One small step forward

Solution-focused Perhaps you're unfamiliar with the solution-focused approach. So, maybe it´s helpful if I'll use some of these first posts to mention and examine some of its basic assumptions and techniques. An important thing about the approach is that it focuses on taking one small step forward instead of taking big jumps, even when problems are great. This brief article explains why. This small step approach can often lead to surprising results. So, it seems wise to use the small step approach as a default. However, maybe there are cases, circumstances in which a big step/planned change approach would work better. I am not sure WHEN this would be the case, though. So, my question to go along with this topic is: when IS a big step approach the best way forward?
