I get a lot of ideas and information about what’s going on in the workplace from the people I meet as I go about my business; doing my day-job as an organisational consultant and mediator. Friends and neigbours also tell me their stories. It is heartening that so many of these are positive, despite, or maybe because of, the troubled economic situation. But I also thought it would be a great idea to conduct a proper survey to find out more about reader’s experience of working with their colleagues, so I have created one.

In an earlier post I wrote about finding a ‘sacred place’. There have been some questions about what I meant by ‘sacred place’.
