Introducing the POCA Model for Incremental ChangeĀ 

Uncategorized Jan 15, 2024


Small steps are foundational to creating lasting change, and that’s the main idea behind my POCA Model. And each of those small steps layers on one another little by little to create new habits. POCA is an acronym for Pause, Observe, Choose, and Act, and it also has another meaning—in Spanish, poca means “small thing.”

So, let’s look at how the POCA Model for Incremental Change can help leaders in your organization overcome generational conditioning to practice conscious leadership.
