Erickson Coaching International's methodology is solution-focused . The solution-focused coaching methodology is based on proven tools, techniques, and processes that help provide clients with the means to create truly transformational changes in their own lives. During coaching sessions, the coach and client embark on a creative partnership to design and implement specific, meaningful, and measurable changes in the client’s personal and/ or professional life.
4 Pillars of Erickson's Solution-Focused Coaching Model
Coaching is solution-focused
Coaching aims to move clients towards a positively framed future outcome. The coach and client do not dwell on the past experiences but rather focus on what the client's new future would look like and how the client shows up in that future vision.
Coaching is a systematic process
that helps the coach understand the client holistically. The coach assess how proposed changes fit in with or may impact the client's view of the world and contribution to their future vision and the bigger picture.
Coaching is a client-centred approach
it is the role of the coach to encourage their client to trust their own inner resources. In Erickson coaching, we believe that clients are experts in their own lives and have the resources within themselves to create their unique future vision.
Coaching is action-oriented
meaning that coaches help clients create change through specific, meaningful, inspired and actionable steps that lead to fundamental shifts in attitude, behaviours, and their desired habit formations.

I had a wonderful experience in the Art & Science of Coaching training at Erickson. The facilitators are highly knowledgeable, approachable and eager to share their expertise and love for coaching with each learner. From very early on, we were encouraged to use the skills we learned in a safe and supportive atmosphere and were then given useful and positive feedback. The materials were fun, highly engaging, inspirational, creative and accessible, I feel that my Erickson training had provided me with very strong foundation to start my Solution-focused coaching business.Jasmine Ramsey
I found everything we learned to be very useful and relevant to my objectives of helping people and becoming a coachL. Reinhart
The 5 Solution-focused principles are more complete than some other coaching schools that stop with the statement that clients are creative, resourceful and whole. It exemplifies why I chose Erickson for training over other schools.C.L.
The most measurable accomplishment after the Erickson training was improving my coaching skills well enough to modify our internal leader-coach training process, alongside our organizational effectiveness team. We were able to design an internal leader-coach training that capitalized on our organization’s cultural strengths and incorporated a very simple conversation model that included values, whereas most corporate-based coaching products do not venture far into values.Danielle K, Operational Director
