A Facilitated Journey
In a 1996 HBR article, James Collins and Jerry Porras showed that companies with a strong sense of vision had outperformed the others in the stock market by a factor of 12 since 1925! Vision reflects what we care most about and is derived from our sense of purpose and values. It provides meaning, attracts commitment, and focuses human energy by drawing on our deepest yearnings in striving towards a purposeful goal. As someone said: "A task without a vision is drudgery, while a task with a vision is the hope of the world". Visions provide a clear, easily understood image of a better future. Strong visions inspire us. They embody our values, provide us with purpose, and direct us to what will be different and distinctive. Kennedys vision "To put a man on the moon by the end of the decade", inspired a whole nation. At FocusU we are particularly excited when we can help clients take this journey.
The Challenge however are many: • To ensure that the wisdom of every individual in the room is captured - and that no one individual dominates the proceedings due to rank or personality. • To ensure that the vision is an emergent one that reflects the collective hopes and desires of everyone in the room. • To ensure that not just everyone's intelligence, but also their individual imagination is tapped. • To ensure that the vision is converted in a few simple guiding principles that guide the day to day actions of the team / organization. Bringing together their experience in industry with knowledge of group facilitation techniques and the Lego Serious Play methodology, FocusU Facilitators help hand-hold your team to take the step-by-step journey in arriving upon a compelling vision that has everybody's buy-in. Contact Us today - we will be glad to meet up and discuss the possibilities for your team!
"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!"
