About InsideClean Series 1

The theme for Series 1 is: How do I know what question to ask? This material is invaluable for mastering the craft of Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling. It provides a unique perspective into what goes on behind the scenes when highly experienced clean facilitators work with clients. The Series includes recordings of four 90-minute live workshops:

  1. How do I know what question to ask?
  2. "If only God would give us a sign"
  3. Giving your clean questions 'oomph'
  4. Using specialised clean questions

Each module also includes a pre-workshop activity to get you in the frame of mind and lots of post-workshop resources.

Sign up and you will also get access to special bonus material not available elsewhere.
