‘Problem talk creates problems, solutions talk creates solutions’

Steve De Shazer


If you focus on what’s wanted and elicit people’s strengths, you‘ll create outstanding results. Coaching with a Solutions Focus is a pragmatic, simple way to develop your skills as a manager, facilitator, trainer and leader.


Learn a set of new tools, techniques and tips that you can apply immediately to your current issues and practice. These methods are now making significant differences within organizations including Walkers/PepsiCo, Beiersdorf (Nivea), The Metropolitan Police, Historic England and DP World.


Join Janine Waldman and Paul Z Jackson, world leaders in the field of Solutions Focus and co-founders and directors of coaching and change consultancy The Solutions Focus for an inspiring, interactive two-day workshop during which you will:

  • Experience OSKAR, the solutions-focused coaching model
  • Meet the 6 Solutions Tools
  • Hear case studies of organisational transformation
  • Put your learning to practical use on individual coaching issues
  • Experience the power of solutions talk, counter-finding, scaling and other techniques

From this workshop delegates can expect to:

  • Discover how to apply solutions-focused coaching with colleagues, staff and clients to get better results
  • Have higher quality conversations, to get messages across far more effectively
  • Learn how to have coaching conversations that help people identify resources, make progress and raise their performance
  • Take away instantly-usable tools and techniques
  • Make more effective use of time with colleagues and team members


Our approach


Solutions Focus is a pragmatic and positive methodology which significantly improves communications for individuals, teams and organisations. Professional coaches, leaders, managers and consultants worldwide are using Solutions Focus as:

  • A direct route to desired results
  • A systematic approach to conversations that makes a big impact wherever there are complex issues with people involved
  • A way of creating respectful and lasting change
  • A method of identifying what works and doing more of it

Focusing on solutions and doing more of what works is not only enjoyable and empowering, it is often much faster and more effective than analysing problems and difficulties and their causes. It can produce more sustainable results and a lasting shift towards continuous development.


“Solutions-orientated thinking and actions are amongst the most powerful tools a modern executive can have. Weaving positive delivery into my business has enabled me to find ways forward with changes that seemed unattainable.” Andrew Fowlie, General Manager, NHS Grampion


Our methods


Our programmes are designed using the principles of accelerated learning and solutions focus, approaches that create faster and more effective targeted learning: learning that stays with participants long after the course has been completed.


The workshops will be engaging and experiential, with plenty of opportunity for skills practice. Topics will be chosen by participants, giving them the opportunity to practice their new skills on work-related situations.
