Navigating Change: Understanding Kübler’s Change Curve

Have you heard of the Kübler’s Change Curve? It’s a model that describes the stages of emotional reactions people go through when faced with change. As CoCo’s journey continues, we’re excited about the changes to our brand, structure and service offering. This got us thinking about change, and the relevance the change curve has in...Continue reading

When to say no

Let’s admit, we’ve all begrudgingly said ‘yes’ to something we may not agree with. Though, more often than not, reckless yeses can result in a hoard of missed commitments and unachievable expectations. The good thing is, we can clean up the workplace with one simple word: no. By sweeping the yes-man under the carpet, you...Continue reading

Weird, Wild & Wonderful Team Events

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to teamwork. In fact, it’s surprisingly easy to make a mess of your team event. Bonding activities can range from downright weird to inherently wonderful. Managers with a wild side (or Hunger Games fascination) can easily take their team-building exercise a bit too far… and we have proof!...Continue reading

Leadership teams in large organisations and solopreneurs alike understand the power of executive...Continue reading

The Disney Rule

What do Cinderella, Snow White, Moana and Elsa have in common? Absolutely nothing.   My niece told me that Disney princesses aren’t allowed to look at each other. I thought this couldn’t possibly be true, but to my dismay it might not be the ‘fake news’ I hoped for a fairy tale ending.   If...Continue reading

Choose self-compassion not self-criticism

I’m not a very kind person. Don’t worry, if we ever meet, I’ll be a little ray of sunshine to encourage, support and motivate you, but recently I’ve been asking myself why this rainbow doesn’t extend to me and I find myself under a dark cloud.   I’m not talking about depression or anxiety, just...Continue reading

What is the second curve, and why does it matter?

Late last year I met Jo Macsween, the famous haggis pioneer and now chairs a Vistage peer advisory group for business owners and CEOS in Central Scotland. As a new business owner, Jo’s decades of experience is invaluable to me. She has a canny knack of knowing when to introduce change to her business, and...Continue reading
