Creating a Shared Vision

A 1996 HBR article, James Collins and Jerry Porras showed that companies with a strong sense of vision had outperformed the others in the stock market by a factor of 12 since 1925! Clearly there is a strong case for teams to craft a compelling vision!

    The intervention that FocusU designed was brilliantly relevant for our management offsite. It was flawlessly executed. The exercises got us to smile, laugh, put our thinking caps on, connect but above all reflect constructively about some of our key issues. The facilitators kept the energy and encouragement going but knew where to step back and allow the conversations to move forward unaided.

    Working with FocusU has been a pleasure. We have realised that there is a ‘Focus’ way of working and one ends up experiencing Fun, Professionalism, Learning, Action, Achievement while achieving the outcomes of the workshop. The workshop experience was exhilarating for all participants where some quoted that the time flew as they worked and had fun, we achieved the outcome and felt motivated.

    What started as a search for a training vendor on Google has come a long way with several identified FocusU interventions over the years. In each intervention, we have achieved our stated objectives of Learning & Development - like Team building, Collaboration, Decision making in uncertainty, Drive for results, Shared vision etc. among a very diverse group of people.

    FocusU has always delivered to the objective set out with perfection. They always bring new ideas and exercises to help deliver the message and achieve the objective. Lego Serious Play is an extremely powerful tool which we have used for team visioning sessions. The entire exercise is engaging and helps bring out various aspects of discussion on the table in a non-threatening way.

    When I first saw your huge clientele that included companies like Adobe, Deustche Bank and E&Y, I wondered - do large companies keep coming back since you're the best at what you do, or have you turned out to be the best at what you do because large companies keep coming back? That list will grow bigger as FocusU has certainly exceeded all expectation at our recent team building event.
