You will find:
• A leadership case study, to illustrate the power the Solution Focused approach has to transform an organisation and inspire the people working in it
• New leadership perspectives, to provoke you to think about typical leadership challenges from a different angle
• Leadership steps, to help you enhance sometimes difficult interactions.
It is probable that most leaders will say they are solution focused. However, you can get to a
solution via different routes. If the problem or change you have is “tame”, and the problem definition
is clearly agreed, then traditional logical problem focused tools and methods work well. If
the problem or change is messy, involves lots of people with a vested interest in the outcomes,
the outcomes are uncertain and the causes may be interconnected, traditional problem focused
methods are, well… problematic.
As you will read in this book, Solution Focus will help you and your team tackle 'messy' problems in a way that leads to sustainable solutions and motivated people. It enhances day to day interaction and leads to healthy collaboration across the organisation.
The book has been written and edited by experienced contributors to Solution Focus in Organisations. SFiO is a global network of solution-focused practitioners who work in and with organisations.
