About the session

Solution Focus Coaching is a simple, effective approach to facilitating individual, group and team coaching. Despite its name it has little to do with jumping to solutions and solutionising. Grounded in positive psychology, 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.

  • Know when to use a solution focus approach, and how it fits with other agile and coaching approaches.
  • Understand the principles of solution focus, including how it helps find ways to move things forward quicker.
