˜Your SFBT tip for October 2014:
 
"What you focus on is what you amplify!" If you have attended one of our workshops, you heard this message a great deal. It is worth repeating! Remember, that although we honour our clients and team members to listen to their stories and the problems that they will undoubtedly present, we look for the times when the problem is not present and "tap them on the shoulder" to show them alternatives away from their problem talk, toward solution-talk. Amplify the solutions toward positive change. This is meaningful for clients and team members alike. If we drill into problems, we guarantee you will find more problems. As we drill down into solutions, think of the possibilities we can find!

We have several one and two-day workshops available. Along with consulting plans that are tailored to your business needs.

Workshops update:
 
Do you have an upcoming team retreat? Looking for keynote speakers?
GIVE US A CALL!
 
Remember, solution-focused techniques are not only for working with your clients. These skills are effective within teams and work groups to enhance morale and build team spirit! If you are looking for an excellent addition to your next work retreat, give us a call!
 
Many agencies require their staff to attend these workshops as part of their employment training.
 
Practice, practice, practice...
 
We learned a while ago that while the Solution-Focused approach appears simple on the outside, developing your own style with these techniques is not as easy as it first seems! We have been studying and practising this approach for many years, and we continue to learn something new to enhance our practice. Therefore, we are offering opportunities for past participants to contact us with their questions and "brainstorm" how to continue to practice your work with a Solution-Focused stance.

Call us today at 403-287-8707 or email us at info@solutiontalk.ca to learn more.
