Hi, I have used SF in my facilitation (or team coaching for our continental colleagues :-) ) for around four years. I have had 100% success with it so far and am still learning. I am particularly interested in linking SF with Creative Problem Solving models (what I call Flexible Thinking)... and also selling.

How many meetings have you been in where you have tried to tackle a problem in a team and it just kept going round in circles?

The following is a true story related by Niklas Tiger, Managing Director of Hi5, an IT organisation in Sweden that provides outsourced IT…

Uncovering Treasure: Influencing with Solution Focus - Report on SFCT UK Chapter call

Loraine pointed out that the article was a workshop paper and that it captured the learning from 3 workshops of 2 hours duration on the topic of Influencing…

Hi John, thanks for your friend request (some days have passed since then as I haven´t been here for longer) - I enjoyed your last gorilla news, as the analogy between sf and your personal hotel night makes it very lively - great stuff! ; )

Hi there. Just a wee reminder of the monthly gathering of SF'ers in London. Specifically at The Rising Sun, 38 Cloth Fair, EC1A 7JQ. Easily Googled.
The next meeting is at 6pm next Tuesday. Maybe see you there?
Best wishes, David

Hi John.

You may (or may not...) know that I run a monthly group for SF'ers in London. So far it's mostly been members of the UKASFP but everyone is of course welcome.

It's held at a pub in Smithfields. To be precise at 6:00 pm next Tuesday 7th October at The Rising Sun, 38 Cloth Fair, London, EC1A 7JQ. Easily Googled.

The next month it'll be on the first Wednesday of the month, the next month the first Tuesday, and so on. But I'll be sending reminders before each gathering.

Really hope you can make it to one or another (or more!) and look forward to meeting you then.

With best wishes, David.

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…
