Transforming Solution-Focused Dialogues

Dialogic Orientation Quadrants at Work
23/24th September 2019
The word “progress” is at the heart of every Solution-Focused dialogue. The world has come a long way since the era of problem-focused therapy and problem-solving conversations, yet the old habit of digging the root cause of “regress” and “regrets” seems to occasionally interject even our ordinary encounters with friends and family.
In our way of working with people, we use Solution-Focused dialogue to support our conversation partners to curate their stories intentionally. We manage to keep our orientation to so-to-speak the root cause of “progress” and “hopes”, and somehow our clients, friend, family, and colleagues seem to notice the difference in the quality of their habitual narratives. Some tell us that they have clarity of what they want, a better sense of self, or even courage to keep on. How does this come about in our conversations?
