The underlying philosophy of my work with clients is both a systemic, solution-oriented approach and the science of positive psychology.
Positive psychology, which is not to be mixed up with positive thinking, is an approach in psychology and the scientific study about what goes right in life. It uses empirical methods to systematically build competence, boost your resilience, and promote excellence. This philosophy is rooted in the identification and cultivation of your core strengths in concert with your values. It provides the basis to make long-lasting positive changes in your life. And it complements other strategies for change, as you might need considerable courage to challenge your status quo.
The systemic-constructivist approach is much more pragmatic then it might sound to you at first. We live in a world of complexity and uncertainty. The only means available to cope with it is some sort of constructivist selection process. There is no objective reality or truth but rather your social-emotional “construction of reality.” You might have experienced often that one story produces at least as many versions as people involved.
Everybody has his own perception and therefore understanding of the world. This personal view of the world has an impact on your actions – in your personal life and in the organization you work. In an organization, many different views come together which can be quite challenging. A systemic view helps to understand the organization, the dynamics, the opportunities and the risks.
