Solution Focused Team Coaching
In the workshop you earn 3 ACSTH point which will be documented for you.
In this workshop we will understand Team Coaching as conversations amongst several people about what they want – in which the job of the coach is to organize preferred interactions between them.
The so-called ‘Solution Focused’ methodology allows us to keep it simple: to concentrate on what people want, on what they can imagine as useful and achievable, and to utilize whatever the team brings into the process.
In this workshop, you will:
- experiment with simple formats for organizing useful conversations focused on preferred futures of a team
- reflect on 3 team situations where elements and assumptions of coaching were of major help
- envision your own next team situations, where you want to act in ways that are inspired by the results of your attendance in this workshop
The workshop is based on 30+ years of:
- taking people seriously and frankly (de Shazer, Berg, Szabó, Iveson et al.);
- 15+ years of experimenting with useful interactions in contexts of change in organizations (McKergow, Jackson, Clarke, Röhrig, Polgár & Hankovszky);
- 10+ years of using the label ‘team coaching’ (Meier, Dierolf);
– and finally on doing it and teaching it.
