as a way of working together, it can support exceptional performance - for example, a tutor group of nine students at a UK university all achieved first class degrees after they used Clean approaches to support each others’ learning.
In this highly-interactive workshop, you will experience the impact of some specific Clean Language techniques and learn how to share them effectively with groups and teams in your work.
