"Waiting for the right moment is vital part of hosting and leadership" worth (re)reading: Mark McKergow's Host Leadership

Comment by Monika Houck on July 8, 2013 at 8:05

Hello Dominik,

to be most useful for the concept of your book and the future readers it would be good to understand;

What is the difference you expect a story to make?

For whom do you write the book? 

What would be most important for future readers?

What do you want to learn?

A short answer would help me to decide whether I can contribute something valuable for others...

Have a very nice start of the week

Hi everyone,

Thanks to Ramu Iyer, I thought that I could post that here:

I am looking for SF Leadership success stories (stories of SF applications in a Leadership position, either as line manager or in projects, What did you do, how did you do it, what were the effects, also what were the difficulties you experienced as Leader, how did you deal with that) that can/will be published in a book about SFL. The book will appear in German first and will then be translated in English. Therefore, you can either send me your story in German or in English. If it is in English, I will translate it.

I know that this is at short notice: If you would like to contribute, I need your article by July 12. The article should be no longer than 7000-8000 characters with spaces and it should not have been published before.

If you want to join, please get in contact with me through email or just send me your story.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Hi all, I'm glad to be a part of this wonderful group. Does anyone of you know if there is a research carried out to see the effectiveness of Solution-focused leadership because I'm a research student and this is my topic.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Hi all,
might be of interest to some of you. I recently applied sf principles and tools during an operations assessment in a telecoms operations centre in India. I have written up this report as part of the the SF professional certification. Our final training session with Mark McKergow and Jenny Clarke is on January 16 2009 in London.

In the meantime i am keen to connect to anyone who has applied or is interested in applying SF tools in the Telecom or IT industry.

Wishing all SF ning members a happy 2009!

Hello all,
Solutions focused leadership seems even more appropriate now with the economic challenges the world is working through. I wonder if marketing the need to help leaders (and their teams) focus on solutions when the fear is so likely to push people into rigid and uncreative stances?
Any thoughts?

Hello all,

I'm excited that we're keeping the leadership development piece going. I've already used some of the ideas I learned during my Open Space gathering. Thank you to all that attended!

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…
