Kokoro (Ko Ko Ro) is a Japanese word that translates into English as the connection of heart, mind, and spirit. This theme of relationship is what guides our work.
We are passionate about improving the well-being of individuals, teams and organisations and strengthening communities.
We offer organisations bespoke training, facilitation, and consultancy services.
We have expertise in capacity building, program design, implementation and evaluation, workshop design and facilitation, and co-design frameworks.
We understand how the brain works, develops, changes and is impacted by stress, adversity, and trauma. We, therefore, understand the importance of creating safe spaces for community consultation, workshops, training, and co-design processes, so everyone feels safe, valued and able to contribute.
We understand and are sensitive to the impacts and dynamics of power, implicit bias (including our own), and systemic oppression in all our work.
We do this through co-design, collaborative decision making and empowering and supporting communities to find solutions to lead their own change processes and projects.
We work hard to create inclusive environments, that respect human rights, celebrate diversity and allow for safe & meaningful participation.
We work hard not to assume, instead, we, clarify meaning by asking thoughtful questions.
We aim to leave people with more skills than when we started working together.
