OSKAR is a framework for solution focused coaching: The guiding principles of Solution Focused Coaching is for the Coach to take a step back to look at the "bigger picture". To look for positive opportunities in what is the current reality. This is particularly useful as an approach for "tricky "situations eg. where person is unclear on what they want or what the goal is.
1. OUTCOME · What is the objective of this coaching? · What do you want to achieve today? - What do you want to achieve in the long term? 2. SCALING · On a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 representing the worst it has ever been and 10 the preferred future, where would you put the situation today? · You are at 'x' now; what did you do to be at 'x'? · How would you know you had got to 'x' + 1? 3. KNOW-HOW & RESOURCES · What helps you be at 'x' on the scale, rather than 0? · When do you achieve the outcome? Have you previously achieved the outcome? - Even a little part of the outcome? · What did you do to make it happen? How did you do that? What did you do differently? 4. AFFIRM AND ACTION · What's already going well? · What is the next small step you could take and achieve? · You are at 'x' now, what would it take to get you to 'x' + 1? 5. REVIEW What's better? · What did you do that made the change happen? · What effects have the changes had? · What do you think will change next?
