If you look for it
– you will see it.
It’s a project. And it’s evolving. Sort of.
So what’s it about?
It’s about my 15-20 years of experience in the field of large group processes. Working with the concepts of World Café and Open Space and since 2008 putting it into a solution focused (SF) context have made me want to put into words what I do, how I do it, and why I think it’s working so well.
And I also want to look at, write about and share the thoughts of those people who inspire me and influence the way I think large group processes.
Who is this for?
To be honest: Me. I want to figure out what I am doing. Well, I know that what I do is working well – otherwise clients wouldn’t come back and I wouldn’t be able to make a living out of it.
It’s good to know what doesn’t work,
but it’s really helpful to know what does.
Steve de Shazer
I’m a practitioner. And I like to play. And improvise. And I have a basic respect for other people.
I think those are some of the key ingredients in what I do well. So let’s explore this and see if I manage to bring my knowhow out into the world.
This web-site is to be seen as a sketch-book. It has a kind of structure but it’s fare from finished.
