solution-focused coaching course is that a live client gets interviewed by several participants. This live client does not play a role but comes with an actual problem or wish. As trainers we interview the live client afterwards and ask him or her two questions: 1) from your perspective, what would you say the coach did that worked? and 2) what suggestions do you have for the coach?
Yesterday, there was a live client who made an interesting remark about what one of the coaches had done that had worked: “The coach was very tenacious. When I had not answered the question completely he repeated his question; sometimes in the same words, sometimes in slightly different words.” When we asked this live client how this had helped she said: "Those questions are quite hard so it helps when they are asked several times. Only the third time these questions are asked you can really answer them.”
