During my career as a coach and coach trainer there have been a few significant people in my life. They are people who have profoundly influenced both the way that I work and the way that I coach. One of these is David Grove, the master of Clean Questions.
I first discovered the work of David Grove 7 years ago when I stumbled upon a transcript of him working with a client. I was deeply moved by his gentle yet effective approach and I have been studying his work ever since. Sadly I never met him in person due to his untimely death in 2008. But thank goodness NLP modellers Penny Tompkins and James Lawley studied him closely for many years and were able to distil his work into what we know today as Clean Language, as well as Clean Space and Emergent Knowledge.
What I have learnt from them and others in the field, has become an integral part of my own coaching style, and I’ve put together this session to share this learning with you, and how I have developed this work for use with my own coaching clients.
With this session on Coaching with Clean Questions we will explore:
- An introduction to coaching with Clean Questions
- David Grove’s Emergent Knowledge technique to develop a goal, change a barrier, explore an issue, make a decision…
- How coaching in a ‘clean’ way helps the coach remain in a ‘not knowing’ state
- How this powerful approach helps clients really connect with their goals
This session is suitable for anyone who wants facilitate others to access their own conscious and unconscious resources to affect change, help others look at things from different perspectives, get past blocks and challenges, and to integrate this ‘less is more’ approach into their current coaching practice.

Comments from coaches:
“I was amazed at how well clean questions surface reflective material that really makes a difference, helping me to communicate, lead and facilitate in the various leadership and educational roles I have. ”Dr Richard Mann – GP Tutor and Mentor
“You can’t imagine how much that question “what would you like to have happen?” has unlocked a “door” into my more effective coaching. Angela, I am fast becoming your number one fan.” Simon Spence, Quality Coach with Macdonald’s Restaurants UK Ltd.
“Angela I just wanted to share this morning’s brilliant “clean” moment…I tried one of the fabulous new “clean” processes with a client I have been working with on and off for many years. She came in and specifically asked to work on goal setting so I told her about the process I learned on your course. She was sceptical at first but decided to give it a go. The result was, in her words, “it’s the first time I have ever made a connection with my goal!” Wow!!! I can see this is going to be a brilliant tool for me, thank you.!!!” Sue Burt, Personal Fitness Coach & Trainer, www.train-gain.co.uk
