By actual application of the tech Word Clearers can obtain much higher results and wins. Several recent examples have come up where some top tech and admin personnel were not duplicating issues and instructions yet they had been word cleared on these materials with no MUs found. When word cleared again by someone who really knew his business the MUs came off for hours with a resurgence of activity at the end. In a number of the cases success stories were written about never having found a misunderstood word before! All of the examples cited had the following common denominators:
1. The Word Clearer could really handle a meter and make a question read.
2. The Word Clearers had personal certainty on the workability of Word Clearing and could apply it exactly and find MUs to rave results.
The fact that most Word Clearing starts off with the phrase “I am not auditing you” does not mean that TRs and metering do not apply. Quite the contrary they are vital skills that need to be kept sharp by daily TRs just like any auditor and a weekly or monthly Qual check on TR 1 and the ability to make a question read. The reason is quite simple. A Word Clearer must grasp that all forms of Word Clearing that he can apply, either metered or unmetered, were developed to help the individual find the MUs he was unable to find himself. One must assume that the person has already looked up all the MUs he could find (it is after all an ethics offense to fail to clarify words not understood) and is now putting himself in the hands of the Word Clearer to find any MUs that may be just beyond his awareness. Any lack of impingement on metered Word Clearing or reasonableness about slips and slurs or missed definitions on non-metered Word Clearing will leave a person “knowing” he has no MUs but wondering why he still has difficulty with the subject or post.
It may just be that people who find themselves resistive to Word Clearing have not grasped these points either, and wonder why they need Word Clearing when they don’t “think” they have MUs.
Word Clearing works. There is no shortage of people who can attest to that. The only times Word Clearing would seem to fail would be if there were errors such as:
a) No reads or missed reads.
b) Ignored slips and flubs in non-metered Word Clearing.
c) Getting off into considerations or confusions without getting to the MUs that always exist at the bottom and then getting the MUs fully defined.
The remedy is simple. If one has been word cleared on an area without a resolution of the original difficulty then MUs have been missed and one need only report right back to a Word Clearer and say “I want my MUs found!” In some cases a WCCL may be required, but more often than not it’s just find the missed MUs.
For anyone who has not yet experienced what it’s like to find a real MU then just report to a Word Clearer and pick any subject or area of difficulty and start getting the MUs found until the subject or area now makes sense. Continue this on as many subjects as needed to leave no doubt as to the workability of Word Clearing. (The case gain from a real MU found can sometimes rival the biggest wins in auditing.) Any Word Clearer must have this certainty and pass it on to those he word clears.
The wins and gains are there for the taking. A better functioning org with highly productive staff and public is the reward. You deserve it. Just follow the tech as laid out in the Word Clearing Series and you will have it.
