    Clean Language

    For Agile Practitioners

  • RESULTS

    "A huge part of our job is about communication,

    collaboration and creating trust and safety. However

    what I typically see is huge amounts of expectation,

    assumption and judgment.

    Clean Language takes that away and replaces it

    with curiosity. That's when change can finally

    happen." Irene Kuhn, Agile Coach, Germany

  • BOOSTING TEAMS

    Fast-track learning for Agile practitioners

    Some coaching and facilitation experience is needed

    Suitable for Agile coaches, scrum masters, product owners etc

    Supplements existing skills, tools and ceremonies

    Learners can share with teams immediately for maximum benefit

  • LEARNING

    Harvest knowledge with greater clarity, depth and context

    Uncover information, ideas and needs people dont realise that they have

    Improve your listening, focus and presence so that people feel more

    understood by you

    Develop stronger relationships, including across traditionally-challenging

    boundaries

    Grow more effective feedback habits to make learning and development

    inevitable

    Concentrate attention on what really matters, making communication

    more efficient

  • ENGAGING PEOPLE

    People arent brains in jars! Effective thinking and communication involves

    the head, heart and gut

    Our process is designed to get participants fully engaged from the start

    We ensure everyone knows whats in it for them to contribute, and plays

    an active part in co-creating results

    The planned programme is designed to flex in response to the needs of

    the group

  • THE METAPHOR EFFECT

    Our underpinning framework, Clean Language, uses metaphor

    the atom of thought to spark powerful conversations

    A deceptively simple ice-breaker provides the raw material for

    profound exploration of team dynamics and for context-specific

    communication skills development

    We ask: When you are working at your best, you are like

    what?

    Participants discover their similarities and differences, and find

    ways to support each others unique working styles

  • TYPICAL PROCESS

    Everyone needs their own device with a

    webcam and headset, plus a quiet place to

    call from

    master online communication

    Time between sessions helps to embed

    learning in practical reality
