– what’s going well.
The coaching conversation gives solution with hope, creative ideas, feeling of competence, clearer view on possibilities. The main tool for coaching is a question that is asked in such a way to move attention to solution. The core assumption is that a person who is an expert in his life and work. This approach mainly is based on language and focusing on future.
