Solutions Focus

 Solutions Focus is a scientifically proven leadership method that allows you to identify and take advantage of the existing – often unknown – potential within yourself, your team or organisation.

It provides methods for constructive conflict resolution, better performance, improved staff retention and promotes overall health and happiness within and between people. With this unique, interactive webinar you get insight into how it works.

Jan Marklund will teach you how to solve problems and conflicts without talking about them and how to improve yourself without analysing your weaknesses. (We promise it’s not as crazy as it sounds. In fact, it’s an extremely effective and common practice among successful world leaders).

You will learn

  • The difference between Solutions Focus and problem focus
  • The approach and methodology
  • The power of questions vs answers
  • The importance of constructive reflection
  • How to use the power of words and language for effective communication and shifting mindsets
  • How to deal with complainers, perform constructive conflict resolution and how to give solution-focused feedback (or feedforward).
  • How to use your strengths to your advantage


  • Opportunity to interact and practice what you learn
  • Practical tools you can apply to your own challenges
  • To hear practical examples and experiences from a highly experienced leadership development coach and expert, member of international Solutions Focus association.

Testimonials from managers that have attended Marklund’s seminars, workshops or programs:

“I have discovered leadership skills within myself I didn’t know I had.”

“I use my time more effectively and more targeted, i.e. I prioritise better, delegate better and get more time for strategic work.”
