‘Resource gossip’ or ‘positive gossip’ is a very useful SF tool when it comes to create lightness, awareness of observed competences and skills. And at the same time it trains participants in focussing on the potential of a person or groups of people.

First time I met it was in my Solutionsurfers Brief-Coach training and since then I’ve been using it as much as I can when working with large groups as well.

I just came across an article from Coert Visser where he describes the benefits of positive gossip.

What surprised me is that not only the person who is “gossiped” about benefits from it but also people who do the gossip feel better about them selves.

It feels good to do good.
