Dear Stefanie,

What nice to read that you're so enthousiastic. For the Sol conference in Texel I'm sitting in the advise group. That will be the first time I join the Sol conference. I hope we will see each other. If I play the piano depends on the spirit of the moment.

Thank you for the compliments, it feels like a warm bath...I started trying play when I was six years old accordeon and I had one year piano lessons at my 11th. I listened to beatles and stones and so on and obviously I learned by doing....

My other passions are...Driving nice sportscar (especially Morgan) and designing in every sens...

Now I like to know what are your passions (beside asking good questions)

Warm regards

Dear Jan,

thanks! I am an absolut beginner in terms of Worldwide or European events around the SF approach or Brief Therapy, this year was the first time I joined the SOLworld - and I loved it. Next year I´ll be on/in Texel for sure (even thinking about cycling there by bike). Are you in the organization Team? And/or will I see you there playing live?

This year I get trained by Kirsten Dierolf in SF-work in Organisational Change Processes. There are three more workshops to come. It´s fun and very helpful for my work in organisations.

So, curious again: How do you manage to do so impressingly well in music, if music is just one of your passions? And, may I ask, what are your other passions?

Warm regards,

Dear Jan,

I heard your music with the SF quotes from Coert. I am very much impressed, and like your wunderful music.
Kind regards,
Stefanie Kirschbaum

Thanks Jan!

hello Jan!

That is a very nice memory for me. Your piano was just excellent and I enjoyed singing. I am so glad that I was able to express my thoughts about SF and gratitude towards the founders in front of Insoo.

See you in Texel, maybe?

Hello Jan,
Nice meeting you here in this exciting SOLWORLD.





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…
