Here is one example of a question which has this irresistible quality. Imagine an involuntary client who, at the beginning of the conversation with his solution-focused coach, says he is very angry about the fact that he has to talk to the coach. In fact, he is so angry that he even hesitates about whether he should sit down and start the conversation with the coach. He asks: "Why the hell can't they just leave me alone and do my job?” Then, the solution focused coach says the following: "I realize you are an independent minded person who does not want to be told what to do and I can imagine you want to be left alone to do you work. What do you say you and I sit down and try to figure out what would need to happen for them to leave you alone so that you won't need to come here any longer than necessary?" The client thought for a few seconds, his facial expression change, he said down, and said: "Alright. Sounds fair, let's talk."
