Dr. Watson of Sherlock Holmes fame.

Dr. John Watson is the sidekick to the famous Sherlock Holmes and the subject of todays’ Movember 17th moustache cartoon.

Dr John Watson. I actually know a real John Watson, and he is every bit the rugged old War Horse and true gentleman that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle imagined him to be.

In the fictions, Dr. Watson is Sherlock Holme’s closest ally and partner in the great detective’s endeavours. Watson is rugged, dependable and always ready to pitch in and sort things out. The good doctor is often misguided and makes mistakes. The older man is a great counterpoint to Holmes’ incisive and observant character. Sort of like your trusty old hound dog

Dr. Watson reminds me of a typical Labrador. I tried to make my Dr. Watson look like an archetypal ‘dependable hound’. He is enthusiastic, reliable, tough, true and forthright.

I practice building nemonic triggers into characters as a means to create archetypes for Dave Snowden. He has developed a methodology to unravel and understand human behavioural and complexity. This is named ‘Cynefin‘. Dave or Sonja Blignaut can explain what this framework means. This framework I believe exposes complexities and designs interventions to help companies improve their situation and culture. If you recognise problems in your corporate culture you should give them a call.
