If you're looking for the free NLP in residential youth work course, it will be back after the Christmas break, but in the meantime, I want to talk about a concept called the 'Curious Inquisitor.' In this session, we will discuss a concept from the Solutions Toolkit training course called the 'Curious Inquisitor.' I place this concept at the center…

"If you agree to become guest on my podcast then I can't promise you'll sell a million books." The fact that I wrote these words in my email to Pam and she still agreed to talk to me only increased my admiration for her work. In fact if you are one of those closet woo woo people who believe in the law of manifestation then who better to come out to…

We are all familiar with the Big Issue vendors on the streets of our cities. I was privileged to talk to a few of them in Manchester UK. The Big Issue magazine is now worldwide and provides a legal income for the homeless as well as support to get them back off the streets. In talking to these guys and doing the recordings there was a common thread…

One of our favourite NLP mantras which in most cases is true. "The problem you have now was once the solution to another problem." A sure fire bit of wisdom and it was interesting to hear Rich Rolls mention this concept when he was being interviewed about his battle with alcohol. I wanted to share my thoughts and encourage you to hear the interview…

Since I began people geeking I've been reading books, watching YouTube and listening to podcasts by the guru's, the masters of change. I recently became fascinated by that subliminal backlog of life advice that in most cases I'd never followed. That was when I realised that there was a bloody lot of it. Start your day with this and never do that, a…

Ray Edwards is getting himself ready to climb Kilimanjaro. At 19500 ft it's a challenge for any climber but Ray is a quadruple amputee. When we spoke he was able to describe the circumstances that brought him here and his dream of setting up a charity that could faithfully support other amputees. That charity is Limbcare and was partially formed by…

Welcome to the Action Factory Podcast - We are expats living here in France and one thing we notice that's honoured here in Europe is Armistice day. Nothing moves on the day and in our rural area most shops and businesses close to show respect in the village square. It marks the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I came …

Doing the podcast here has taken me back a few years to the thing I loved most during ten years on FM radio. Talking to the most interesting and fascinating people I could find. For that reason and because thousands of you now listen to us I have changed the name of the podcast to the Action Factory Podcast. This will enable me to open up our remit…

Welcome to the solutions toolkit podcast from the Action Factory. I'm Michael Dawson Yes, I've neglected you but saying I've been busy probably won't cut it. For the 9th time I took it upon myself to cycle the Tour De France from start to finish. (direct) before you get too impressed. A mere thousand or so Km and that's a podcast right there. I als…

I believe that solution focused workers don't need to be therapists and they don't need problems to solve. Having had comments both in person and online about my attitude towards traditional therapists and their methods I thought it worth some clarity. I often quote in sessions my Aunt Betty, of course Aunt Betty doesn’t exist in reality as a perso…

I suffer from solution focused bias, I see it everywhere. Yesterday I was reading a very old book called the power of the subconscious mind by Dr John Murphy. It was first published in 1963. Although John Murphy doesn't refer to the miracle question, mainly because it wasn't invented in 1963 I recognised that there might be some lessons for us with…

There are a number of principles behind the solution focused approach that are unchanging under any circumstance. Like Issac Newtons laws of motion they apply in every situation. Whether you're a professor of solution focused therapy or simply my aunt betty, if your solution focused then these laws apply. If you can apply these in your work then yo…

The three overlapping circles that define a solution focused worker. In other sessions we have spoken about how much power and influence a solution focused worker might have over a therapist. A solution focused worker is not a therapist, they are youth work professionals, residential workers or teachers. So what makes a solution focused worker. We …

Solution focused working, I just don't get it mate! From experience this is a fairly common reaction form other services or those outside the 'cult' They see the results and are often stunned by them but should we really care whether they get it or not? In this podcast I talk about my own experience and suggest we shouldn't really care. Having said…

The S.I.M.PL.E acronym is something we use in our training to give workers something to grasp onto when the conversations stall. It's never a first resort but can act as a good last resort and get you to the shore, get the wheels spinning again. S - Scaling Questions I - Interpretation M - Miracle Question Again PL - Place both emotionally and phys…

It's your fault, not the clients! This week I'm talking about those times when your work seems to be heading off course or stalling. Before you hit the rocks you need to head for some lifeboats and save yourself. This time I want to point the finger at you or (me), after all, it has to be the first place we look. We already know the client has the …

Questions, questions, questions in SFBT. I passionately believe that our role when using the solution focused approach is to be the curious inquisitor. To resist offering solutions at all costs and to use our curiosity to probe the problem from new angles. Out of that curiosity will come the clients own solution. If this is true then everything we …

Welcome to the solution focused toolkit podcast. Moving on from the last episode I wanted to expand a little bit more on what we do after delivering our own 'working' version of the miracle questions and where those answers might take us. Solution focused therapy will not copy and paste into a work environment and therefore everything we do in our …

The Miracle Question and you. The whole reason for us developing the solution focused toolkit training was because we know the solution focused model will not copy and paste into your work environment. That's why when you join us for training we will say that we don't want to make you a therapist, we want to not, not make you a therapist. In short …

Since we launched the podcast there have been a few comments and questions from various channels. In this episode I thought I'd pause to answer a few of them. Please keep your comments and questions coming in although in future I'll probably answer one a week. Thanks so much for being there and you are greatly appreciated. Remember if your within o…

Do you trust the cops? Whether you do or don't, you might be making assumptions about them that can cloud your judgement and the way you engage with them. So what about your client's, when dealing with your clients what kind of assumptions do you make about them? It works in the same way. As a solution focused professional working in numerous roles…

There are four big reasons why therapy works and most of them don't involve the therapist. It's an uncomfortable truth that the main components in a positive outcome are held by the client themselves. In this episode I talk about what this means for the solution focused approach and how it empowers the professional to work with client problems. Onc…

It's so easy to get lost in the depths of academia when dealing with people and problems. However I challenge the idea that the certificates and diplomas are actually necessary? After all, the people who really came up with the solution focused approach had no idea they were doing it, they just were. These people have not gone away, they are possib…

In this very quick episode I wanted to talk about the solution focused attitude within your service. Not the wonderful talk strategies we employ but the fabric of the service itself. The feel of the whole, the physical signals that are endemic within the service. Things so easy to forget when we are caught up in fighting fires and tight budgets. I'…

Like many of the tools we introduce 'stories' are not strictly endorsed within the solution focused arena. However our work isn't for the therapy room, it's for the workplace. I know from experience in business and in all my roles in social care, mental health and education that stories hold immense power. In this episode I tell my own story and la…

Solution focused therapy has it's drawbacks or so they say. In this episode I work through some common but puzzling objections to the solution focused model. I argue that many of these objections are only valid when operating outside the framework of solution focused work. My opinion is by no means the end of the argument because there's no right o…

We specialise in adapting the solution focused model into the workplace. Before considering this incredibly powerful approach with your team then there are some things to consider. After all you are not therapists and you don't want to be. That's why so often traditional solution focused training doesn't translate. In this episode I talk about the …

A rough guide to solution focused therapy and its origins. In this episode we also talk about how we adapt the incredible power of solution focused working into your everyday work. We strip it down and build it back up for you in our online training course, the solution focused toolkit. If the training room is my school then this podcast is my play…
