We are an eclectic bunch, yes! But we guess, what attracts people to each other are the underlying values that they believe in. Through the years, we have constantly talked about what these mean to us, as defined by the acronym C.H.O.P.S …. This is how we see it now. For most of us, these are not just corporate values, but values we live by in our personal lives too.
|VALUES||WHAT IT MEANS FOR US||WHAT IT MEANS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS|
|CARE||It means to care deeply for everything that touches our world – our team, our equipment, our proposals, our website, our families!||Staging inclusive workshop experiences where every participant feels engaged. Ensuring that our stakeholders come across as heroes.|
|HUMILITY||Being grounded individuals with no airs about us. Knowing that none of us individually can do what all of us together can.||Being completely approachable. Accepting that we may be wrong or ignorant at times. Being almost “invisible” in workshops.|
|OWNERSHIP||Taking the responsibility to set up our team members for success. Being always totally dependable.||No unpleasant surprises or excuses ever. Owning our client deliverables – end to end. Being responsive.|
|PASSION||Not approaching our work as a job to be done – but as a calling. Seeing every workshop we do as an opportunity to improve.||Going that extra mile to deliver not just a good workshop – but an awesome one! Putting ourselves on the line every time to say – “Happy or Free”.|
|SAFETY||Being individuals who are like “old shoes” – safe, warm and comfortable to be around with at all times.||Creating an environment of physical and psychological safety in our workshops. Never getting a cheap laugh at the cost of our participants.|
If you were to drop in to our office, it does not feel like a conventional office – for it is not. We don’t have fancy furniture or designer walls, but there is almost always a constant buzz of energy & a laugh is never too far away either!
We don’t have any super stars. We are all very ordinary people, who believe though, that our mission is: To Inspire WE before ME. Thanks to the quality of our people, we acknowledge we cannot be the cheapest in the market, but the fact that more than 70% of our customers keep coming back to us every year, tells us we are adding uncommon value through our engagements.
We don’t delude ourselves that through the workshop experience we stage, we can transform people we come in touch with. However, we passionately do believe that we can be the sparks who get individuals and teams thinking about a better way to live & work together! Don’t take our word for it – do drop in and have a quick read about what many of our customers have to say about us!
The FocusU LifeWe are not the typical company – we never want to be. We are collegial, we are informal, we don’t believe in designations or hierarchies, we laugh a lot & yet we are intense and passionate to the core. Here are a few elements of the FocusU Life:
LEARN & EARN
We believe that celebrations and rituals are not about the event. They’re about touching the hearts and souls of individuals. And so, we look for excuses to celebrate.
