Thanks for your note, Colin. I really enjoyed the influence workshop and conversations. I'm hoping to present on "Language of Positive Influence" in Oxford. Are you going to be at Oxford?

Hi Colin,
I'm happy to hear that the workshop included the PLUS microtools. I'd love to learn more about how you used it at tate. I will be taking the micro-tools along for J-Sol this summer for the post-conference workshop, so any real-life cases is of great help.

Be well

Hi Colin. If you're interested in coming along to the London gathering, would you let me have you're email address to add to my main list? Thanks and have a great weekend! David.

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

Hello Colin,
still remember very well how you taught me the 1minute briefest coaching in Vienna. Love and apply it a lot.... Hope to see you in Texel. Monika

dear Colin, still remeber how I met you in Vienna. The one minute coaching exercise you introduced there - was one of my most valuable experiences. Love and use it a lot in daily practise. and teach it... Hope to see you in Texel Monika

Hi again Colin. 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.

Hi Colin,
yes, that'd be great. I'll try to give you a call today or tomorrow (then I'm away for a week). Thanks for persisting with me!

Dear Colin. I learnd speed coaching with you, didn't I? And I hope to see you in Texel.

Hi Colin,
that's great, many thanks - I'll give you a call,

Hi Colin, saw your post about 90min learning bites - I have similar problems (people too busy to take whole day for training) and opportunities (I'm based in-house so can do short sessions). Would love to hear more about what works for you. (I've been doing an OSKAR coaching course in 2 hour/month chunks and its going OK - the jury's still out, to be honest. Another time I think I'd use 2.5 hours - after reviewing and before setting up "homework" there's not much time for input in-between!)
take care

Hi Colin

Thanks for joining us so quickly!




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…
