“Solution talk creates solutions” Steve de Shazer

DSC02655 This training provides a simple, but effective approach to switch the focus of a conversation from looking at problems to searching for solutions. This switch boosts positive energy and confidence, gets faster results and builds commitment for action.

In this 1 day training you will:

  • Explore how to guide a conversation with questions and appreciative remarks
  • Gain insights on how to focus attention to move forward in a conversation
  • Experience how to create enthusiasm and emotional involvement of collaborators and conversation partners
  • Learn a simple approach to produce faster results
  • Create ideas about how to use the learning in your own context.

The Solution Focused approach has proven to be very effective in unleashing the potential in people, creating a motivating working culture and driving initiatives and involvement. The secret of its success is the focus on what is already working and moving an individual and organization forward to a desired outcome.

Who should attend?

The training is suitable for

  • managers, team leaders and project managers to get more out of daily interactions and meetings
  • customer service specialists and sales people to better understand the customer and move to resolution
