2. Solution focused leadership and business development (Four day programme)


Most leadership models are disempowering of leaders and in turn, of followers! These models expect that you will be a hero, be perfect, and be able to change your attitudes and behaviours to suit the moment or simply transform people into super men or women with peak performance – overnight!  Most of us know that it just isn’t like that because we live leadership daily.

Change and innovation are central to organizational progress. Leadership is a key to achieving change and innovation. As leaders, we have two choices, we can analyse the problems or we could seek solutions.

Solution Focussed Leadership

Solution focused leadership is about seeking solutions that will last.

The Programme

The Programme is delivered over four days with a very practical, hands-on approach.


To explore solution focussed leadership to generate workable personal action plans to apply the learning to your own situation.


  • Identify and list the applications of the learning through ‘live’ issues relevant to yourself and your situation.
  • Demonstrate solution focussed leadership skills using a ‘solution focussed’ process framework.
  • Understand and explain your own behaviour and that of others differently and use this to develop more effective leadership strategies in your own context.
  • Develop a personal and relevant action plan to take the learning from this event forward into your own situation.


You are  asked to come with some examples of leadership challenges you have experienced to work on with other people.  Be prepared to discuss these using the solution focussed approach either in a large or small group of participants.
