Creating space for change
We can’t see far if we are stuck in the middle. Especially if we are worn down by the daily grind, immersed in tactical issues and the relentless pressure to keep going because others depend on us.
Here’s the thing, if we don’t step out of the traffic – metaphorically speaking – and pause to get our breath back, then making sense of where we are and having the confidence to create a new path will be increasingly challenging.
It doesn’t have to be like this. You are not a machine, and you do care about the impact you want to create in your world. And this is the space where ideas can flourish.
As humans, being seen and heard through healthy conversations is a powerful way of giving air to the important things that can enable this shift. Surfacing perspectives and mindsets that can trip us up, or spark curiosity, creativity and the courage to do things differently, together.
How can we help?
Waterside conversations are about creating space for you to hear yourself and each other:
- Individuals: one-off sessions or an ongoing programme. Suitable for individual leaders, creative pioneers and entrepreneurs.
- Teams: individually designed session or series of conversations to enable you to move from where you are to where you want to go, together
- Community: gathering people together for a specific conversation or to develop an emerging ecosystem for change and innovation
- Thinking partner: when you need someone to travel with you as a critical friend, who can help you see more widely and test out the implications of your ideas in real-time.
Currently, all of our work is remote, via Zoom, and as restrictions allow we will also be able to offer in-person conversations, especially here at The Waterside. Expected Spring 2021.
Let’s start by talking.
