How SF impacts perception

ronald-warnecke & Annie Bordeleau Foreword by Annie Bordeleau Many colleagues in Ronald’s work environment describe him as someone who is staying ahead of the game, fully dedicated to finding new and effective ways of supporting individuals and teams in their development. We had crossed paths many times, promising to meet up soon to exchange ideas on workshop design and Solution Focus. It is only recently that we finally grabbed a coffee and a meeting room to start exploring with this interview.

The “Users Guide to the Future” as a Coaching Tool

Mark McKergow and Peter Röhrig Article Model In their book “Host – Six New Roles of Engagement” (2014, pp.45 – 59) Mark McKergow and Helen Bailey present the following model which illuminates the responsiveness of hosting and helps Host Leaders (and indeed SF workers) think about where to put their focus; how to connect long-term hopes and objectives with short-term action. It outlines a way of working with uncertainty that is both efficient – getting lots of action for less effort – and responsive to the unfolding future.

Treasured Article - A Jewel From the Treasure Chest of SF Articles

Katalin Hankovszky and peter-szabo A review of Peter Szabó’s article by Katalin Hankovszky Peter’s article (see PDF below) was first published in German in the late 90’s, in Switzerland. The primer publication contained a larger coaching study, conducted in client organisations of the publisher, and further articles on coaching.

The article was spread also in English for several years as a description of solution focused conversations in the context of coaching.

Clarifying Complexity With Cynefin

Chris Corrigan, Klaus Schenck Introduced by Klaus Schenck Left unattended, order decays by itself (states the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics). On the other hand, in nature and organisations, life reverses that decay, creates “order from noise”, and “surfs on the edge of chaos”. The “Cynefin” framework, which Chris Corrigan introduces in this webinar, adds three more options or “domains”, beyond order and chaos, to its map of the world.
