Paul Koeck, MD studied medicine, philosophy, and sports medicine at KUL. After his Management studies at the VLERICK School for Management, he followed different studies in system coaching, short solution focused therapy, and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy in Europe and the United States.
He first established himself as a physician in Antwerp and soon his attention went from therapy to company coaching. He was intrigued by the question how people and systems can break out of vicious cycles of negative stress and inefficiency. Soon the realization grew that efficient therapeutic strategies could also have their use in company situations, not only for solving problems but also for developing leadership competence. Supported by the founders of the System therapy in the USA and by the positive feedback on his own lectures on international scientific congresses, he developed his own moden ‘Solution Focused Management™’. Soon, SFM evolved to a general model for change management, which by now is being taught at several universities.
