As I coach leaders and help them learn to coach others, I encourage the use of solution-focused concepts and tools.

I believe that our thoughts are a powerful driver of our emotions and if we adopt a solution-focused mindset, it leads to more appreciative and pleasant emotions, as well as quicker and more sustainable solutions.

For managers and leaders who spend much of their day fighting fires and solving problems which often leads to stress and burnout, coaching them to adopt a solution-focused approach enables them to maintain a sense of resilience and resonance relationships with themselves and those they lead.

Toward that end, I encourage my clients and students to practice mindfulness and stillness on a regular basis throughout each day to help maintain perspective, openness, and compassion toward self and others.

I am interested in your thoughts about this group and the topics you would like to explore.





Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
