Translate Strategy Into Action

Imagine A Work Environment…

  • Where every person is PROUD of what they do
  • The RIGHT people make the RIGHT decisions
  • Teams NAVIGATE chaos with grace and ease
  • The culture is FREE of bureaucracy
  • And EVERYONE moves in UNISON

Do you see the world at work as we see it?

Organizations are full of leaders and innovators
People do their best work free of coercion
The best boss is a common purpose
Profit and revenue are everyone’s business
Bureaucracy is dead; it just doesn’t know it yet

Aligning Culture to Business
Strategy is What We Do

You are proud of your organization and see great opportunity ahead, yet the path forward is disorienting and fraught with uncertainty. Disruptive technology, relentless competition and people issues demand effective leadership.

You want the right people making the right decisions. You want to manage risk appropriately. You want to recruit and retain the people you need to innovate and succeed. You want to make winners of all your stakeholders.

Here’s what you also want: an ability to align your business strategy with an effective people strategy in order to create a culture that powerfully translates strategy into action.

NuFocus helps you to implement organizational self-management through culture, systems, language, technologies, principles and practices that will make your business thrive.

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible. —Frank Zappa

Our Process

You know the people and your business best – it’s why we always start from where you are.



We ask and we engage. We listen to you and we listen to your culture in the context of your business. We scan your environment to discover hurdles and opportunities. We ask powerful questions that go to the heart of the matter and respect your time. We help you see the future with new clarity.



We invite you to experience the power of aligning people strategy with business strategy connected to issues and business challenges you are facing. We introduce social technologies to engage meaningful discussions leading to action-oriented strategies that deliver immediate and measurable results.



Building on our initial learning and experience, we work together to implement the systems, tools, practices and processes that create the foundation for a high performing culture. We combine your business knowledge with our organizational design expertise to create a recipe for success.



From the discovery stage to execution, our goal is to listen, guide, teach, adapt and continuously transfer knowledge, processes, tools and skills. There is no pride of ownership in what we do. We always seek to leverage the best of what you do to what we know. Your success is our success.

Excellence is Growth

We believe growth is the by-product of excellence. As partners in your continuing growth, it represents our deepest commitment to you every step of the way. Even after the engagement, we will never be farther than a phone call away to be a sounding board, advisor, or collaborator.
