“FOCUS is able to hone in on the most important strategic initiatives and gain a level of engagement and alignment across the organization. They deliver real results. I believe in the people. I believe in the product.”Craig Gilpin, CCO, North West
“ We believe in investing in our people and we have engaged several firms to help us do that. I must admit that none of them have had the positive impact that FOCUS has, in such a short period of time. FOCUS facilitated results are pragmatic and can  immediately put to work to increase productivity and quality as the team gets stronger. And they did that WITH our people who really liked the FOCUS approach. We will continue to work with FOCUS as we grow our organization”  Richard Cupido, President and Owner, Burlington Paving
Good things last.  I was recently asked to speak in New York, to an international group of chief librarians from major urban centres from around the world. They share innovative efforts and the results annually. The core of my presentation was about  a strategic planning and alignment system that Fred and his team at FOCUS Management facilitated  at the Mississauga Library System, 15 years ago!  The process was robust, rigorous and collaborative in nature and Ahead…Mississauga Library System
“We lean on Richard Gerofsky, Partner at FOCUS to help develop our strategic roadmap. Richard’s sound counsel, useful guidance and effective facilitation enabled Mayhew to think strategically, keeping steadfastly committed to our corporate vision and strategic objectives.  Richard is a key asset around the Mayhew boardroom table, and considered an extension of our Executive team.” Marcia Mayhew, CEO, Mayhew
“We have certainly come a long way in a short period of time.  Recently, we won an award for the best performing energy efficient homes in North America.  The Focus Management Team, Fred, Richard and Stephen, have become a part of the L!V Communities Team, working with us to create better communication, clarity and alignment.  Our team is now focussed on what really matters and that’s what generates results that our customers expect and deserve.”Anthony Martelli, Chief Operating Officer L!V Communities

What We Do and Why

For business leaders who need better results faster, our Strategic Alignment Training Process delivers Great Execution of what Matters Most

Unlike traditional training approaches, our method builds:

  • clarity and alignment to business focus and direction
  • through facilitated team conversations
  • that drive commitment and action

Over the past 20 years, hundreds of clients of all types and sizes have successfully used our training approach to dramatically improve performance and value.

How do we do it?…. by working with our clients to get fibre optic clarity, laser alignment and unstoppable commitment on two things:

  • The organization’s strategy…the mounting evidence shows that only 1/3 say they understand their strategic plan and even fewer say they are committed to make it happen.
  • Accountabilities…75% of organizations say they are poor at execution; in those companies, only 32% say they are clear on what action they should take and what decisions they can make

Here’s how we graphically describe the impact of clarity, alignment and commitment on what every leader wants…Getting What Matters Most, DONE.
