Facilitating cleanly is a craft and like all crafts there are ‘hidden’ skills that turn a technique into an art form. This series of online workshops explores what happens below the surface, behind the scenes, and inside the mind-body of experienced clean facilitators.
How do they model symbolically? What do they pay attention to and what do they ignore? How do they relate to the client, their inner world and themselves cleanly? How do they get exceptional results even though they are using the same questions as a beginner?
Penny and James have teamed up with Annemiek Van Helsdingen to reveal all.
The following 9-minute video is an overview of what InsideClean offers to those who want to take their facilitation skills to the next level ...
- Get lost when facilitating and get that ‘frozen in the headlights’ feeling?
- Not know what to do when a client appears stuck or going round in circles?
- Wonder how to proceed when your client ‘does not go into metaphor’?
- Get overwhelmed by the amount of information the client provides?
- Wonder if it is really possible to facilitate from a place of ‘not knowing’?
- Consider if what you are doing is actually working for the client?
Then this series of advanced workshops is for you.
There are FOUR workshops in 2019:
- How do you know what question to ask? (available as recording, )
- If only God would give us a sign (available as recording)
- How to ask a Clean Language Question with "Oomph" (available as recording)
- And on Oct 28th, 7 pm UK: Asking Specialised Questions: When and How?
In each workshop, we pick one topic and with you we’ll explore what’s beyond the obvious when working cleanly.
There are two options to join us:
Join as a member for four workshops (for the price of three) and:
- Participate in the live workshop
- Access the library of workshop video recordings
- Receive bonus material that has never been released before
- Request topics for future workshops.
Participate in individual workshops. If you cannot attend live you will be able to view a video recording of the event, which is designed to give you a lot of value, even then.
Either way, we’d love to have you join the adventure.
You will get the most out of our time together if you are already familiar with:
- Asking Clean Language questions
- Working with clients' metaphors
- The Problem-Remedy-Outcome (PRO) model.
Information about these topics is available here.
Penny Tompkins and James Lawley are co-developers of Symbolic Modelling and leading authorities on the use of David Grove’s Clean Language and self-generated metaphor for personal and professional development.
Together Penny and James run The Developing Company, are married, and are based in London. Their purpose is to facilitate people to see the repeating patterns in their personal and professional lives, to recognise how these patterns can change, and to trust what emerges.
Their book, Metaphors in Mind is a comprehensive guide to Symbolic Modelling and Clean Language which they also introduce in an Online Course. James’ latest book (with Marian Way), Insights in Space is the first to be dedicated to Clean Space.
Over 200 of their articles and blogs are freely available at cleanlanguage.co.uk.
Annemiek van Helsdingen has used and taught Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling since 2005 in many application areas, including corporate change work, clean interviewing, education and personal development.
She is the founder of the Academy for Soul-based Coaching, an online Academy offering in-depth live-training, where she and her team teach aspiring and trained coaches to use Symbolic Modelling in conjunction with Holding space to help their clients make the changes they want to make.
Annemiek lives in the Netherlands with her husband and daughter and thoroughly enjoys the global nature of her work. She wants nothing more than to see people access their inner magic, so they can take ownership of their lives and thrive, both as coaches and clients.
Our deepest appreciation goes to David Grove (1950-2008), the originator of Clean Language and the source of all the subsequent developments to emerge in the world of clean.
How do I attend the live workshops online?
In your learning portal, you will find the Zoom link for each workshop. All you need to do is click on the link and install a small app. Zoom is a very user friendly platform that allows you to share your webcam and microphone, allowing all of us to see and hear each other. It also allows us to use breakout rooms, so you can practice just as you would in a face-to-face training.
Do I have enough experience to join?
You will get most out of our time together if you are already familiar with: * Asking Clean Language questions; * Working with clients’ metaphors; * and especially the Problem-Remedy-Outcome (PRO) model.
Information about these topics is available at: insideclean.thinkific.com/pages/experience-required
If you are not sure if your prior experience is sufficient, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I can't make a live workshop?
All workshops are recorded and you will have unlimited access to the recordings and other materials – providing you with a rich resource for continued learning.
Recordings and privacy
All live workshops are recorded and will be added to the InsideClean portal for current and future members. By joining us you consent to being recorded. However, you have the choice to turn off your webcam so that you will not be visible in the recording.
