I find myself reflecting on the experiences I have shared over the years since being exposed to the SALT approach. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened had I not been exposed to the approach. I remember Usa and Gaston who introduced us to the approach, they were fantastic. The workshop was different, not the regular workshop that I was accustomed to, there was something exciting in the air. I was made to reflect on who I was as a human. It was a weird question "why are you human?" over the years I have come to reflect on this question time and time again as it helped me to shape the decisions I make in life. Today, I must admit that eventhough I have not been actively promoting the approach it has become a part of who I am as a person. The approach is one that promotes the participation and inclusion of all in the decision making process. This has had an important impact on my way of working as my way of thinking is one which seeks to identify strengths rather than weaknesses.

an free translation in French of Michael's inspiring and wonderful words :


Je réfléchis aux expériences que j’ai faites au fil des années depuis que j’ai été introduit à l’approche SALT.

Parfois je me demande ce qui ce serait passé si je n’y avais pas été exposé. Je me rappelle d’Usa et Gaston qui nous ont introduit à l’approche, ils étaient fantastiques.

L’atelier était différent, pas le type d’atelier auquel j’étais habitué, il y avait comme quelque chose de spécial dans l’air. J’ai été invité à réfléchir sur qui j’étais comme humain. C’était une question bizarre : “qu’est-ce qui fait de vous un humain?”. Au fil des ans j’ai réfléchi sur cette question et cela m’a aidé à prendre les décisions faites dans ma vie. Aujourd’hui, je dois bien avouer que, bien que je n’en ai pas fait la promotion consciemment, l’approche est devenue une partie de qui je suis comme personne.

L’approche préconise la participation et inclusion de tous dans le processus de décision. Ceci a eu un impact important sur ma façon de travailler et ma manière de penser est celle de quelqu’un qui cherche à identifier les forces des autres plutôt que leurs faiblesses.
