The powerful and pragmatic Solution-Focused (SF) approach, originally developed for therapy, is now being used by organizations around the world. SF is a radically simple, effective and proven approach to change. SF is all about building on what's working, not fixing what isn't. It can help build progress in the toughest situation, even where other problem-solving methods fail to give traction.
In this 16 week online course, you'll work directly with Solution Focus pioneer Mark McKergow. Through his expert instruction, you'll gain full understanding of the SF approach, necessary tools for adopting SF practices and real-life applications for your new skills.
