Types of Companies and Industries We’ve Worked With:
In the area of Executive Coaching, many SF practitioners utilize the OSKAR model.
utcome – what outcome is wanted for the client, for the topic, and for the session?
cale – on a scale from 1 to 10, where 10 is the desired outcome, where are you now?
now-how – what is getting you that high on the 0 to 10 scale already? What other relevant know-how can be found in your organization?
ffirm & action – what are you doing right? What are some small next steps?
eview – what is better since the last coaching session? How did you do that?
In the area of Business Consulting, there are two guiding models of the SF method:
The first, from Jackson and McKergow in a 2002 paper, is known as the six SIMPLE principles.
olutions – not problems
n between – not individual effort
ake use of what is there – not what isn’t
latform – what is the issue?
anguage – simply said
very case is different – beware ill-fitting theory
These same ideas are expressed in another SF model from Hjerth (in Klingenstierna, 2001). This is known as the PLUS model.
ossibilities – from the past, present and future
ook from the preferred future – what is wanted
utilize successes and resources – use what is already working
tepping the scales – what are next steps forward
