Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

Found this video. Quiet interesting aspect.
"Can words really account for only 7 percent of the meaning of a spoken message? This short video animation puts 'Mehrabian's rule' under the magnifying glass..."

PS: it still proves (to me) that in a coaching situation words mean more than non-verbal communication.
Corrected: What I really mean is that in a coaching session non-verbal communication means the same and sometimes more than words. Sorry just see that now....

(thanks to: for finding it).

Dear Jesper! Thanks for posting this little video. I heard this story before and never believed in it. A very funny and convincing video. Have a great year and looking forward to see you in Hungary. Warm regards Petra

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…
