“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

Show Notes

In today’s episode, we talk with Haesun Moon, Co-Director of the Canadian Centre for Brief Coaching, about

  • what fascinates Haesun about Solution Focus
  • what fascinates her about microanalysis of face-to-face dialogue (To learn more about microanalysis check out episode number 10)
  • what differences microanalysis makes for her as a teacher and as a person
  • how microanalysis enhances «real life» learning – from day one on of the Solution Focused Coaching training
  • how dialogue cannot be divided and is the smallest unit to study
  • the importance of microanalysis for everyone in dialogic practice
  • the heart touching story of how «Language of Hope» came about
  • how this changed Haesun’s life
  • how she wants to see that dialogues change at home, at school and at work place
  • Haesun’s thesis and the way she studies «hope» in dialogue
  • how there is always another way of looking at things and how your choice of looking at dialogue is worthwile to observe
  • 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. Listen with the filter: what does that person really care about?
