Solution Focused practice is being applied worldwide to coaching, management, team development, strategy, OD – building progress rapidly in tough situations.  In this active and participative workshop, Dr Mark McKergow will introduce SF work in his own inimitable style combining scientific rigour with performance pizzazz.   Mark will be looking at how to work with complex, messy, rapidly changing and confusing situations using SF ideas and tools.  He will show how SF is not only a crisp and focused way to work, but also an integrated and whole response to the challenges of a complex world.  Mark will introduce his classic ‘Six Solutions Tools’ conception of SF, as well as sharing stories, answering questions and getting everyone to a great place to enjoy and benefit from the rest of the conference.  No experience necessary for this workshop – come, learn, share, participate.
