Welcome to Clean Language
Welcome to Clean Language: a way to inspire greater understanding through better conversations. Conversations that foster understanding, resolve conflicts, drive innovation, build relationships, promote mental health, advance education, achieve political and social progress, address global challenges, and empower individuals.
Clean Language helps us to develop mutual clarity so that we can align our perspectives, get clear on what matters, what we'd like to have happen, and what's needed.
By improving our shared understanding, we can work together better in collaborative teams and networks; improve the quality of information on which we base our decisions; and ultimately create a more harmonious and prosperous world.
