Profile Information

Where are you based? (City & Country)
San Francisco CA USA
In which role(s) do you use SF ideas and tools? (You can pick more than one)
Coach, Consultant, Trainer
What is your connection to Solution Focused Work (based on Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer at BFTC Milwaukee and others)?
I practiced therapy for over 35 years, the last 10 as an SF practitioner. My wife and I wrote Recreating Partnership: A Collaborative, Solution-Oriented Approach to Couples Therapy. I retired from therapy practice but now am part of a consulting team that provides OD, strategic planning and coaching to a large and growing American labor union.

I retired from doing SF Therapy and was enjoying all the free time when suddenly I was hooked into joining a consulting team doing OD, leadership and staff training and development and coaching for a large US labor union. I started out doing some coaching and next thing I knew I am directing the coaching program--recruiting, training and supervising the coaches. And assisting at the development and training programs around the country. So much for retirement. And I am working hard to translate my SF therapy experience and skills into the organization and executive coaching field.




Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
