When we use SF thinking in our interactions with students, we are looking to invite them into a different way of viewing their behaviour and learning that will open up options and help them to realise their full potential. Finding a point of motivation is a crucial opening to a conversation and there are numerous practical suggestions that can help move beyond ‘don’t know’ responses to create a dialogue where change and difference can occur. This chapter will outline techniques in increasing the observability of details around preferred outcomes (what is wanted) to open up different routes to change and possibility; highlight useful SF questions to give prominence to useful resources and qualities that can support change in the desired direction; and explore creative uses of the scale framework to build a conversation from a clear beginning to a useful end. Two and five minute conversation prompts are included to augment dialogues across the school day that are equally accessible for facilitating peer conversations. Key issues such as building confidence, motivation and resilience and how to deal with setbacks will be addressed in a way that creates energy and movement in even the toughest of situations.
