The solution-focused approach was developed in psychotherapy in the 1980's at the Brief Familty Therapy Center in Milwaukee (US). In the 1990's, the solution-focused approach spread became a well known approach in therapy in many countries throughout the world. During the last decade the solution-focused approach became a familiar approach outside therapy too, first in the field of coaching, later also in education, team facilitation, management and organizational change.
I'd like to write an article about the solution-focused approach for the target groups of organizational consultants (or management consultants). For that purpose I'd love to hear some experiences from organizational consultants who use the solution-focused approach. So, if you are a consultant and you use the solution-focused approach please share some of your experiences here. I'd be particularly interested in the following things:
- What type of consultancy do you practise?
- When did you learn about the solution-focused approach?
- How do you use it in your work?
- How does it help you?
