For each workshop, we can help you with three different teasers you can customize and share periodically with participants to build excitement and get traction.

You can download a program overview from each of the topic pages. While this will give you an overall workshop structure, our learning designers will still need to talk with you to customize the workshop to your context.

We are glad you asked that question. Every learning intervention starts with "Why?" and "What is the difference you want to see at the workplace because your learner attended this session?" Once we are clear, our learning designers put together a thoughtfully curated learning journey that could be a mix of different methodologies chosen to suit your learning environment. Besides this, to aid learning, we can (optionally) buttress it through:

  • A pre-learning assignment for learners to know where they stand before the journey
  • A participant handbook aids the learner in returning to what was covered during the session and reviewing it again. It helps in learning reinforcement.
  • A post-learning assignment helps learners know where they stand after the journey. Assessing the gap in learning helps learners in bridging it.
  • Pocket insights—a ready reckoner with the key concepts that can either be carried along or be pinned up as a ready reminder.
  • Manager Essentials—tips (for the managers of the learners) to recognize behavioral changes and create an environment that encourages the learners to put what they have learned to practice.
  • Post-learning application of learning at the workplace through a specific project.
  • We try to capture the impact of every learning intervention through an impact report that is then shared with clients.

Every single workshop (except the asynchronous self-paced modules) is customized to the precise customer need and brief. Our client advisory team will work closely with you to understand your context and pass it on to the execution team.

    This was not just another FocusU workshop. To elaborate, it was right on the brief and very high on engaging all members of the team! The team has come back extremely motivated and charged up which was the desired outcome of the workshop. Various activities which were well thought through and executed helped everyone open up and ensured active participation from everyone.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the two day MBTI® session! The overall objective was to get insights on introspection - to enable us to handle our team, work culture and environment, according to the situation. It's like reading yourself through the mirror! If applied on a daily basis, we are able to build trust and confidence, to communicate, discover opportunities, and handle constructive conflicts.

    We needed a competent, experienced, confident and flexible partner and FocusU performed with excellence. It was not easy to keep a group of highly experienced doctors and seasoned professionals engaged. FocusU team did a great job navigating the group with confidence. We all enjoyed and therefore learned through the process with lots of laughter, fun and new insights.
