About this event

		Team Talk:  Building Better Organisations image

The transformation we are all in is social as well as digital. Organisations are morphing into clusters of teams and groups required to work autonomously, make rapid decisions and at the same time collaborate with each other. There is much work to be done for coaches, executives, team leads, product owners, scrum masters – and indeed the team members themselves.

Organisations wishing to maximise success need to develop new forms in order to:

a) deliver on their purpose and

b) provide for the health and well-being of all those working to achieve that purpose In the long run business success depends on human endeavour and human endeavour is best promoted by attending to human needs.

A Solution Focused Approach has much to offer towards creating this new order and with TeamTalk we have created a whole treasure chest of simple, effective and person-friendly tools.for the Organisation of the Future

For two days Chris and Susanne will open their treasure chest widely and share tips and tricks from jointly six decades of accumulated wisdom regarding solution-focused coaching, training, mentoring and consulting at all levels of organisations.

Join forces with us for an immersive two-day experience on the following challenge: How can we create better organisations by more “team-talk”?!?

On your registration you receive a copy of our booklet “Team Talk: Building Excellence with Solution Focused Skills” and join the group of participants to share your best hopes and questions with them.

Looking forward to creating better organisations with a better impact on our societies - together with you!

Organizer BRIEF

Organizer of Team Talk: Building Better Organisations

BRIEF was founded in 1989 and the following year held its inaugural conference at which Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg, the co-founders of solution focused brief therapy, presented their ideas for the first time in Britain. The demand for training and therapy has kept BRIEF busy and expanding ever since.

BRIEF is where Solution Focused Brief Therapy started in Britain. Evan George, Chris Iveson and Harvey Ratner were working in an NHS clinic when they heard about the Brief Family Therapy Centre in Milwaukee. The Milwaukee group were just beginning to publish their ideas and BRIEF arose from the successful attempt to develop these ideas within the British context. BRIEF is now Europe's largest provider of Solution Focused training with over 4000 professionals from the NHS, local authorities, education and private sector undertaking courses each year.

Since the early days of Solution Focused practice BRIEF has become aware of the wider potential of the approach, developing applications in the fields of coaching, leadership, conflict resolution and team building. These developments have taken BRIEF out of the fields of health, education and social care into the corporate sector where managers and leaders are becoming increasingly clear about its transformative potential.
