Cockell McArthur-Blair Consulting (CMBC) specializes in collaboratively designing strategies for individuals, groups and organizations to create sustainable and positive change. The foundation of our work is lifting up the wisdom found in all people to create more appreciative living and working together.
As consultants and facilitators, Joan McArthur-Blair and Jeanie Cockell work in the areas of planning, team development, leadership growth, organizational change and innovation. As authors and speakers, we bring our unique view of leadership and life.

In 2012 Joan and Jeanie published Appreciative Inquiry In Higher Education: A transformative Force. People are saying…”a magical book for applying appreciative inquiry;” “a must read text for administrators, faculty, staff and students in higher education;” “inspires those of us in the field.”
CMBC works with clients to assess their needs and then designs appropriate strategies to meet these needs. We facilitate processes that generate safe environments where people can take risks to talk openly and honestly with each other in order to learn and grow.
Our services focus on using Appreciative Inquiry and other strengths based solutions to planning, team development, process facilitation, coaching and temporary executive services.
