With our therapeutic inside-out perspective we clearly differ from other players in the market.
Coach vs. Filoskop
We are radically different coaches with the ready-made answers who see their clients’ personal stories as rather irrelevant and who give simplified advices based on a seemingly predetermined idea of how things really are, formulated as a “do like this instead”. Unlike these, we work therapeutically in-depth. To have an opportunity to help our clients, we want to be invited into the person’s life and from their first-person perspective get a sense of what this world looks like and colors life and from this frame of reference be able to help sort in the challenges and opportunities one faces.
Psychologist vs. Filoskop
Psychologists are often called in when a problem has already arisen, as support and help, which nowadays is often about creating a more functional object through behavior modification. Our job is not about something being corrected so that a person can return being functional, but through self-knowledge and the ability to self-responsibility oneself be able to manage life and resolve ones internal and external conflicts and deal with the challenges faced. In addition to this, we are even more often hired in terms of development, both personal and organizational, which further distinguishes us from the more classical psychologists.
Management consultancy vs. Filoskop
Management consultants projects and structures objective business strategies, we address subjective psychological strategies and thus clearly differ from them through our absolute focus on psychological change management. Filoskop makes a subjective psychological change, the management consultant makes an objective business change. Combined will be a real change.
Above comparison examples (also the management consultants, in their way) take an outside-in perspective which the client expresses with an “okey, is that so?” For example; “Okey, so the case is that the management team gets demotivated because they think I interfere too much, is that so? “
Filoskop have an inside-out perspective where the client’s response is “yes, that’s how it is!” For example; “We do not get out full potential of the management team as I constantly get into small details because I have a notion that I will become irrelevant if I do not have total control over exactly all the details. Yes, that’s how it is! “
