Solution-Focused Coaching

Instead of focusing on the problem, solution-focused coaching asks: What do you want to see instead? The focus is on achieving the preferred future. Clients are invited to describe their goal and devise and implement solutions tol bring this objective closer.
The expertise of the solution focused coach lies in asking useful SF questions.

The concept and methodology, as well as the attitude of the SF coach, differs from problem-focused coaching.
In solution-focused coaching the atmosphere is positive and hopeful. Meetings become shorter, ensuring that SF coaching is cost-effective.
