SFiO Global Chapter - Change Facilitator in Organisations on 31 January 2021

About this Event

Change happens every day, and it’s a constant challenge for organisations of any size.

How can you use the SF framework and language from therapy and coaching in organisations? After all, organisations – for-profit and not-for-profit - have established practices and a language of their own. Think of the difference between a bank and an NGO!

How do we take the SF framework, (what’s already working, suppose we made progress, etc.), and work with the resistance to change that organisations want you to overcome? How can you work with groups, large and small?

Bio: Alan Kay has led and facilitated action-oriented change for his entire career. A fully recovered ad guy, Alan was first trained in Solution Focus at the Hinks-Dellcrest in Toronto. He has since worked using SF for a broad range of sectors and organisations – from banks to children’s aid. The applications he works on for clients include strategic planning, customer experience, and developing student-centric learning environments. His well-received book, ‘Fry the Monkeys, Create a Solution’, has sold in many countries.

Cristina Muehl’s background in compliance, audit, consulting and international business arena made her realise how important coaching was in the corporate world’s current scenario. She learned the Solution Focused approach during her coaching training with Kirsten Dierolf. She had considerable involvement in organising the first SF24 Conference, a virtual SF Conference that spanned the globe in 24 hours, and is adapting business models to incorporate SF values.

Alan Kay learned solution focus from SFBT family therapy trainers. He saw immediate success with business clients by simply translating SF into the client’s language. He offers his clients solutions in strategic and operational planning, customer experience implementation and, more recently SF training and management development. His many clients range from large banks, to educators, to film festival organizers. His work is based on the entire continuum of the engagement; that the change the client wants starts happening right away; be most pronounced in the main activity and sustain afterwards via follow-through.
