Our History - Founded in 1988
Yes, over 30 years ago. We started as “Corporate Outdoor Activities” and delivered interactive outdoor exercises. This history is important because it highlights that we are first and foremost facilitators that work with the behaviour of the individuals in front of us rather than presenting concepts designed in a classroom.
As we grew, we spent less time outdoors and more time facilitating teams, leaders, and culture. In 1997 we changed our name to Team Focus. This signified our shift from facilitating insightful activities to delivering complete transformation programs.
Since then, our network of very talented people has grown and so has our commitment to the following principles:
We provide guidance and coaching but you and your leaders need to transform your teams and culture. You are accountable for the culture you create. An external coach is just there to provide guidance and if they do too much the transformation becomes dependent on them, which is not sustainable.
To achieve an amazing transformation you need to engage your people in the process. Greatness is created when you all work towards the culture you need to achieve your purpose.
The unique qualities of your culture need to be recognised and this takes a flexible approach. We’ve never recommended the same process with different clients. We’ve worked with financial institutions, manufacturing, mines, retailers, even prison officers and we know that each client requires something different and unique.
Less is more. Keep it simple and you will have far more impact. Statistics, charts, graphs, definitions, and too much data will only complicate the process and create resistance.
Your leaders are the key to your success. Focus on leadership because they will deliver your cultural transformation.
