Solution Focus

The approach values practicality and working with people strengths.

The Solution Focus Approach is the basis of our coaching methodology. Solution Focus practice is transforming coaching, mentoring, consulting, managing & leading in organisations all over the world. The approach values practicality and working with people strengths. 


As a Solution Focused coach, you will know how to use a combination of tested tools together with a specifically structured conversation which helps the coach keep the relationship brief and yet effective. 

The approach follows four basic Principles which are of most importance and affect the way we manage the coaching relationship in total.

What is Wanted

If people were broken cars, investing time in diagnosing the causes of a problem would be very useful, but people within organisations are not cars and solutions are not linearly linked to causes. Discussing the origins of a problem can always be interesting but given the little available time in corporations, it is more useful to focus on what is the Desired Future. With Solution Focus coaching training you will have tools to support your coachee work constructively on the “What is Wanted”.

What is There

You will know how to empower your coachee illuminate all available resources to move forward. These resources may be internal like qualities, skills, past experience and/or external like mentors, friends, material resources. With people, it is more efficient, to build change on existing qualities, and the “What is There” rather than the "What is not", a gap!

What Worked

With the Solution Focus approach, you as a coach will know how to accompany your coachee in a constructive exploration of the past to  detect all the clues of “What Worked", learn from that, analyse positive deviances and use these as a resource for the future. You will also help your coachee gain awareness “What doesn’t work" and find out what to do different.

Small is Big

Small yet concrete next steps can create ripple effects and change, leading to progress towards the coachee’s Desired Future. You will know how to coach your coachee to “Change the Focus of Awareness”, from what's missing to creating noticeable progress. Change comes from small practical actions vs. grandiose action plans.
