About Solution Focus

Solution Focused practice is transforming coaching, consulting, managing and leading in organisations all over the world. The approach values simplicity in philosophy and language and aims to discover "what works" in a given situation, simply and practically. The focus on what's wanted (not what's wrong), what's going well (rather than what's gone badly) and practical progress (rather than explanatory theory) leads to a positive and pragmatic way to work with organisations and individuals. SF has its roots in the therapeutic approach devised by Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer at BFTC Milwaukee and others.

This group was formed in 2002 and has held international conferences every year since, attracting participants from over 20 countries. We have also held three summer universities and events in Japan (J-SOL) and North America. Read about the SOLWorld charter, past SOLWorld events, the Steering Group and the innovative and effective way that SOLWorld operates. To find out more about the Solution Focused approach, Jumpstart into SF. To start finding your way around, read about making the most of SOLWorld.

We have friendly relations with the many SF organisations around the world, particularly with SFIO (SF In Organisations). Many people are involved in both groups.
