About the Book

We, Andrea Chiou and Sharon Small, have created this book to help connect the community of people using clean language questions and methodologies to others using or interested in clean models and methodologies. We wanted to create a fun to read book filled with personal stories of how people came across clean and how it has changed their work and personal lives. And we also wanted to create a book with the potential to grow, which is how we came to use Leanpub.

Clean language practitioners and enthusiasts use a certain set of questions, called clean questions and a different way of listening to encourage independent thinking and discovery. There is a philosophy behind clean as well - one that holds a person’s experience and understanding of the world in highest respect with the intention of non-interference. We are taught a way of listening and asking questions that gives the person we are with complete freedom to have and own their own way of being without our suggestions, input or creative re-interpretations. There is more to it than this and our hope is as you read through the pages of this book that you will begin to see the difference being ‘clean’ can make for you and those you care about most.

Clean is practiced now in a very wide variety of professions and domains. This book will begin to give you a flavor of the breadth of its impact, from equine therapists, to small IT shops, to music teachers, to ISO 9000 auditors, and much much more. Clean is universal because it taps into our most innate desire for acceptance and connection and does so in such a respectful way.
