“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” –Socrates.
Focusing on the problems makes you unravel how you got, where you got.
But is it the answer?
Will you be able to transform your situation by understanding your past?
In the early 1980s, a research group including Insoo Kim Berg and Steve
Shazer in Milwaukee developed Brief Therapy. The group was inspired to find something efficient and practical to help customers start doing everything they are searching for successfully. Instead of finding “what caused the problem,” they started experimenting with “what might work”.
Findings of this therapy were transferred into coaching and is a powerful technique, known as solution-focused coaching.
The root of solution-focused coaching is, ‘solution is independent of the problem’. Problems will pull you down and dull your energy while the solution will help you reach your goals.
