Ingrid Reisch Dipl.Psych. Univ. started to study Solution Focus in 1994 with Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg. She was an internal HR Manager at that time and had already had many years of experience in management and leadership development, systemic coaching and change management.
Using the solution focused approach in coaching, teamcoachings and change management is a fantastic way to cooperate with people’s unique competencies and potential. Ingrid is persistent and target oriented and at the same time she has a great sense of humour – and it shows in her work.
Ingrid has been managing partner of ReischReisch Solutions since 1999. In her clients portfolio you can find international companies like Allianz, Audi, Cisco Systems, Roche as well as public organisations and hospitals.
The clients were dealing with low morale, poor internal communication and a need to improve performance. Guided by a series of experiential exercises, periods of reflection and discussion, participants were able to articulate their own resources, express their goals in a clear and concrete way and commit to achievable steps towards those goals. Through the use of role play of problematic situations (for example an appraisal interview with an underperforming employee; dealing with a difficult member of staff; conflict situations), participants’ confidence in tackling day-to-day challenges in the workplace was greatly enhanced. The atmosphere in the room moved from coolly professional to warmly constructive cooperation and mutual affirmation.
