“What would you like to talk about?” This question will usually encourage people to talk about a problem. The client might reply “I would just like to talk about my job.” This is not sufficient for a solution-focused practitioner as it describes a process rather than an outcome. The SF coach will need to ask follow up questions. We as solution-focused practitioners should keep in mind, that the client is the central focus of our work. Therefore we should seek paths that are most beneficial to the client. These are rarely the paths that take unnecessary detours. Instead we should focus on the outcome.
