ATTENTION! The workshop will be held in English
In this interactive workshop on Solution Focus you will be able to bring in a case for something you would like to have an answer to, a problem, or something you would like to get better at. The workshops are preceded by a lecture, held just before – Friday (16.10.2015) at 14:00.
In our interaction the focus often goes to finding the cause of a problem. Frequently this is a detailed problem analysis, not bringing us much further towards a solution. There is a lot of time and energy spent on the ‘why’ and on what and who contributed to creating or maintaining the problem.
Solution focused discussions are different. They look for what is already working for individual people, teams or whole organisations. They explore how the desired future looks like without a problem. They pay attention to progress people make. Concrete next steps for growth are found quicker and easier.
One application of Solution Focus we will certainly be working on during the workshop, is giving and receiving feedback.
Whilst what we say to others is important, the way we say it can sometimes be even more crucial…
