I am a Clean Language trainer and assessor. In my business I teach and work with many 'clean' business applications. When I first saw the title The Five-Minute Coach I wasn't sure what to expect. My first thought was of the One Minute Manager .. a little bit of story with a conversational tool that could have been explained on one page of text.

What I found is a great resource. I agree with the above review who mentions clean language having lots of moving parts and getting deep very quickly. And that alone could be a challenge in a business environment.

Lynne Cooper and Mariette Castellino have done a tremendous job of developing a step by step clean language model that addresses the resource of personal metaphor allowing for the recognition of diversity while also focusing on the development of outcomes; distilling some of the best aspects of clean language into a workable tool for business.

I love that Lynne and Mariette have created a way of teaching a clean method quickly and with a hands on approach you can actually apply from a book!

If you have been interested in clean language or the use of metaphor in a business contexts and wondering how that might happen, this is a book for you.

One of the challenges of Clean Language is that it has a lot of moving parts and can get quite deep, quickly. The beauty of this book is that it dramatically eases the learning curve and creates a practical, effective application of Clean Language that's simple - anyone can use the tools in this book. Further, the authors accomplish this without losing any of the powerful impact that Clean is known for. The book is step by step with thorough, clear examples, and addresses common issues and objections so the reader feels prepared and ready to go. Another boon of the book is that it offers ways to use the tools in many applications outside of a complete coaching process - it's great for teachers, managers, sales people ... really anyone who wants a way of working with others that allows the other person to learn and grow according to THEIR best way of doing things.

These authors are exemplary exponents of their craft and there is much to learn from them. Whether you make The Five-Minute Coach your coaching method of choice or you use it as an add-on to your existing way of coaching you will be astounded by the results. And you'll make even more of a contribution if you integrate clean questions into your everyday conversations so that asking them becomes a natural way of supporting people to trust their own counsel. It is only then that you will discover the true value of this book.
