With SF the best is yet to come - interview with Janine and Paul about 10 years The Solutions Focus

A couple of weeks ago Paul Z Jackson posted the following message on Facebook: "champagne on ice for 10th anniversary celebrations of The Solutions Focus.... many small steps to get this far..."

To which I replied: "Won't ask what you are proud of, nor what you are grateful for, nor how you did this, nor who helped you and how you've made good use of it, let alone ask you what you will do more of (or keep doing), or what you will do differently. Nope won't do all of…

Dear hannes,

It was a pleasure to meet you and so generous of you to share one of your tools through such a great documentation. I'll contact you later about your 'wheel'.

Yours Sussan

Dag Hannes, welkom op SOLworld! Ik ben er zeker van dat je hier massa's interessante ideeën, werkvormen en vooral boeiende mensen zal ontmoeten. Ik kan je ook aanraden om je in te schrijven op de mailing list:




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…
