SFP 61 - Episode 61: Crossing Paths: Solution Focused Practices and Community Building in Slovakia with Andrea Schovancová and Marek Koreň
“What is this first microstep which I can do and what is the evidence that things are moving or improving?”
“We have a vision at GGB to have self-realized people, to have the leaders who are able to work with human potential, and have skills to create a learning environment. And Solution Focus is great for this, for fulfilling this vision.”
“We implement a lot of tools in current processes like recruitment, talent review, performance management, lean approach, preparing business strategy. And I would say, in a very easy way, it’s inviting people in every area of the company to be part of the decision making process.”
“I provide the choice for leaders to join or not and provide enough time to decide what is most effective for them.”Andrea Schovancová
“This is a nice example which can be also used in our daily interactions: Instead of the problems we can ask what we would like to have instead.”
“By defining what we want and by defining what really works and what we would like to keep, (we can) simply do more of it. This also in the same moment opened the door for changes, which were even more and much faster accepted by the people.”
“You can also ask yourself, what you would like to celebrate.”Marek Koreň
