If Your Organisational Landscape was a Garden…


From Suzanne Hitchen | Founder of Instep

I’m not much of a gardener but every week I find myself watching Gardener’s World (is it a middle-aged thing?).

I particularly pay attention to ‘jobs you can do this week in the garden’. Recently I’ve started to do them and, guess what, my garden is starting to look good (I may even have a summer BBQ, so people can marvel at my handy work!).

“What’s that got to do with Organisational Development?” I hear you ask.

Well, if your organisational landscape was a garden…

  • What areas look good?
  • Where are weeds taking hold?
  • What plants are just a bit ‘lack lustre’?
  • What areas just don’t work well together?


Ponder for a while, and then do just one job to improve it…

Give us your most inharmonious team for one day.

When we give them back to you, you’ll marvel at the difference! It’s like having Monty Don in your garden!

Give us a call or get in touch and we’ll explain more.
