"Hello. what a fast-growing group, which surely shows the interest in SF out there. I just wanted to say that many of us, I would guess, are not only teaching 'how to do SF' but also training on lots of other topics using an SF approach. I…"

"Hello Paul and all, This is just what I've been looking for. I must be no. 26. I'm about to leave my NHS work and focus much more on freelance training so this will be invaluable. All the best to all, Carole"

Hi Carole,Thanks for your comments, very interesting. At the first of a set of 6 AL sets I intend to get them familiar with SF questionning by first introducing exercises that emphasise the importance of listening. I participated in a 'what do you want to think about?' exercise at Mark McKergow's SF training which was simple, practical and very effective in getting the message across. I'll let you know how it goes! All the best Pat

Hi Carole, thank you for your welcome. I look forward to sharing experiences with you and others, especially relating to how we can positively influence NHS professionals using SF. I am currently designing and facilitating a leadership programmefor ward sisters. My next workshop is introducing the concept of action learning using a SF approach. How have you used SF in groups for clinical supervision?
Best wishes, Pat

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…
