What distinguishes our FoCuSeD™ Classes is the consistent message that they provide. They provide consistency in terminology, models, and concepts that are built upon the fundamental principles of facilitation. They share ideas using a consistent basis of understanding - this ensures that everyone holds the same fundamental principles. They are effective, comprehensive, and provide a complete set of skills, knowledge, and practice - this ensures that what is learned, is immediately applicable. They provide specific tools to effectively work with groups in any capacity and be successful - this builds capacity within the organization. You learn "how to" effectively combine Relationship Behavior and Task Behavior to drive out task success along with team performance - this ability is crucial to bringing people together to accomplish a task.

Gary Rush Facilitation | Facilitator Services - We have been facilitating since 1983. We facilitate many types of workshops involving a wide variety of processes, issues and number of participants. Our primary goal is to get a group of individuals to form as a team, learn to communicate, and achieve a goal or accomplish a task. Workshops and projects facilitated by us have increased productivity resulting in a 20% to 40% reduction in effort required to gather information. We successfully tie our extensive facilitating experience with our knowledge of:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Business Analysis
  • Business Process Re-engineering

  • Project Management
  • Product Ideation
  • Process Modeling
  • Business Requirements
  • Data Modeling
  • Methodologies
  • and other processes to deliver a complete solution that is developed by engaging the appropriate stakeholders to reach consensus based decisions. Read more...


    Additionally, we provide high-quality Co-Facilitators to capture the decisions and input from the workshop process. Do not overlook the importance of the Documentation Process. The document produced from a FoCuSeD™ workshop provides the raw data for project deliverables. If not documented, it did not happen.
