Samenvatting

Would you like better relationships, a deeper understanding of the people around you, and a simple yet powerful way to help them achieve their life goals? Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors and Opening Minds can offer all this and more. This book will teach you a new way to communicate which gets to the heart of things! By asking Clean Language questions to explore the metaphors which underpin a person's thinking, you can help people to change their lives in a way that intrinsically respects diversity and supports empowerment. Both you and they will gain profound new insights into what makes them tick. Devised by David Grove, this elegant and powerful questioning technique is simple to learn and opens a door to a new way of thinking about how people's minds actually work by using metaphor. If you want to truly understand people, to motivate them, or to help them to change, you'll find it much easier when you use Clean Language to ask the questions that really matter. The approach was originally used to help clients to resolve deep trauma. It is now being used to get to the truth and to cut through complex problems by some of the sharpest and most innovative people in the world, such as business people, coaches, educators, health professionals and many others. In this book, two of the world's top specialists in Clean Language bring this fascinating new approach within reach. Expect to change the way you think about the way we think! Essential reading for coaches, healthcare professionals, parents, business people, teachers, therapists and anyone who wants to improve his or her communication skills.

  • A treasure chest

    I've just started reading this gem of a book for the second time, and keep finding new meanings which further enrich my understanding and use of Clean Language. In many ways, it changes the way we think about the way people think and use language, which results in a much richer understanding of what constitutes effective communication. I came across the concept of Clean Language about a year ago when reading the fascinating book 'Metaphors in Mind: Transformation through Symbolic Modelling.' It instantly captured my interest, and I have been practising and applying Clean Language ever since. However, I still had many unanswered questions which I felt limited my understanding of and confidence in using Clean Language. When I heard this book was about to be released, I instantly ordered it. It exceeded my expectations in many ways. Whereas Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors and Opening Minds deals with many of the same ideas as Metaphors in Mind, I found it to be both a great companion and an excellent work in itself which extends and refines many aspects of Clean Language. It contains a rich collection of exercises, real-life examples, tips, and background information which should satisfy newcomers as well as experienced users of Clean Language. It extends the scope for using Clean Language in a wide variety of contexts including counselling, training, teaching, management, parenting, relationships, research, and many others. The book manages to effectively weave together the basics as well as more advanced aspects of Clean Language. As a relative newcomer, I especially liked the many exercises which allow the reader to first develop and gain confidence in using the basics of Clean Language before moving on to more advanced techniques. The Frequently Asked Questions chapter provides some excellent down-to-earth tips and explanations which greatly help any newcomer dealing with relevant issues and skills such as memory strategies, dealing with information overload, maintaining focus, and many others. The techniques have helped me to support myself as well as friends and colleagues in gaining a deeper understanding of difficult situations they faced and in finding new ways to think and act effectively, often with surprising results. In fact, I find it increasingly difficult not to use any Clean Language within conversations, as once you become more familiar with the questions you start to understand their power in developing and maintaining positive relationships and gaining a deeper understanding for yourself and those around you.
