Are you using continuous focus? If so, switch to single focus. Also, make sure the camera is set to "focus" not "release". It may help to select the focus point over the subject's face, rather than focus-recompose, or use face/eye detection (the latter is easier and quicker if you are photographing people)

This is great. I need to look at the manual for these settings for single focus and the focus not release setting. People seem to be critical of the accuracy of the face-eye detection.

The face/eye detect is pretty much worthless in the X-T2, but the single point focus box works fine.

I used a XT1 for an engagement party/photo booth and did about 700 photos and it nailed the face everytime.
