Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations
A lively group of about a dozen people gathered last night for the monthly meeting of the London SF Group.
As is our custom, we started the meeting by introducing ourselves with a few words about what we had been pleased to notice recently or what was going well for us. The conversation then turned to the topic of the conduct of the monthly meetings: what would we like to see? Working in 3 groups, we generated a long list – and we’d welcome more ideas from any SF practitioner with easy access to central London, whether you have ever attended a meeting or not. This is what we came up with:
We discussed the location – the wine bars we use give us the room for nothing which means that we don’t have to charge for the meetings. Does the location put some people off? – Please let us know.
We discussed the format:
We briefly discussed “positive promotion” – how to bring the world’s attention to SF. It is already used in a wide variety of settings but how do we inspire people who don’t know about it? Using blogs and twitter were seen as valuable resource. #solutionfocus has already been set up in twitter-land – we don’t know by whom.
Great stuff Jenny, I'm yet to make a meeting but I do hang out a little here on line. When is the next meeting? I come in from Ely, so have to wend my way from Kings Cross usually but I am in London often. I have told a few in my network about it who are looking for high quality learning/fun networks in London. I hope to be more involved myself, as travel & work schedules permit
Thank you Zarine The next meeting is on 7 March from 6pm till 8 pm. I'm not sure of the venue (it will probably be a wine bar in the Holborn area) but if you send me your e-address (I'm at email@example.com) I'll pass it to Kidge who will send you an invitation with the details.
