The Solutions Focus Coaching Masterclass refines and extends your coaching repertoire by intentionally integrating pragmatic and proven Solution Focused methods into coaching and leadership conversations.

The Solutions Focus methodology can change the direction of your conversations, enabling you to foster a creative and enabling mindset in yourself and others where there is positive progress towards broader organisational goals.

This two-day advanced-skills course delves into Solutions Focus and the way in which it integrates with the GROWTH Framework and Key Coaching Skills’.

Solutions Focus is a powerful yet subtle approach to positive change. From its origins twenty years ago, it is now being used by major corporations, top business schools and many coaches and consultants as the methodology of choice where effective, respectful and lasting change is wanted.

The Solutions Focus approach will help you to work with change, emergence and the unexpected more confidently.
