Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations
I’ve just spent three days on a tennis court, learning the intricacies of the Inner Game – and beyond – with a group of sports coaches led by former US tennis pro Sean Brawley. I went with two aims.
One was to improve my tennis and the other was to clarify the resonances between Inner Game (IG) and Solutions Focus (SF). Here’s how the best bits of Inner Game make sense to me, in an amalgam with SF.

In der letzten Ausgabe der Zeitschrift OrganisationsEntwicklung (3/13, S.4ff) berichtet Manfred Kets de Vries von seinen effektiven Erfahrungen mit Gruppencoachings mit Führungskräften.
"Verglichen mit Einzelcoachings (...) erscheint uns Gruppen- oder Teamcoaching effektiver. Es produziert mehr Veränderungsmöglichkeiten und Wendepunkte (Tipping Points) - diese Momente plötzlicher Erkenntnis, die zu positiven Veränderungen führen.

I am looking for some ideas / references for a future perfect sequence that I want to do with a large group of approx. 400 people. I have only a timeframe of one hour! So of course we will travel on the surface. But this can/should be a start of something that follows. Who has done such a thing, and has any ideas how to do it in a exciting, funny way?
