Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

During the Follow-Up day after a two day training in SF Coaching for a group of Career Counselors, we let the participants develop their own Micro Tools. They gave us the permission to post them on this ning-group. One of them is already joined this ning.

All suggestions for improvement are welcome.

1. Intake Career Counseling (cc)

P: What brings you to CC?
L: What would be different for you if this CC trajectory proved to be very useful for you? What else?
U: What did you do in the past that helped you to develop your career? What else was useful?
S: What is the first thing we can do together today that will be useful for you?

2. "I want to know what I want"

P: So you want to find out what you want.
L: Imagine you knew, what would be different?
U: What helped you to find out what you want in the past / other contexts?
U: Who was helpful? How was that person helpful for you to find out what you wanted?
U: What else was helpful?
S: What is the first thing we can do here together, that will help you to make a first step towards finding out what you want?
S: What is the first step you can take, that will help you to discover what you want?

3. My dream job

P: I want a new job! ... but I'm not really sure which one
L: Suppose you found your dream job, how will you notice that this job suits you well?
U: Which elements regarding a job are important to you?
U: Suppose that a miracle happened and you managed to find a dream job. How would that dream job look like? What else?
U: What do you like / did you like to do? What else?
S: What could be the first step you could take to help you find out what your dream job looks like?
S: What would you like to change in your current job, to make it look more like your dream job?

Thanks Anton,
This is really marvelous.
This is great Anton, I too have used PLUS and USE (as evaluation tool) for preparation at meetings and must work out how to post on here.

Hi Loraine, thanks, I'm looking forward to read more about your tools. You can post them by clicking on "Start a discussion".
Thanks Anton, I had a go, I still haven't yet got my head about how best to use this ning tool. This doesn't really feel like a discussion more information sharing!
Perplexed of Marlow UK!!





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…
