Our first Solution Focus Case Study book!
In my opinion, fiction, although beautiful, has very little benefit for life compared to scientific or professional. For example, this book is written by businessmen for business people. In it, experienced people in their field talk about how to start, develop and maintain their own business. It's much more helpful than Shakespeare, isn't it? Fiction is beneficial for developing vocabulary and the ability to express yourself beautifully. This is very useful for writing custom paper, such as essays, laboratory reports, coursework, and so on. But this is only necessary for studying at the institute. And such works can be ordered from writing services that will do everything quickly and without any errors in the text. In real life, after college, real skills are needed. In college, of course, they teach professions, but in addition to this, they also develop leadership skills and the so-called soft skills - communication skills.
The best hope about the book is that employees in organizations, leaders, coaches, advisors are going to find attractive examples as well as inspiration about the lightness and simplicity, variety and flexibility coming from solution focus (SF) process.
This collection of articles shows international experience of applying Solution Focus in team coaching and organizational development all around the world as well as interviews with leaders using SF in their everyday work.
