L'esprit, la métaphore et la santé
By Penny Tompkins & James Lawley | Published 28 01 2015

Cet article explique pourquoi la métaphore est une façon naturelle de décrire la maladie et la santé, l’importance de reconnaître les métaphores des patients/clients, et comment le fait de travailler à l’intérieur de ces métaphores peut activer le processus de guérison personnel d’un individu. Traduction de Caroline Carrat

Polishing the Mirror of Reflective Practice
Reflective Practice clearly involves 'reflection' and its application to 'practice'. However other elements are sometimes undervalued. How do you know your reflection is having a beneficial effect on your practice? How can you improve the way you enact your reflective practice? To find out we need to apply reflective practice to itself.

Coaching z Metafora
By Penny Tompkins & James Lawley | Published 07 11 2013

- Czy wiesz o tym, że klienci używają metafor kilkakrotnie w ciągu minuty?

- I, że rozumują i postępują zgodnie z logiką używanych metafor?
- I to, że struktura metafory doskonale nadaje się do rozwiązywania skomplikowanych problemów i realizacji ambitnych celów?
- I, że jeśli stosujesz narzędzia „Clean” w coachingu, nie tylko chronią cię od narzucania własnych metafor, ale prowadzą również do zmian  w swiatopogladzie klienta?
- I kiedy to następuje, zmienia się  pojmowanie problemu, wzrasta umiejętność decydowania i podejmowania działań.

A jeśli to wiesz, to ten artykuł bardzo cie  zainteresuje.
Deconstructing Feedback
This paper investigates both the complexity of the feedback-giving process and the range of information that can be included in feedback. We present a 6-type of feedback model aimed at increasing the quality of feedback given and to raise the appropriateness and usefulness of the feedback process.
Applying Cross-Domain Thinking
Domain dependence and it’s inverse, cross-domain thinking, occur in many different guises. We are interested in modelling: the phenomena in general; how individuals do them; and how to increase our capacity to move from one to the other. We have collected a number of ideas from a range of contexts which we think have relevance to the topic. We’ll leave you to find your own links between them.
