Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

Online SF Business Professional course starts 23 October

Thirteen intrepid coaches, consultants and managers joined me on the first online SF Professional course this summer.  Running online in conjunction with the University of Milwaukee Wisconsin (with its historic links to Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg), the programme featured sixteen weeks of readings, discussions, exercises, coaching practice and a project – just like Mark’s world-famous face to face courses. 


The participants loved the mix of interaction, reflection, practice and theory, all facilitated by Mark himself.  The project ranged from team events to strategic planning, and restorative justice to re-thinking SF teaching.  Participant came from all five continents – some comments included:


“My confidence in using SF in organization setting has moved up significantly. I feel that I have all the skills and tools to handle assignments in demanding situations such as team coaching and organizational consulting.” 


“The impact with clients who I have in the past experienced some sense of "stuckness" has been amazing.  I have seen a rise in energy and commitment by the client to take action.”


“I was surprised on at least 20 different occassions, I discovered new materials and writings that I wouldn't otherwise have done, discovered 6 new training exercises, I developed some of my own too.”


“I have better knowledge and understanding of SF, both theoretical and practical, feel more confident in using the SF approach. Work seems less “heavy” when using SF, spending less time talking about problems”


The next course starts on 23 October 2011, and there are still places available.  Full details are available at  Save $300 by registering before 1 October 2011!

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…
