Naomi Whitehead on Solution Focus as a celebration of who people are. In today’s episode, we talk with Naomi Whitehead, IASTI accredited Solution-Focused Practitioner, Coach, Therapist & Trainer as well as EBTA Board Member, about bringing Solution Focus to Communities. Learn what fascinates her with Solution Focus, how John Wheeler, Mathias Schwab, and Tara Gretton influenced her work, and how she sees Solution Focus as a celebration of who people are. Find out more about Curve Chats and how she brings Solution Focus to communities, e.g. to a barber shop in Sheffield. Check out how she supports equality in her work and fundamentally trusts her clients. Naomi tells us about her events that she is organizing in Sheffield and her workshop that she will do with Tara Gretton in Switzerland (stay tuned!). She elaborates how the lived experience of people can inform the service design, e.g. in her work with Ben’s Center and their vulnerable people project as well as her work with soul food. Listen to what kept her passionate about Solution Focus in the last 17 years and how that connects to her lived experience in Bolivia and her use of Solution Focus in her volunteer work in a prison in Bolivia. And do the Challenge of the Week: When at some point over the next week a person annoys you, acknowledge that and think about all the qualities that the other person has shown when doing this act and what else you appreciate about that person.
