Reinventing Your Assumptions

Speaker: Daniel Meier, Co-founder and Director at Solutionsurfers® , Executive - Coach, Trainer, and Mentor 


"As a coach, control what you can control – your mouth!“ Tim Gallway

In this highly interactive and practical session we are going to focus, explore and experiment with our own assumptions: our assumptions about how our client progress, how resourceful and powerful they are and last but not least how these assumptions influence the length and the success of our work. 

Engaging in different short experiments and brief coaching sessions, we will allow ourselves to explore the importance and the influence of these assumptions in our coaching work. 

We will discover, how just by changing our mindset, we can gain some more precision and advance with easiness in coaching.

The basis of this session will be the Brief Coaching approach in which often one coaching session is all it takes.


  • Discover the influence of your assumptions on the length and the success of our work as well as on your relationship with a client.
  • Experiment with different assumptions by participating at brief coaching sessions during the workshop.
  • Gain more precision and advance with easiness in coaching through questioning and reinventing your coaching-mindset.
