sfminds stands for solution focused minds – and this name reflects the aim! As solution focused enthusiasts we met some years ago at a SOLworld conference (this year: http://sfworldconference.org). The SOLworld is the international meeting of worldwide working solution focused consultants. We agreed that our way of working does not only generate remarkable successes for our clients – we all have a lot of fun. The focusing on problems and analyses is taking up too much space in consulting services. We want to spread the solution focus and its inspiration for change and energy into a growing number of organisations.
We decided to make use of our experiences in different branches, since 1994 in health care and since 1999 in schools and to develop new services and formats. The start was made with projects in health care in the Netherlands and in school development in Germany. In 2012 we decided to found the company solution focused minds.

Christian questions things with his open mind and is always striving for new best ways. The fact that he can not get out of his way even in the greatest chaos in a classroom and stays unimpressed focused on the process ensures a good, concentrated atmosphere. He can also spark people – no one receives as many feedback forms secretly in each class as he does.
He studied social sciences, discovered his passion for politics as a freelance radio journalist, was an office manager at the state parliament and organized election campaigns. In addition, he is committed to good food and offers vegan cuisine at one or the other festival.
