Susanne Burgstaller und Chris Iveson, www.teamtalk.usolvit.com, Dezember 2019.
The new world of work requires new ways of working together. The secret sauce for this is Team Talk. The way teams talk to each other matters more now than ever. Team members need to be able to speak from the heart and build trusting relationships on a peer-to-peer level, while at the same time producing excellent outcomes. Both can be achieved by applying Solution Focused skills.Solution Focused skills have been perfected over decades by a global community of thousands of practitioners – therapists, managers, social workers, teachers, coaches, and many more. These skills are eminently transferable and will help you in any setting, from your work in the team to the C-suite to family life. The focus of this book is on their usefulness for teams in organisations, particularly self-organised or agile teams. Excellent teams are at the heart of excellent organizations. The authors have explored why some organisations deviate from the norm in a dramatically positive way. They have come up with the recognition – proven by science – that excellent organisations are places where individuals and teams can do what they are best at every day. Team members can experience psychological safety, autonomy, mastery and purpose, often even flow, in their work lives. Solution Focused skills help create these conditions. This booklet should give you a good grounding for Solution Focused mastery. It is highly practical and will help you understand and apply the most important Solution Focused skills straight away. The authors have given the skills names and faces to make them more visual and memorable.
