Online Seminar (Zoom platform)

Positively Speaking

"Problem talk creates problems, solutions talk creates solutions."

- Steve de Shazer

Solutions Focus is a pragmatic, positive and highly effective methodology which significantly improves communications for individuals, teams and organisations. Coaches, therapists, leaders, managers and other professionals worldwide are using Solutions Focus as:

  • A direct route to the results they want
  • 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.

During this engaging, practical 2-day workshop with trainer, facilitator and author Paul Z Jackson, you will:
  • Experience an approach that provides you with tools and techniques to have more effective structured conversations
  • Hear how this well-proven and researched approach to change is applied by professions and organisations worldwide
  • Learn how you can save time by identifying where to put your attention and what to overlook
  • Practice tools and techniques to have more energising and effective conversations
  • Experience solutions-focused tools, offering a direct route to more constructive conversations with clients, colleagues, friends and family
By attending this workshop you will learn how to apply these conversational tools to:
  • Uncover peoples’ resources and put them to work
  • Empower people to take responsibility for their own progress
  • Motivate them to take action in the right direction
  • Support others to gain clarity about their future and take steps to
  • make progress
  • Share know-how in a way that gets the message across
  • Save time and energy as you work towards desired outcomes
