Who We Are

FocusWorks is a training and development consulting firm. We specialize in developing people and organizations through strategically targeted and customizable training programs, seminars and interactive workshops designed to break down barriers and build a powerful culture of understanding. FocusWorks training fosters genuine collaboration that transforms workplaces in positive, productive ways – transcending conflict, embracing diversity and improving the way people communicate, strategize and serve one another.

Our Mission

At FocusWorks, our mission is to provide customized training and development solutions for our clients and drive the creation of healthy and motivated work environments. We accomplish this goal by promoting collaboration, cooperation, and teamwork at all levels within the organization, which ultimately improves performance and productivity.

Our Vision

FocusWorks seeks to inspire, motivate and educate each client to live out their purpose, assist organizations to achieve their business objectives and become a premier and internationally recognized training company.

Our Approach

FocusWorks Consulting Group transforms workplace challenges into opportunities. We meet you where you are, we speak your language and we leave you with proven, workable techniques and information you can use.

Company founder Roberta Pettis is certified as a Master Facilitator with Ntrinsx, an innovative-and-highly interactive “social intelligence” tool that helps people understand and appreciate each other’s intrinsic value, as well as how they might readjust their attitudes and behaviors to the benefit of the organization. Creating a positive-and-productive work environment is not a one-and-done process. We apply a proprietary, three-pronged approach to every workplace challenge or conflict.

The FocusWorks experience begins with a low-stress, highly interactive training class. Participants learn important interpersonal skills and have a positive experience, but one training class does not an effective leader make.

These classroom lessons are then applied and put to the test on the floor, in the day-to-day work environment.

FocusWorks performs a comprehensive follow-up, with one-on-one coaching, counseling and talking through – “How did that work for you?” How did that conversation go?” “Was this technique useful to you? “What do we need to change?” We work through the issues to reach positive, productive resolutions.
