Solution Focused Greatness

Solution Focused Greatness

How to amplify collaboration, resilience, and positivity in others

Sick of people fixating on problems, focusing on issues beyond their control, pointing fingers, and casting blame? Do you feel like you’re constantly firefighting a revolving door that churns negativity?

Isn’t it more productive to identify solutions and, in turn, fuel connection, awaken creativity, and elevate appreciation? And what if you weren’t the only one doing it?

Here’s the secret … everyone has greatness. They just don’t all believe it.

People want to do well and have a desire to contribute. What if we see their greatness even when they’re not operating at their very best? How might you lead differently? How might you show up with greater curiosity? How might you do less telling and do more asking to co-create possibilities?

When you embrace the belief that people are already greatnessTM, it acts as a wedge in that negativity revolving door. You don’t lose hope, your best people, and your most innovative ideas.

This session will empower you to leverage the 5 most resourceful questions (that you’re not currently asking) to access the solution to any problem.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Practice the 5 most effective, solution-focused coaching questions that address negativity, gossip, and a problem-fixated mindset
  • Understand how to foster an environment that’s rich with curiosity and continuous improvement
  • Increase your team’s hopefulness, resiliency, and well-being through easy to implement tactics
  • Notice the signs that you’re firefighting, micro-managing, and behaving unresourcefully
  • Create collaborative and innovative solutions – even when no easy answers seem to exist

"Our managers received huge value from Sarah’s presentation. For example, ‘Loved her energy and the subject matter was very interesting. Her presentation caused me to rethink some past actions. If I had had her 5 question tools at the start of my management career, I think things would have turned out better.’ She will be back!"
