Description

Coaching CPD: Exploring and Developing Solutions-Focused Coaching Approach

We are pleased to be able to offer a day of coaching CPD; a unique opportunity to hone your coaching craft and also receive support on your continuing development as a coach.

For those unfamiliar with the approach, there’s a bit more to being solutions- focused than simply “solving problems”. After all, all coaches and consultants would claim to be doing that regardless of their approach.

Coaching using a Solution-Focused perspective offers a refreshing, if challenging, addition to your skills and approach as a coach. Firstly, it works with rather startling assertions:

  • A detailed understanding of the “problem” is often of little help in identifying progress or a solution.

  • Change is happening all the time. It is the coach’s job to amplify useful change

  • Small changes can have huge effects in a system, so it’s better to make small, realistic, humble, and therefore feasible steps.

  • We are the stories we tell about ourselves, change the story, change the person.

So, what impact could this have on your practice, if you were to act as if these assertions were true?

In ths workshop we will:

• Offer an understanding and initial practise in coaching using a Solutions - Focused approach

Specifically:

• Consider the development of the “Solutions-Focussed” approach to coaching

- Where did the approach originate and what makes it different?

- Solution-Focussed Coaching: Major ideas and tools

• The power of language and its application to finding solutions and progress

• Looking for strengths and resources in the “capable” client

• “Scaling” – how the use of 0 to 10 can be made a powerful tool

Releasing the power of the client’s imagination and capability.

• Finding exceptions – helping clients realise where they are already achieving success

• Small steps, and the “difference that makes the difference”

• A chance to consider how you might apply these ideas to your practice



The workshop will be facilitated by Jeff Matthews of The Madison Group. Based in the West Midlands, he has over 25 years experience as a coach and facilitator. Qualified as a supervisor, he is an APECS Accredited Executive Coach. His preferred style of working is one that builds on the strengths and resources that individuals bring. His own development has been strongly influenced by Solutions Focused methodologies, positive psychology as well as training as psychotherapist, using Transactional Analysis. His first degree was Management Science.

He has his own, successful executive coaching practise, working across all types of UK and European institutions. He has particular experience of the NHS in the West Midlands and South West England, where he is currently working with a Trust to develop their coaching capability, where his work has been particularly valued.
