Advanced Coaching: Solutions Focus Masterclass
9am - 4pm | 20 May - 21 May 2019

In partnership with Growth Coaching International, we are delighted to offer a two day Advanced Coaching: Solutions Focus Masterclass.

The Solutions Focus Master Class refines coaching skills by integrating pragmatic and proven Solutions Focused methods - more intentionally – into coaching and all your conversations. The Solutions Focused methodology will change the direction of your conversations, enabling you to move easily to a creative and enabling mindset in which there is positive progress towards broader organisational goals. This two-day advanced-skills workshop delves into Solutions Focus and the way in which it integrates with the GROWTH model and core coaching skills.

Solutions Focus is a powerful yet subtle approach to positive change. From origins twenty years ago, it is now being used by major corporations, top business schools and many coaches and consultants as the methodology of choice where effective, respectful and lasting change is wanted. The Solutions Focus approach will help you to work with change, emergence and the unexpected more confidently. The philosophy is practical and can be used in any form of interaction whether with teams, members of staff, or even in your personal conversations. You will build a greater awareness of the impact of words and language - and use them even more skilfully.

Who is this program suitable for?

  • Geelong College staff who have completed the GCI program Introduction to Leadership Coaching.
