Figure Ground Consulting

We use our research and experience of organisations to work with leaders and their teams, as well as other consultants.

We speak at conferences and seminars and are active contributors to a number of forums including European Organisation Design Forum and the Organisation Development Network. Rob Farrands was this year awarded the 'At the Edge of the Field' award from the ODN Europe for his work over the last 15 years in the field of OD.

We design bespoke leadership programmes that address the challenges for leaders operating in conditions of complexity, turbulence and ambiguity. In addition we use our experience as coaches to equip managers to coach and mentor their own teams and other individuals.

Our Work on Gender Equality

Despite legislation and the significant efforts of many organisations to create workplaces where women can take an equal place with men there is still considerable work to be done to reduce pay disparities, to improve promotion decisions and to equip women leaders themselves to play their part in breaking the glass ceiling. Our work in this field supports client organisations to take a many-pronged approach to these issues. From advising on setting up regional women's networks, to developing programmes for mentoring and career management we bring our experience of coaching, organisation change and action research.

For the last five years we have been working with a global luxury brands group to address their ambition for gender equality amoung their key women talents.
