Irini, Rita, and Symelia did a wonderful job at organising and hosting a great event! Such a special time!

This is the second SOL Retreat I have attended, and for those who have never been, I would want you to know that these are indeed rare and special opportunities to live and work alongside other committed SF enthusiasts, to talk and to share ideas, aspirations, best hopes, plans, etc. The programmes have been entirely Open Space, some sessions being those that someone has already delivered to a client as training, others just exploring an SF theme or idea in a small group - and also some crazy fun stuff, early morning Yoga, letter-writing, mindfulness, Tango, improve, a horse, dancing, etc. Such a different experience from any conference or training I have been on before - so, highly recommended!!

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…
