INSPIRED BY CLEAN LANGUAGE.
Judy Rees is WeActivateTheFuture’s clean language expert. Judy is known worldwide as a practical implementer of an inquiry methodology called Clean Language, and is the co-author of the bestselling book on the topic, Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors and Opening Minds. Her work to develop more effective communication across distributed groups began as one of these implementations: one-on-one coaching over Skype and Zoom is another. She also teaches practical Clean Language skills to Agile coaches and other business change agents.
A former journalist and media executive based in London, UK, Judy hold a European Media Masters degree and I’m a Fellow and Fellowship Councillor of the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce).
These are some of the things Judy helps people and organisations to do:
- Make learning, feedback and development inevitable
- Develop what you know: discover what you don’t
- Accelerate collaboration in diverse, distributed networks
- Feel better understood, while understanding others more deeply
- Create effective spaces for creativity and innovation
- Handle the realities of complexity, uncertainty and not-knowing.
“Judy was able to use her expert skills with Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling to help me discover what I really wanted – and from there I developed a whole metaphor landscape for my future.” Andrea Chiou.
“As a facilitator she has a wonderful knack of directing the attention, guiding you where necessary and stepping back to allow you to develop your own model and solutions. Many people talk about the importance of collaboration, particularly as we increasingly work more remotely these days. Judy reveals a practical toolbox of collaboration techniques that actually help you see and understand yourself and others in a new light. As a result you work work better together – more productively and more enjoyably.” David Stuart
