SFP 19 - Episode 19: At the round table with Alan Kay: Solution Focused applications

by Elfie Czerny & Dominik Godat | Simply Focus Podcast | 24:32

„What’s so valuable for me about Solution Focus (…) is to go and ask question that help the client to see that they do know what to do, it’s just not clear to them.“

„What can be done differently, more of or better? And I say more of because sometimes there are things we are doing that are working, but we don’t pay enough attention to them.“

„The difficult, angry situations that you go in to, it’s not easy because people will not want you around initially and it can be a bit stressful, but you win them over so quickly, because of Solution Focus“ 

Alan Kay
