"Our FoCuSeD™ Facilitation Classes give you effective leadership, business, and interpersonal skills that build your confidence."


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 effective 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.

"Yesterday, I was a participant in an offsite meeting most of the day and there were 2 people with constant side-bar conversations and it was distracting. We know each other pretty well so I chastised them at the end of the day. But then, (with a smile) announced to the group that I was going to apply my “Gary Rush Facilitation” training and stood by their table, just silently hovering. It got their attention and we all had a good laugh. I expect better behavior from them today! Thought I’d drop you a note and let you know that the tips and techniques learned in your classes (albeit 10+ years ago) are alive and well and executed on a regular basis."
