Solutions focused coaching
Solutions focused coaching is a systematic approach to creating change for people. A fundamental assumption of the solutions focused coaching is that you don't need to understand the problem to solve it. This is an important assumption that can lead to positive change for people, rather than spending time digging to root causes we can move toward the solutions we want to have. For the cynefin freaks this places the approach deep inside a complex or chaotic domain where cause and effect are not necessarily related. I'll cover the basics of the approach, some of the research supporting validity of the approach and if I get my timing correct people can have a go at it.
