Schöne Lernerfahrungen einer Studentin, die den lösungsfokussierten Ansatz zum ersten Mal in einem Change-Projekt anwendet. Und es zeigt sich wieder „It’s simple, but not easy!“: Es lohnt sich sehr die einfachen lösungsfokussierten Grundsätze anzuwenden und in der Umsetzung ist dies gar nicht so einfach!

„The SF process was difficult – I found that when discussing current conditions I often wanted to focus on the past! – but effective. Sticking to the agenda of focusing on the current conditions, future conditions, strengths, scaling, and commitment levels at each client meeting was the hardest part. Learning to listen and guide the conversation by using the right language was challenging but efficient in continuing the process. One thing I need to focus on in order to further develop is making sure I use affirmative language, and ensure that topics and themes are discussed are actionable terms. I gained a lot of confidence by learning something completely new!

Und hier die ganze Geschichte erzählt von David E. Weber:

„Hello. This semester (January to May 2015) I worked with a fourth-year student named Sara on a directed individual study (D.I.S.) project. This kind of project involves a professor working one-to-one with a student in order for the student to learn, often experientially, what he or she would not necessarily learn in the classroom.

Sara spent 16 weeks with me last semester (August to December 2014) as one of 16 students enrolled in an organizational communication module. Over a period of several days, I taught the basic „pieces of the puzzle“ for taking an SF approach to facilitating change. More than any other student, Sara wanted to try out and amplify, expand and extend those basic skills. So she arranged for a D.I.S. this semester, and arranged to serve as a solutions-focus consultant with a local church that was facing some challenges revolving around change.

Sara and I would meet once a week. I would coach her on learning a certain set of steps that she would then, a day or two later, perform during a meeting with members of the client organization (primarily working with the pastor of the church). At our next session, we would debrief her experience, and then I would coach her in learning the next set of steps. And so it went.

Sara completed the four-month consulting project about a week ago. Today she submitted to me a project report, several pages long. From that report, I would like to share the following paragraph, in which Sara reflects on her hands-on experience learning and working with SF tools:

„Doing this D.I.S. has been one of the best learning experiences I have ever had. It was a great opportunity to learn a process and then be able to practice it. I discovered that I really enjoyed consulting even though it was a lot different than I thought it would be. The SF process was difficult–I found that when discussing current conditions I often wanted to focus on the past!–but effective. Sticking to the agenda of focusing on the current conditions, future conditions, strengths, scaling, and commitment levels at each client meeting was the hardest part. Learning to listen and guide the conversation by using the right language was challenging but efficient in continuing the process. One thing I need to focus on in order to further develop is making sure I use affirmative language, and ensure that topics and themes are discussed are actionable terms. I gained a lot of confidence by learning something completely new!“

Thanks to all of YOU for inspiring me to work with Sara in this project. Sara did all the work, however; I never met the client, or even talked with organizational personnel on the phone.
