    I am writing this as an extremely satisfied and delighted customer. Ours is a very young team. Many of our team members joined us directly from campus over the last five years. We also have a multi-disciplinary engineering team. Our challenge was to get the entire team working together as one, demonstrating a high degree of ownership. For this, we needed a program that was highly engaging and fun.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the two day MBTI® session! The overall objective was to get insights on introspection - to enable us to handle our team, work culture and environment, according to the situation. It's like reading yourself through the mirror! If applied on a daily basis, we are able to build trust and confidence, to communicate, discover opportunities, and handle constructive conflicts.

    Thank you FocusU and Smollan L&D team for designing such a wonderful continuous learning program. It acted like small and effective doses to look for what next. Case studies chosen were all relevant for my Global Development Team & I could not ask for more. Let’s plan for some monthly 1 hour on premise confluence sessions.

    The Learning challenge was very informative and challenging. The thing which I love about this challenge is that it provides videos also that make it easy to understand the concept.
