How it works:

This course is delivered remotely, and the blended approach means learning is via:

  • A physical box of resources including a workbook that guides you through the programme and the best-selling Go M.A.D. Thinking books – “The Art of Making a Difference” & “Go M.A.D. About Coaching”
  • An online learning portal to access videos, podcasts and printable materials for the self-learning elements of the programme
  • Live group sessions to build on your self-learning and practice your new skills and techniques
  • Coaching support before, during and after the programme by our Solution Focused Thinking Engineers

The blended approach of this programme allows you to learn at your own pace. And, you have time to put your learning into practice between the live sessions. In addition to our facilitators, you will also have the support of other delegates as you coach each other through your 30, 60, 90-day challenges.

"Fantastic! I came away with the tools to move my managers and teams onwards to greater levels.

I have also found a way of getting the managers to find the answers from within themselves instead of just asking questions that they know the answers to."


– Customer Relations Operations Manager, Virgin Media



The Foundations

The programme kicks off with 3 hours of self-learning when you receive the physical box of resources. This is followed by a day dedicated to introducing you to Solution Focused Thinking through a 4-hour live group session in the morning and an afternoon of 3 hours of self-learning. The next week will see you exploring goal defining, possibility thinking, and coaching skills through a mixture of live group sessions and self-learning.

Putting into practice

With all the foundations in place we then support you to put your learning into practice on a day-to-day basis. We keep in touch through live group review sessions every 30 days. During this time, you will complete two challenges to Make a Difference, enabling you to use and embed the tools and skills you have learnt into your everyday life and work right away. At the end of the 90 days you will have completed your Solution Focused Thinking Mastery.

Celebrating your success!

You are now a Solution Focused Thinking Master! At the end of the programme you will be exclusively invited to join an ‘Audience with Andy Gilbert’ online celebration. Andy is the founder of Go MAD Thinking and developed the Results Framework that underpins all the tools and techniques. This is an exclusive opportunity to ask him any questions and pick his brains about the powerful framework. An opportunity not to be missed!
