future:live is a Danish conference with the purpose of spreading the knowledge of the Solution Focused Approach (SF) in organisations within areas such as organisational development, HR, management, coaching, and employee and team development.

“Solution Focused practice is transforming coaching, consulting, managing and leading in organisations all over the world.

The approach values simplicity in philosophy and language, and aims to discover “what works” in a given situation, simply and practically.

The focus is on what is wanted (not what is wrong), what is going well (rather than what has gone badly) and practical progress (rather than explanatory theory), and this focus leads to a positive and pragmatic way of working with organisations and individuals.

SF has its roots in a therapeutic approach devised by Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer at BFTC Milwaukee and others.”

The Solution Focused Approach is significantly more known in organisations outside of Denmark, which is something Solutionsurfers Denmark hopes to change by hosting this regional SOLWorld conference.

You cannot solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that led to the problem.

What is Solution Focus?

The Solution Focused approach is a specific way of working through distinguished use of interaction around preferred future, existing resources and signs of progress.

Preferred Future

A detailed description of a wished future destination. What will be different, what others will notice as different and how they will react differently as a result of that.

Existing Resources

Exploring what has happened in the recent past that contained small elements of the preferred future.

Signs of Progress

A detailed picture of signs – in form of specific actions – that will occur when beginning to move in the direction of the preferred future.
