“ 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

The FOCUS Training Difference


We begin with CONVERSATION.

At FOCUS Management, we facilitate highly-productive strategic conversations geared to business success. Truly transformative conversations, where everyone is encouraged to speak their mind, express new ideas, challenge what doesn’t work, and defend what does. We provide a training framework for conversation based on a solid understanding of your unique business challenges, goals, objectives and your current corporate culture.

Great conversations provide CLARITY and lead to breakthrough business results.

Training methodology based on a well-facilitated exchange of thoughts and ideas helps to define and clarify your strategy for the people who make it happen. When the mandate is clear, individuals better understand how their work contributes to the overall success of the organization. The most important work gets done, and done well.

Clarity leads to ALIGNMENT, and mitigates organizational wobble.

Wobble is the opposite of organizational alignment. Wobble makes organizations miss goals, lose customers and waste time. Our  training meetings are thoughtfully designed to stamp out wobble by making sure every person in your organization is aligned to a clear and achievable strategy.

Everyone matters. Everyone gets it. Everyone is in. That’s COMMITMENT.

As work becomes more meaningful, individuals become more committed to their role and more loyal to their employer. A clear and relevant strategy, supported by success metrics and effective communication creates a highly motivated workforce focused on business results.

Clarity, Alignment, Commitment – there’s no time to waste. Let FOCUS help you get your conversation started.
