„So with a formula you are instructed or expected to know it exactly as it is. With a story you are invited to hear as it appeals to you.“

„And that also resonates with what’s at the heart of the Solution Focused community, which is whatever we practice has been passed on to us by so many professionals, but also, and let’s not forget that, by so many clients who are willing to let us be part of their learning.”

Hannes Couvreur

“It’s just amazing what can arise when we are clear about our preferred future and that’s really a big big learning for me throughout this journey I am very very grateful for.“

„That reminds me of the story that I love to tell myself and that we love to tell each other that friendpower is so much stronger than willpower. And the one thing was back home when we talked about our preferred future, when we talked about signs of progress, when we talked about the things we want to see come true in our lives it was beautiful to talk to each other about that, it was even more powerful to talk to others about that.”

Elfie Czerny

“And this reminds me of how important it is to notice that your preferred future is coming true right at that moment.“

„And since then we’re really aware of those moments when the preferred future shows up because the preferred future shows up so many times, so often in our life and probably in your life and it’s not that easy to really spot that, to highlight that, and to amplify that through just mentioning it and doing more of that or just enjoying it.“

Dominik Godat

    Dear Elfie and Dominik, I wanted to share that I’m so grateful for this project of yours. I often meet SF Practioners who feel alone. If I may quote Kermit the Frog, it is hard sometimes to be green. It could feel like that when other colleagues have a different colour (a problem-focused colour). They will say that it takes courage sometimes to hold that stance. Not everybody can go to Conferences to be surrounded by people who have decided to work and to look at clients in a different way. By sharing those conversations, you will help them realize that it is everywhere and there are so many credible people who work that way.
    Thank you so much, hoping for more!

And that it might help them to stay focused and realize that SF is everywhere and that there are so many credible and incredible people who work that way. There will for sure come more!
