Figure Ground Consulting

Our consulting projects range from the small and short-term to the complex and strategic. We take an action research stance to our clients’ dilemmas and issues. This means we inquire and explore before we recommend and act. We prefer to immerse ourselves in the organisation by meeting those associated with the issue. We know – sometimes from bitter experience – that if we don’t take into account multiple perspectives we risk only solving a small percentage of the issue.


We work globally and have recently consulted in France, Sweden, Canada, Kazakhstan, and South Africa as well as the UK. Shown here is a sample of our consulting projects - please contact us if you would like us to tell you more.

As consultants we are usually approached when some kind of problematic situation is focussing attention in a large complex system. We have to be present, be great listeners, remain curious and thoughtful despite our own biases and prejudices and hold the right conversations on topics that are sometimes uncomfortable - or have been hidden in the corporate cupboards.

Most recently we have condensed our understanding into a third generation virtual learning tool supported by interactive software. We have developed this for a large retail client to help their managers think outside the normal cultural tramlines and develop themselves in unison with the development of the business.

Our clients end up with viable solutions to their problems and also a deeper understanding of their organisation.
