The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

High Impact Performance Dialogues

At BRIEF we teach what we do and what we do is brief. A coach can quickly become part of the furniture, comfortable, looking good but losing a sense of purpose. Brief coaching provides a well judged nudge that can turn a bad time into a good time and an okay time into something very special. If you’re feeling stuck, lost some clarity, need to find a more productive way to relate to a colleague, want to overcome a recurring difficulty or simply give your performance a boost, then 60 minutes at BRIEF will more than likely do the job. We are just round the corner from Barbican Underground. Ring us on 020 7600 3366 or email us. Book a session or find out more.

The BRIEF team has experience of delivering contracts of on-going chief executive coaching, single sessions of specific issue high-impact coaching, and performance coaching negotiated over a period of time.

The solution focused model, within which the BRIEF team are recognised leaders, fits coaching perfectly. Future focused, cooperating with each coachee’s own best ways of doing things, highly progress sensitive and resource-oriented, the approach will make the very best use of each session. Happy to work from session to session, BRIEF will give the coachee the power to decide whether to continue and exactly when enough has been achieved.

BRIEF coaches will not attempt to tell you what to do, to solve your problems or difficulties – they will restrict themselves to asking questions in such a way that you will have the best chance of resolving your own issue. Just doing this, getting out of the coachee’s way, has two important effects. The first is to reduce the number of necessary contacts to the minimum and the second is to increase the likelihood that the changes made will be maintained.

BRIEF’S standard charge for each one-hour session of coaching delivered at Newbury Street is £100.00 + VAT.

How can we think about the client’s ‘best hopes’?

There are things that continue to puzzle me about the Solution Focused approach – not just interest me but really puzzle me. And the main one that I find myself thinking about over and over is to do with the client’s response to the ‘best hopes’ question. How should we think about the client’s response, what name should we give it, and how should the client’s answer be connected to the rest of the work? Evan George shares some very provisional thoughts.
