People are our product
Our practitioners are focused on people and relationships, facilitating and crafting genuine engagements with unique tools and skills at hand. Taking into consideration the individualities of our clients’ teams, we prepare for days, weeks, and months for our Co-Design events so our clients can just show up and get months of work done in days, and years of work done in months.
We leverage data-driven insight
Recoder is Watershed’s digital platform that contains a suite of applications to map social networks, explore values-based insight, and engineer new patterns of conversation.
Visualizing connections establishes communication patterns and accelerates information flow.
Mapping networks identifies connectors, motivators, and sources.
Exploring values within an organization leads to understanding and better conversations.
Our collaborative spaces foster transformation
We carefully consider the backdrop where all client work takes place. How people are arranged and the materials that surround them either facilitate trust, intimacy and creative problem solving, or they inhibit it.
Peter Block on collaborative living
“Invitation is not only a step in bringing people together, it is also a fundamental way of being in a community. It manifests the willingness to live in a collaborative way. This means that a future can be created without having to force or sell it or barter for it. When we believe that barter or subtle coercion is necessary, we are operating out of a context of scarcity and self-interest, the core currencies of the economist.”
