SFP 11 - Episode 11: Language of Hope: Interview with Haesun Moon
“Teach in a way that people are becoming observers of their own work.”
„She looked at us and she said, ‘you know I am leaving today, (…) I just wanted to let you know that because of the conversations you had with me, I am dying with hope.’ (…) And I hear so many stories from this palliative team that is just doing amazing work, working with people who are at the last stages, using Solution Focused coaching or Solution Focused dialogue. (…) And now that algorithm is being implemented in all the hospitals, so that’s being used as a reference or guide.”
„The algorithm is kind of providing the direction of a conversation: So that your focus is finding out what they care about, what they want and what is important.“Haesun Moon

- The Challenge of the week – Complaining exercise: You are pairing up, one person is complaining, the other person is listening for 5 solid minutes, then the listener gives the complaining person a feedback on what the person is caring about.
