Solution Focused Agile Coaching

What if an Agile Coach could have a way to determine the right question to ask to intervene on an individual or a team? How valuable would this be for a such a coach? The Solution Focused methodology is widely used in psychotherapy and also in coaching. It is based on designing a solution and working out the steps needed to achieve it. This is a very elegant approach because it shifts the discussion from the emotionally-filled problem state to where the result is: the solution state. This technique can be successfully used when coaching Agile teams, for example during planning and retrospectives, but also as a reflection mechanism and coaching technique for Scrum Masters, Product Owners and the whole development team as well.
