Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

Those of you within reach of London might be interested to come along to monthly meetings of a recently-established London SF group. It includes practitioners from organisations, coaches, therapists - a lively mix. We have a facilitated group discussion for about 90 minutes, then sometimes people go for a meal together. (Lasagne last time).

The next meeting is on 6:00 pm Tuesday 7th October at The Rising Sun, 38 Cloth Fair, London, EC1A 7JQ. Near Farringdon and Barbican tube.

Please let David Taylor know if you'd like to come, so he can reserve enough space.

Subsequent dates are:
Wed 5th Nov
Tue 2nd Dec
Wed 7th Jan
Tue 3rd Feb

Hope to see you at a meeting soon.

Hi, what are the 2009 London dates? Hope to make it one of these days!
Hi Zarine

Here are the dates for London group meetings.

Tue 7 April
Wed 6 May
Tue 2 Jun
Wed 1 Jul
Tue 4 Aug
Wed 2 Sep

For April and May, we've booked La Grande Marque on Ludgate Hill (downstairs club room) from 6 pm to 8.30 pm.

The format for a meeting of up to 2 hours:

Each event is hosted by Host of the Month.

We'll have taking of turns to host, decided either month by month, or a bit further in advance. Host ensures the meeting runs to time, according to the plan, or facilitates a change in plan if that seems more appropriate.
Ensures everyone gets a fair turn in, for example, the Hello section.

1 As people arrive, about 30 minutes free-for-all conversation, drink-buying, gossip, whatever.

2 Saying Hello; a hosted 20' round of a solutions-focused saying hello
eg, Something going well this week - for each person to introduce themselves.

3 Topic of the session. This may be a topic that emerges from the Hello section, that the host discovers is what people want to discuss. It may be a Reflecting Team on someone's issue. It may be a presentation by a guest or a regular member. The topic may be announced in advance - eg if it's a guest who will lead something - or may emerge on the night. But there will be something, and it will be facilitated either by the host or by someone else present.

4 London Chapter agenda items - eg eg dates, hosts, speakers, news, etc).

5 Remaining time - free-for-all





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…
