About the session

Solution Focus Coaching is a simple, effective approach to individual, group and team coaching. Despite its name it has little to do with jumping to solutions and solutionising. More of a way of thinking than a coaching process, the emphasis of Solution Focus is deciding what to go towards and the discovery of new, sometimes unexpected, ways to get there.

The approach is distinguished from other methods by it’s experimental, forward looking nature, a recognition that every individual, team and organisation is different and resourceful enough to find better ways to do and think. It works as well for getting unstuck in spontaneous coaching moments as it does meticulously planned workshops.

In this session we’ll take a look at the tenets of Solution Focus, hear how it works in harmony with agile approaches and get some practical try-it-tomorrow fieldwork. Theory will be mixed with hard earned practical experience working in agile and transformation teams across organisational levels and domains.

Participant takeaways:
This is an introduction to Solution Focus and not a complete guide. The aim is to provide an overview so the audience can safely try a few things and decide if they want to learn more. Some might even start thinking about problems differently. I’ll also relate solution focus to other areas, so there will be useful agile, coaching and behavioural elements.

Themes: Coaching, Psychology, Leadership, Teams
