The SOL never stopped shining

This summer has been full of busy, rewarding weeks, but the last couple have been particularly so.

At the same time, both children were taking new buses to new schools – each of them excited, but full of nervous…See More

What is different about solution-focused evaluation? Summary of January meeting

In the London SF Group's first meeting of 2012, Ali Abington facilitated an interactive discussion on the topic, “What is different about solution-focused evaluation?” The session included a two-part exercise in which Ali invited members to think back to an evaluation they had done in the past year and reflect on which aspects of their approach they found to have worked particularly well. She then asked them to consider what different or new elements they might introduce to a ‘best possible’ SF…See More

Profile Information

Where are you based? (City & Country)
Leighton Buzzard, UK
In which role(s) do you use SF ideas and tools? (You can pick more than one)
Coach, Other (please specify it in "About your connection...")
What is your connection to Solution Focused Work (based on Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer at BFTC Milwaukee and others)?
I am a writer and researcher specialising in solution-focused evaluation. I work with coaches and consultants, using an SF approach to capture their clients' learning experiences and turn them into case studies - rich stories of individual and organisational impact.

I combine a passion, knowledge and track record of SF questioning with strong writing and editing skills and an understanding of the business context, gained over 20 years in a range of organisational settings including Ashridge and INSEAD - two of the world's leading business schools.
