A worthy ready for team and organizational Change Agents

Recommend for all people wanting to work in the field of interpersonal improvement, especially in OD, agile transformation, team coaches and related disciplines.

Love that Caitlin is the narrator of her own book and compelling life story. She has great vocal qualities and narration especially when animating the dialogues from her interventions...

You do miss out on the lovely illustrations from the book, so recommend the book as well.

Life-Changing Work

Caitlin's work changed my entire world in the span of around 5 hours and 43 minutes, the length of this narrated book. Clean language makes sense to me, albeit I have to work constantly to "get it" and use it well - still a work in progress. Caitlin's contribution to the work David Grove started, however, is miraculous. It is obvious that systemic modelling demonstrates faith in others' abilities to find their own truths; and, coupled with the modeller taking a neutral stance, the outcomes can be astonishing.

Clean Language case studies and far more....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely Yes. I have found that audiobook so inspirational that I have listen to it already twice. My journey with Clean Language have just started and I found it very useful. I was more then happy to listen how the work developed. Explanation of processes and shared experiences of application of Systemic modelling growing and evolving with years make me feel curious and hungry for more.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Caitlin Walker is great writer and I love her self - developing and collaborative nature. What I liked the most is her narrative personal touch. When she reads her book it feels like you are there in the experience - part of it. Very educative.

Have you listened to any of Caitlin Walker’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. I watched her DVD about Clean Language & Symbolic Modelling. This audiobook is different. Much more real life scenarios and real case studies. You can see examples where and how she and her teams applied clean language approach. You will find here broad explanations of tools and outcomes.This is much more Story behind development .DVD is more practical experience from workshop. Both excellent in my opinion.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It make me laugh many times, and recall my personal life situation when I was exactly in the same or similar situation ....what a shame I did not have the tools yet to deal with conflicts in the ways described.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend any Caitlin's work.

Compelling cultural change how to guide.

I really enjoyed this book and am exciting to put the methods to work so that I can influence behaviour, away from command and control to empowered and engaged cross-functional teams.

Absolutely Amazing! Life Changing.

I am finishing listening to the narration of this book at 3:45am in the morning. It has absolutely gripped me and although I may not find it easy to get outside of my comfort zone to take this onboard. I absolutely believe there is a need to do just that, for my personal growth and hopefully pay forward the messages and ideas to people I know and not yet to know. There are certain moments when something resonates with you such as a great teacher. I honestly felt like this. I just hope on my journey I do this book and Caitlin the justice it deserves. Thank you so much. I loved the narration. There so many individuals and areas that this book could be the beginning of such a positive step in the right direction. Apologies for the essay in this review and maybe I should have used clean feedback. I loved this book.

Really good listen

Great listen but just looked for a pdf for the diagrams that are in the book. It would be five stars if the diagrams could be added as a pdf for download.
