What is Solution Focused Coaching?

Solution Focused coaching is based on a set of fundamental principles and assumptions about the capability of people and their potential. Solution Focused is future-oriented, as the coach is curious about what the coachee wants better, different or improved as a result of the coaching. SF coaches take time to explore words and meanings, as the conversation develops around a clear description of the desired outcome.

Solution Focused coaching uses a variety of tools, in the form of powerful questions, to develop the conversation in the desired direction. Solution Focused coaches respect and value past experiences of the coachee as important resources. Rather than exploring the dreaded past as blocks or hinderances, the past becomes a vital resource for learning and developing resilience, for present and future success.

Solution Focused coaches remain in a ‘not-knowing’ stance and bring curiosity to the coaching space. Having clarity around what is desired, versus not wanted, makes it easier to work toward something, instead of away from something.  There is keen interest on partnering and building collaboration, so that the journey and destination taken together are based on what is important to the client.  There is a strong emphasis on coaching the ‘who’ of the client, rather than just focusing on ‘what’ they want to do.

Solution Focused questions tend to open possibilities and evoke creative thinking. The coachee, with a heightened sense of self-efficacy and capability, is able to make small steps forward with a sense of hope.

How can a positive culture develop with Solution Focused Coaching?

Solution Focused Coaching focuses on what can be changed and how – instead of the ‘blame frame’. With coaches trained in Solution Focused, the feedback, leadership and meeting culture will change toward the positive.Some organisations have reported a three times improvement in meeting efficiency and performance conversations that people actually look forward to.In these times of rapid change, coaches want to insure a high level of performance and excellent results.The personal skills clients can develop through coaching as amongst the most sought after qualities in the modern business world.
