Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

  • Are you ready to inspire yourself in Solution focused work?
  • In a way that is tailor-made for you?




  • Spending some days in a castle in Belgian flatland
  • Getting inspiration from the surroundings, a group of marvellous people and yourself
  • Within a Solution Focus setting, doing (or not doing J) just what is right for you now
  • Creating space to inspire yourself in just the way you need at this moment. By exchanging ideas and experiences. Discussing exactly those Solution focused topics you would like to discuss. Asking questions. Testing a workshop. Or sitting a day under the apple tree because this is useful or fun.

In the SOL Summer Retreat we have no program. We have our own questions, freshness and experience, enthusiasm, knowledge and wonderings. We have wonderful surroundings. And the intention to make these days inspiring and nourishing.

With the help of the open space method we create opportunities to do just what is right, helpful, useful and fun for us in this moment.

Last years this worked out great, so we organisers are looking forward to another Summer Retreat. When we opened registration for the Retreat in December, the Retreat filled quickly halfway in a day. And then everybody hurried into Christmas and New Year.

So we are happy to be able to announce that we still have some place in the retreat!

And be very welcome to join us in this wonderful experience. Questions? Do you want to consult us before you inscribe? Mail to


See for information and registration

Looking forward to seeing you,

organisers Joost van Iersel, Ruth Stoffel Kauflin, Rita Klemmayer, Yvonne van Iersel.

I just visited the site of the Chateau in preparation for, hopefully, registering for the retreat, and noted that neither the German nor the English version of the website are working. Maybe you could alert the people at the Chateau to this? SOLers are a bright bunch, and most are probably fluent in Flemish and French but still ...






Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
