Uma Desai and the team at FocusU Mauritius took an amazing care of us throughout the whole day. They made it into the greatest Team Building that all of us have ever experienced. Such a well organised and well communicated team building.
We are incredibly thankful to Uma and the team for everything they did for us during that wonderful day.
General Manager | Petredec (Mauritius) Ltd
Excellent. The energy of your team was very contagious. My team is usually not quick in participating and I was therefore amazed to see them go along with it so effortlessly!
The key to good events often lies in the little details. From the choice of music to the colorful props, one could see that the event had been thought through up till the last detail. Bravo!
Improvements : Nothing comes to mind at this point.
Commercial Director | Hilton Hotels
We all enjoyed the experiential learning cycle through the 2 activities. You made a very good choice among all your menu. We managed to cover all our values in such a short period of time, amazing! The pace of the afternoon was really good and we all felt the energy moving up minute after minute. I’m sure the Numbers punch and Dominoes challenge will have a long term effect in our Team.
We will highly recommend Focus U to our guests and hope to have the pleasure to welcome you very soon at our hotel. Thank you again very much from all of us.

FocusU facilitated a 2 day 'Stepping into Coaching ' workshop for a group of us senior leaders from CGI. Their session was engaging and gave us insights on improving the effectiveness of our leadership. They ensured that the program was interactive enabling easy flow of thoughts and perspectives through out the program. I would recommend this program to anybody looking at growing as a coach leader.
L&D Partner, TrueBlue India LLP
30th October 2018 was a day full of learning and experience with the FocusU Team. This was the first session conducted for our Leadership team where we learnt the concept of Growth Mindset & Accountability. As a People’s company, everyone knows and understands the concept, however the kind of activities and experiential learning programmed by the FocusU team added an element of excitement and gave us enough room to think and play around it.
As one of the prime takeaways, we learnt the principle of See it, Own it, Solve it and Do it. Great effort was put into make the overall session very logical coupled with the de-briefs after summing up each activity.The session got wrapped up with a team picture and a short video of the experiences captured by the team in a nutshell. The TrueBlue India LLP team wishes you all the best for the future inventions in the Learning and evolving world of success.
Manager L&D | Dr Reddy
"Wanted to appreciate and acknowledge your and your team's efforts in conducting the 11 NHMP batches in the last fiscal. A few highlights of the year gone by w.r.t the session on Building and Leveraging Workplace Relationships – a) From all the concepts covered in the session, the concept of currencies got spoken about the most in the participant reviews. It has helped our participants to collaborate better with their cross-functional team members b) Your openness & promptness in working on the feedback shared with you as we were conducting the sessions is commendable. The change made in getting the participants to come up with their own case study and getting them to use it during the workshop has been a wonderful value addition in driving application of learning. Look forward to working together and further enhancing the impact of these workshops."
Manager Consulting | CGI
"I was part of the Leading Change training program and would like to share how much I enjoyed attending this training. This is the second training program with you. FocusU has always made the learning’s more interesting. The topics are converted into activities and the learning from the activities are then discussed as topics which makes us to relate it in real time. The best part is there is no PPT in the training and the team is always courteous enough to take our inputs for any discussion. A Facilitator is definitely more knowledgeable than the people who attend the training. But the key is for you to hold your intelligence within yourself and get down to the level of attendees. This what makes you “The Trainer” and FocusU does this the best. I would love to attend any of the future trainings conducted by FocusU and I would also surely encourage my team members to attend any of the trainings conducted by FocusU."
President & Global Chief People Officer | Cipla
"The intervention that FocusU designed was brilliantly relevant for our Management offsite. It was even better in its flawless execution. The entire day, through a battery of varying 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 exactly where to step back and allow the conversations to move forward unaided. We had great fun. We earned great insights and secured our feedforward plan. "
Head - Customer Service Development | DHL Express India
"Each activity that they conducted was done really-really well. A Ten star rating isn't enough to summarize the value that they added to the participants who attended."
Head – West | Aditya Birla Housing Finance
“The team had a great experience at the engagement session! Would say this is easily one of the best sessions I would have attended in a long time – the mix of fun and messaging was perfect and can easily notice the change in attitudes on the floor. Well done, pls. convey my kudos to the rest of the team as well.”
Aditya Birla Capital
“We had an excellent training program conducted by the team @ FocusU. I found the team full of energy and enthusiasm. The sessions were led with tremendous gusto ensuring participation of each member in the amazing activities surrounding the program. The messages were driven home through a very intuitive process of games in practice followed by theory sessions throughout the two days. The process of taking immediate feedback and discussion with members resulted in participative and experiential learning. The MasterChef session at the end was like the proverbial “icing on the cake” with team-spirit and team bonding displayed in action. Overall, the entire supply chain finance team had a wonderful and memorable time with some excellent learnings for each and every everyone. The results post the programme were amazing considering that each and every member of the SCF team started implementing a common goal via collaboration , customer centricity, taking the portfolio at a high level through cross selling various products.”
Associate General Manager | HCL Technologies
“I had an amazing experience for all four days and am sure it was same experience of my colleagues who attended the session. The concepts of bringing new ideas on to the table, igniting critical thinking, understanding the team in a better way through activities and taking the whole group along the course was amazing. Overall it was a fabulous and well-structured, object oriented training.”
Talent Management Partner | SKF
“We did a teambuilding program for our Global Team. We really could see a huge shift from the first day when people were hardly interacting with each other and post the program, we could see that members from all nationality were comfortably in interacting with each other and really did bond well. The FocusU team, through their structured, wonderful session really added a lot of fun and broke down invisible barriers. Also their logistic arrangement for material for activities is superb where we did not have to worry about anything.”
Learning and Development Head | NXP Semiconductors
"Without a shadow of a doubt, it was one of the finest team building event, I have experienced & same was the reaction from the participants too. Our facilitators were impressed & had high feedback for your team. Thanks to the entire team for giving us such a memorable experience ."
Managing Director | Teleflex India
"At the very outset, I would like to thank Focus on behalf of my management team for having organised a memorable team-building program for the Teleflex India management team, and for our senior leadership team from APAC.
As the leadership team of a fast paced medical devices company in India, we have an arduous, and at the same time- an immensely enjoyable challenge, of consistently out-performing the industry in India by a significant degree. In parallel, we have to ensure that the task of organisation and culture building continues, given our long history of having existed in India as a rather ‘placid’ joint venture company where any kind of change was an exception! Put both together, and you have the perfect situation of an organisation that really needs change management, and needs to build a team that works closely together with high levels of synergies.
While team building is a long journey for any organisation that wants to pursue it in letter and in spirit, what team Focus managed to achieve in a day for us was to act like a ‘catalyst’. You managed to run a deft script designed to make us think, understand ourselves better- as individuals, and as a collective, and helped us understand our individual and collective inflexion points that would help unlock our untapped potentials. All this- in a day’s work!
Thanks once again for organising a workshop high on energy, and the ‘fun’ quotient: It resonated very well with our core value of ‘Fun at work’!"
Commercial Manager | Marico
"A big thanks from the entire FCM team of Marico for conducting such a memorable workshop! The FocusU Team did a great job in creating an informal and casual atmosphere which was perfect for the kind of sessions that were conducted. Though the team has been working together for over a year, the team has obtained a greater understanding and has developed a renewed sense of bonding. The program was simple in design, energetic and stimulating with exercises that were both fun and informative. The highlight of the program was the sharing of life experiences which was conducted with remarkable ease and affability. Just while we thought the program had come to an end, we were pleasantly surprised with the recap video and photographs. It is safe to say that we have now been upgraded from colleagues to friends. This one-day workshop will not only go a long way in enhancing effectiveness at the workplace but has also created a strong human connect amongst the team. We look forward to have many such workshops in the future."
Junior Advisor, Natural Resource Management Programme | GIZ
"Thank you for giving us a unique opportunity to get to know each other and experience our team in a different set up and circumstances. Those 3 days spent in Palampur were awesome, amazing, full of laughter and positive emotions. Sometimes we forget just to hold on for a minute, look around us, enjoy life and see behind a colleague a human being with emotions, sorrows, crazy hobbies and undiscovered talents. Thank you for giving us a three-days-break and perfect conditions to grow together as a team."
Rakesh Prasad & Ritesh Ranjan
"Wanted to drop in a note and thank you for the fabulous activity conducted by Focus team yesterday for our All Hands Meet. Not only was the activity extremely engaging, it also brought out the relevant de-brief we were looking for around change. Needless to say, the participants enjoyed themselves a lot.
Focus team was extremely professional in ensuring the set-up etc. was well in place before we kicked off… This is even more commendable given this was a last minute thing… Great work and do communicate our kudos to your team as well…"
Rakesh Prasad | Manager, Learning & Development | India Global Delivery Center
"I cannot praise the Focus team highly enough. Laser precision in everything they did. Please pass on our appreciation to the team."

"A fantastic experience. The way, it went was amazing and I was able to correlate many things on what I am doing right and also I was able to re-align on what I should be doing to stay in line with 'reality' :). In fact, I have already suggested to many others to make this training as a “must attend” training irrespective of their title group. Whether it was the trainer or the content I am not really sure. But I would say, I thoroughly enjoyed it and liked it - without any second thoughts!Great job done by the Focus Facilitators – I would be eager to attend few more sessions if done by them on similar or other interesting training topics."
Manager – Business Development | Adani Green Energy Ltd.
"“Learning by doing” is the most efficient tool to improve the process and give opportunity to think out of box!!!!!!
In 2 days session, I have learnt huge amounts of approaching the different ways of thinking and have enjoyed every single one of your session. I’d like to say what a complete “eye-opener” day had been for me. It truly was brilliant, I enjoyed every minute. It was exactly what I needed in the run up to such a huge personal & career development and I have walked away with the confidence and the determination to get on.
Objectives were clearly stated from the start. I gained a greater knowledge of thinking on different ways and ideas. There are too many good points and case studies which gives a nice flavour to the workshop. The course was very relevant to my job and will help me in most aspects of my work as well as life. The workshop was very enjoyable and worthwhile from both a professional and personal perspective.
The facilitator gave the learning messages across by breaking everything down into simplified sections as it was very informative and practical. It will also help bring about profound change in the way we interact / deal with our process or people. The knowledge imparted by the facilitator was immense, intensive and inspiring. The methodology used was unique. The sessions brought about innovation and creativity in the way we do things and the way we want to do things, in other words “Sharpening our Axe”.
From start to finish, the standard of venue and food was excellent, facilitator lead an innovative and inspiring session to the group, keeping us busy all day to pack in as much as possible. By covering many aspects, including interactive activities, sharing personal experiences with each other really helped to cement our knowledge on the day.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to enhance my skills in such a vibrant learning environment. Now it’s time to put it all into practice. We left with the reminder that the edict to "Act locally but think globally" is still relevant."
SSC HR Lead - Louis Dreyfus Company Services India Private Limited
"I had heard rave reviews about FocusU from my colleagues and I reached out to them for team building activity for our year end party. It was organized on a weekend and when the employees arrived an hour late, energy and spirit was extremely low. I was very worried and concerned that the workshop might be an unsuccessful attempt in trying to ensure that everyone has a good time and also achieve the objectives of communication, trust and teamwork. However, all my concerns were put to rest with the high level of energizers conducted by Focus facilitator, which got everyone moving and interacting. The Cooking Challenge was the cherry on the cake. It demonstrated tremendous team work, planning and coordination, not to forget everyone having fun in the entire process.The day was full of energy, entertainment, fun, engagement and generated required enthusiasm. Thank you Focus TEAM for the power packed day."
Managing Director - Reed Manch Exhibitions
"The Leadership workshop helped all of us to take a step back and analyse ourselves on the kind of leadership traits we have and that we don’t have. How we could all become better leaders and help others grow along with us. It has been the most effective workshop for multiple levels in our organization. It helped our Leaders shine. It focused on how leaders can put their thoughts together in a more efficient manner, take ownership and be united with the team . The training has been extremely beneficial, our people are more oriented and have a clear vision on how to work with their teams seamlessly to deliver best results. We got coached on “One Team One Dream” vision which really helped the staff to be on the same page while performing tasks. The fun quotient mixed with the tasks made it an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience."
Head- Human Resources - The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases (The Union)
"As an important and defining step towards focused Leadership development at International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (the Union), South-East Asia office, FocusU helped us design and conduct the initiation workshop with the Senior Management Team. We needed a competent, experienced, confident and flexible partner to pair with us on this journey and FocusU team performed with excellence. It was not easy to keep a group of highly experienced Doctors and seasoned professionals engaged through the two days. Focus team did a great job navigating the group with confidence. Focus team also added the element of colour and fun through the pictures and videos they captured. We all enjoyed and therefore learned through the process with lots of laughter, fun and new insights. FocusU is now working with us to conduct our Annual Staff team building meet with 100 staff members at Goa. Working with the same team, I am sure, will be a pure delight for all of us!"
Senior Manager - Demand Planning (Modern Trade) Hindustan Unilever Limited
"We have never seen an activity which is so power packed and which generates loads of energy in the participating teams. The activity challenged the grey cells and the brawn alike since it was a perfect blend of creative and physical strength. The Juggernaut Challenge generated a sense of healthy competition within the competing teams. Each team took pride in the fact that their Juggernaut had to pass the test of durability, performance, utility and of course look pretty. While the challenge was on, we were pleasantly surprised to see the perfect coordination of the intact teams, the way the tasks got distributed amongst the team members, the way the elements came together to build the final cart, I mean, it was a treat to watch. Kudos to Focus team for coming up with such an amazing challenge and bringing us closer as a team."
Vice President - Talent Management & Learning (HR), Canara HSBC Life
"It's always a difficult task to energetically engage the Sr Leadership team in team building activities. As most of them have been to many such workshops in past and the first feeling is “Oh! Not again”. My compliments to Focus team on creating such fresh approach and innovative activities. This completely gives a new possibility to Executive Engagement and team building workshops. For us this was the 2nd session with FocusU, and I was a little sceptical initially if the impact will be at the same level as of last time. My compliments to the lead facilitator and the Focus team for making this experience a WOW experience yet again. The day was full of energy, engagement and generated required enthusiasm. The learning in the process was natural and not forced. Thanks Focus team."
Research Analyst - Mckinsey
"We have done similar exercises in past so I can honestly tell you that our experience with FocusU has been among the best.
Let me get into a couple details:
Pre-event discussions: Focus team were very accommodating during discussions and negotiations. We made changes, additions and requests and they were honored with minimum discomfort. Ice breakers/energizers: Very rarely has an energizer been as elaborate and 'energizing' as the actual activity. Focus team conducted them so well that the entire team was super pumped after each one, even right after lunch.
Activities: Focus Team kept it engaging and crisp. It was interesting to note that your prop usage was minimum (especially with the x-fit activity) but the impact, fun and learning was high. I also need out call out our appreciation for adding on an extra activity in the last minute. Thank you so much!
Trainers: Focus Facis did a fabulous job of keeping the spirits high, breaking the ice and keeping the group together. I particularly like the way you mixed up the group with the 'pick your closest coworker' trick :) When it comes to activities, the experience is only as good as the trainer so the success rests in the conducting and monitoring - hats off to you guys because we couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

"Indeed it was worth every bit of it! we saw what we got and we got what we saw ;-) Well you guys rock...!!Your mojo factor is your raw untamed and very fresh spunk & spirit !!! That's the one among other positives that makes the whole deal worth a cherish able account...keep at it ...keep there ...keep it up!! FocusU team makes this literally a smooth sail through complex concepts...a natural at that!"
Associate Consultant - CGI
"I attended the “Leading for Success” training program and wanted to share my feedback. It’s a 2 day training program and I can say it was less than 3 hours of class room session and the remaining hours were full of practical session. The best part is, we were all asked to perform multiple activities and concepts were explained by observing us during the course of the activity. So there was no boring class room kind of lecture and the learning was from your own action.
As I already informed, I have attend this training like 2 years back and I am sure I did not enjoy the training as much as I did now. Many thanks to you/ L&D for organizing this type of session and do pass on my special thanks to the FocusU team for an interactive session.
I think it might be worth to spread the word that it’s an all-new training however just carrying the same old name, so that some old lads like me gives a try."
Senior Software Engineer - CGI
""LEADING FOR SUCCESS" – One other brilliant session. Thanks a ton to CGI for creating a platform to explore. I thoroughly enjoyed the two day session! And I would like to share my experience with all of you who are keen :) The overall objective of this session is to give an insight on the introspection which gives a lead to handle you according to the situation, team, work culture, environment. It was beautifully captured through the MBTI® psychometric test results, which is a personality test to understand dichotomies. It's like reading yourself through the mirror!!! If the 4 dichotomies are captured carefully in day-to-day activities, we shall be able · to build trust and confidence · to understand, communicate and advance the learning style · to discover suitable opportunities · to handle constructive conflicts · a role of feed forward. I truly appreciate all the effort taken to keep us energetic through multiple activities. I would like to extend a special mention to the FocusU training team for organizing and executing the session so perfectly possible. I would recommend everyone to participate and benefit from the session as early as possible. Opportunity may knock only once. It is never lost. Someone will take the one you miss. "The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today." So guys ENROLL :) Thanks again!"
Vice President – Hindustan Unilever Limited
"We have been depending on FocusU for more than 6 years to conduct team-building sessions and exciting outbounds for our managers & employees. The SoapBox challenge done with racing cars brought an innovative challenge to the team. It is not just about building a car and decorating it. Or for that matter racing it on a small track by choosing right drivers, pit crew and cheer leaders. It is a lot more about team work, creativity, communication, performance, collaboration and finally the excitement of winning, all rolled into one. I would strongly recommend everyone to go take the SoapBox challenge and spend a day learning with and about their colleagues."

"The team had so much fun, while experiencing learnings from each other and the activity itself. So many moments of wow - we loved it all."
Sr Manager, Yamaha Motor India
"I would like to thank FocusU team for putting up an excellent Sr. Management intervention (AGM – AVP level) -“Regional Executive Program” using their Leadership Challenge construct. The program was aimed to develop Yamaha leaders embodying Yamaha brand. The intervention included conducting a diagnostic and designing the workshop to suit the need of the target audience, which the Focus Team did impeccably. The part that stands out for me is their ability to design the content and inclusion of relevant activities in each section which ensured the experiential way of driving the learning. The team was full of energy throughout and had amazing coordination, making every single session a power packed one!!
Their USP is the unique FocusU way of conducting the workshop with elements of fun with learning.
Here are some responses we received from our senior personnel:-
- 1. “Experiential Learning with latest concepts, these activities were novel and something that we have not come across earlier. Overall a near perfect learning experience.
- 2. “All the sharing of this session are very important. I am touched in many ways”
- 3. “Each and Every one of us were fully engaged throughout”
- 4. “The way the training program was structured was very nice- Essentially learning with fun and games, broke the ice with fellow colleagues from other departments”
- 5. “Very happy with the way it has been conducted and facilitated”
FocusU team, we wish you all the luck and hope we have some more power packed sessions with you for our employees."
Vice President – Business Operations | Global Enterprise Solutions | Tata Communications Ltd.
"I acknowledge with a sense of gratitude that Team FocusU was able to successfully generate high levels of enthusiasm & energy during the Training Program on Innovative Thinking & Collaboration held in Arvi last week. This demonstrates your professional approach, ability to correlate industry best practices and expertize in experiential learning programs. The participants could relate the learnings to their functions or responsibilities and take away practically executable action plans!!"
Deputy Manager – IPC Region 1, Insurance, XL Catlin
"Within just 2 minutes of our interaction with the Focus team, we got convinced that our decision to go for new trainers will not be wrong decision. They explained the activities so passionately that in that half hour of discussion with them we were already day dreaming of our offsite day. Then the D day came and we met our 3 awesome Facilitators. They swayed us away from our daily work pressure with their warm and infectious smile and extraordinary energies. We did celluloid challenge and oh my god it was super super fun. For that 90 minutes we all were living our hidden childhood dream to be an actor or actress. What’s commendable is they imbibed our company values in those activities so everyone is having fun but not forgetting the values that we inherit. It was out first time with FocusU but I am assured this is just the beginning. Now people in the team look forward to activities because of the fun we had because of the Facilitators from FocusU. Hats off to the team for doing such a wonderful job and inspiring many others including me to take up the task of making others happy by doing great work. Once again a big thanks to all of you."
Head HR, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd
"I take this opportunity to appreciate you all, for the focussed approach, detailing carried out and excellence in delivery which has helped us build, the initiative of managing our high performing employees, to a new level. It is a difficult task to design an intervention for levels from an officer to an Associate General Manager, that too from varied backgrounds and locations. Your team's commitment, dedication and effective partnering with us in terms of understanding the organisational values & the desired outcome - have set unparalleled benchmarks as every batch passed by. Thank you so much for your efforts.It's really commendable to see how you all organize your efforts and inspired our team members to orient, channelize, present and pioneer. You were all truly amazing and demonstrated extra ordinary skills in all your activities, presentations and involvement. The way you gave tips with fun directly went to the participating employees mind and heart. In fact the last gathering of From Spark to Sparkling Reality - Coming Together and Making a Difference was a soul stirring experience for the participants. You truly uplifted the spirit of participants, and they were very energetic, enthusiastic and positively charged with a new perspective while leaving the venue. I am confident that these positive seeds will germinate and be nurtured to grow in coming times. Do keep up with your outstanding contribution and performance. Wish you all the best for your future endeavours."

“I am writing to thank you for an exceptional job well done for the team building activity. On behalf of ELCA Cosmetics we would like to thank the Focus team for their dedication and homework well done and were aware of our need and the company profile.We want you to know we all were very impressed by the way they conducted the whole team building activity from start to the end. We enjoyed the cooking challenge and all were talking very highly about it. You have such talented colleagues. The quality of the firms employees is an indication of future success. I am glad that I chose FocusU. Our General Manager Mr. Rohan Vaziralli was very impressed. We look forward for some more activities for our company.”
"On behalf of GET Team PepsiCo, I would like to thank and congratulate the FocusU team, for organizing a perfect outbound for us at Jim Corbett. To put it in a few words, ‘saying we had a blast’ would be an understatement. The team exercises were a beautiful combination of fun and learning. Probably the best way for colleagues to know each other in a short span of time. Innovative games and energizers which never got dull and kept everyone interested and energized at all times. The time flew away too fast , look forward to more trips with the Focus Team. Cheers."

"The messages of continuous learning and co-creation were brought out beautifully through the experiential activity, during our workshop with our Top distributors. "
Vice President & Head, Pepsico Global Value Innovation Center
"FocusU organized our first offsite in 2013. That they were the obvious choice for our second offsite in 2014 speaks for the impact they had made with their first. The Facilitators were amazing. Their affable personality and strong communication skills ensure a great connect with the participants thus leading to a universal participation. They have the ability to connect the content and activities to the unique challenges faced by the team thus making the content all the more relevant. Their passion & commitment rubs on the rest of the team too. It’s not about the content or activities. Those can be replicated by others. It’s what the Focus team does with them which makes the experience so special. It’s a pleasure partnering with the Focus team. We wish them all the best."
Vice President, J.P. Morgan Asset Management
“We were initially a little apprehensive on how the team building event would actually play out, given that we had not worked with FocusU earlier. However, I can speak on behalf of every individual present that not only did the FocusU team exceed our expectations; they did a wonderful job in actually bringing together and creating friendships amongst a very diverse group of people. The FocusU team really put a lot of thought into each and every exercise, and at the end of each session there were only smiles and laughter amongst our team members. A special mention for the “Pixel Challenge” – I think it was a brilliant exercise and the end product, the painting that we created as a team, is something we all are very proud of! A big thank you to the FocusU team for playing a key role in making our global strategic meet a grand success!”
Director - HR & OD, AMEA, DSM Sinochem Pharmaceuticals India Pvt Ltd
"The MBTI® workshop conducted by FocusU, was an excellent experience for our leadership team; the complete session was a learning platform for everyone and the list of activities extended the perfect opportunity to introspect on self and make way for more team building. Thanks to the FocusU team for creating a wonderful experience and we wish them great success."
Director, Impulse India
"The Focus Team facilitated 2 four day management cum fun, pan company offsites. They were absolutely fabulous! They didn’t just overcome our initial apprehensions about such outdoor learning programs, their achievements went beyond our expectations. They helped achieve all our defined objectives: create employee connect with our strategy, vision rollout, facilitate meaningful team and pan company relationships and have A LOT of fun!
Each activity they proposed turned out to be a success. The Domino activity was a particular favourite of all - it was fascinating to see a two hour activity bring out the best, and worst, in people. That made the self reflections very valuable. It is easily one of the most impactful group learning experiences.
The entire Focus team was completely committed from day one. They are very thorough and professional, have a great can-do attitude and gelled very well with all levels of people in our organization. They have a great company DNA and its been a pleasure working with them.
Focus, we are looking forward to engaging you again. Wish you all the best."
Director, HR & Admin, Zimmer India
“An amazing overall experience, which was like peeling layers of leadership psychology to discover self and understand others in the team. All done with support from Focus group members who led us to a journey of unearthing the mindsets through challenging tasks and a right amount of debriefing. The session has facilitated in increasing collaboration among the team members and driving the organizational mission with renewed passion.”
DGM, L&D, Indigo Airlines
We chose FocusU for a day of fun filled learning for our coaches and facilitators. From the design stage itself it was a partnership all the way to create a program just right for the IndiGo way. The Focus team listened in carefully to understand the nuances and execute to perfection. Our objectives had to be met through play. The final experience was delightful – full of laughter and bonding. The Geocoaching activity was a memorable and powerful tool with many ‘A-ha’ moments directly applicable to any result oriented workplace. The facilitation was exemplary. Role modelling is the best form of creating learning and the day created an experience from which our own coaches and facilitators may evolve.
Manager Leadership Capability, PepsiCo India Region
We have been working with Focus team for more than a year now. They have always delivered to the objective set out with perfection. They have always brought new ideas and exercises to help deliver the message and achieve the objective. Lego Serious Play for instance is an extremely powerful tool which we have used for team visioning sessions for teams both on business front and on team norms front. The entire exercise using LSP is engaging and helps brings out various aspects of discussion on the table in a non-threatening way.
Chief Information Officer (CIO), India Region | Pepsico India
"The Fire walk and the Glass walk activity conducted by FocusU was excellent!! This event definitely displayed the concepts of teamwork and communication that we were hoping to achieve. Firewalk and glasswalk made the team realize that they can push well past their current mental and physical limits and help them break-through physiological barriers that may be holding them back from their true potential. The feedback was extremely positive from all involved and it was a great event came together well. Well done TEAM Focus!!!"
