Over the past three decades, Mark McKergow and Jenny Clarke have worked to bring new ideas about learning, changing and leading into the organisational field. We like things which:
Learning: Accelerated Learning in business settings (where learning increases when you teach less)
Changing: Solutions Focus in coaching, team development and organisational change (where problems are dis-solved by looking at what’s wanted and what’s working)
Leading: Host Leadership, post-heroic leadership by bringing people together (where leaders lead by stepping back as well as stepping forward)
What we do now:
The Solutions Focus:
the classic introduction to SF, now in 11 languages
Solutions Focus Working: the SF casebook, 14 examples of SF in action in organisations
Positive Approaches to Change: articles on SF and Appreciative Inquiry in management
57 SF Activities:
workshop and team event processes from the SF community
The Next Generation of Solution Focused Practice
The latest developments in how SF works by 'stretching the world'
Hosting Generative Change
Creating Containers for Creativity and Commitment
Host: Six new
rules roles of engagement for teams, organizations, communities and movements
The Host Leadership Field Book: Building Engagement for Performance and Results
