Im Kurz-Workshop mit Barbara Vogel geht es um Entscheidungsprozesse im/mit dem Team
Anton Stellamans and Jonas Wells are hosting a space, once a month, for SF Creative Silence workshops all through January to June this year. Time spent here has shown itself to be very engaging and very useful - and a lot of fun - so we’d like to continue to offer these spaces during 2021!
On June 11th 2021, we plan for a one-day online event. We envision a mix of talks, lightning talks (about 10 minutes), interactive workshops, book presentations, research presentations as well as a colourful and lively Open Space for all the topics that arise spontaneously. Be our guest .
Alex Steele on the piano and Dom on the saxophone take us through an entrancing journey. A journey where you can truly stretch your SF beliefs as never before, as they work with what is there and fully accept the offerings of others to move forward.

elvira-kalmer Introduced by Annette Gray Elvira Kalmar presents an inspiring Case Study session on how, as an Organisational Development consultant, she worked in a Solution Focus way with her client Invitech to bring about an agile transformation fast and with incredible lightness. Elvira engaged me as she described her approach (or lack of process as she explained), allowing the client to be the expert in their world, helping them define what agile transformation would look like and co-creating the steps along the way.
Carey Glass Reviewed by Carey Glass The Next Generation of Solution Focused Practice is Mark McKergow’s magnum opus. Since discovering SF’s world-changing paradigm shift in practice and thought, Mark has maintained his steadfast determination, insatiable curiosity and exceptional single-minded focus to explore and unearth understandings of what makes SF so powerful and how that happens so uniquely. His new book brings the fruits of this exploration into print. You can feel the years of thought in its pages.
Julia Kalenberg is a Swiss based coach and trainer who predominately works in organisations. Less known about Julia, however is that she also has a long track record as a coach of many succesful professional or semi professional sailors. And that is precisely the focus of this interview: How she uses Solution Focus in sports coaching.
Morgan Lewis Introduced by Annie Bordeleau In this talk, Morgan Lewis shares his SF journey to support young athletes in finding their confidence and connecting to their excellence. Using solution focus questions when coaching the athletes, he engages in a quest to gather evidence of competence, to nurture their self-confidence and self-belief. Watching this video prompted me to think more deeply about how I engage with my team.
In Singapore, some parents have such high expectations of their children’s education that they often unfairly place the responsibility on teachers for their children’s well-being at school. In this parent-teacher bonding workshop, the goal is to help facilitate a bond between parents and teachers so that they work together collaboratively to foster a nurturing environment for their children at home and school.
Mark McKergow & John Brooker Introduced by John Brooker Do you, like me, long for more of a community feel in your local area? Like Mark McKergow, I spent much time travelling before COVID came along and, when home, created connections locally as best I could, e.g. as a dad meeting parents at the school gates, as Chair of my local scouts. Sadly that connection ended when no longer involved in school or Scouts.
De Chapter of the Lowlands verenigt alle Nederlandstalige SFiO Contributors.
We komen 2 keer per jaar samen, om beurten in Vlaanderen en Nederland. Er is ruimte voor netwerking, intervisie én we laten ons stimuleren door een interessante spreker. We wisselen af tussen een theoretische bijdrage, een praktische toepassing van SF en inspiratie uit een ander domein.
l “chapter” italiano della SFIO nasce con l’intento di condividere e divulgare l’Approccio focalizzato alle soluzioni nelle organizzazioni. Durante gli incontri che organizziamo diamo spazio a scambio di pratiche, intervisione, contaminazioni da altri approcci, condivisione di articoli e libri, networking.
Les réunions par le Chapiter français SFiO sont destinées à l’échange de pratiques, à l’intervision, au partage d’articles et de livres, au réseautage. La structure et le déroulement de ces réunions incarnent elles-mêmes les principes Solution Focus.
Ideea de a pune bazele unui chapter Solution Focus in Organizations a apărut în cadrul conferinței SOL World CEE 2018. Ca și organizatori ai acestei conferințe și ca și practicieni solution focus, ne-a plăcut mult să lucrăm împreună și am dorit să continuăm să o facem, să ne dezvoltăm și să oferim valoare comunității.
The UK SFiO Chapter holds three meetings each year in London and/or in Leeds. We currently focus our meetings around a workshop of around 1.5 to 2 hours in length with some great speakers.
