FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Culture Consultancy

How long will you work with our company?

This all depends on what is required for your business. During our discovery meeting, we will sit and discuss what you’re looking for from your company culture and the areas which need to be structured in order to provide this. For this, an estimated time frame can be given.

How often will you consult with us?

Again, this all depends on how much support you require. Once we have established your needs in a discovery meeting, we can then decide on time and frequency that consultation is required.

Is there a set method to the culture that you embed?

Absolutely not. I believe in creating company cultures that are unique to the business. This isn’t a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Liberty Mind provides a bespoke culture consultancy so that together we can create an environment that works with the true purpose of the company’s values, and aligns that with the team.

Is the work that you do with our company confidential?

All work carried out by Liberty Mind is confidential and will remain so. You can be assured that all elements discussed around your company, employees, and culture is strictly confidential and will not be shared with individuals or third parties.

We already have someone that plans culture activities, so what’s the benefit of bringing on Liberty Mind?

While many companies have a team member that organises the culture days or the fun activities the team do, Liberty Mind goes beyond this by ensuring that the company’s purpose and vision are followed through in all areas of the environment.

Liberty Mind will help you to define your own recruitment processes, onboarding processes, learning and development structures, and ensure your physical environment speaks volumes.

It’s not just about arranging ‘fun stuff’, it’s about creating a culture that continues to thrive when there isn’t the ‘fun stuff’.

Workshops

How long are the workshops?

Each workshop is generally 4 hours long with a short 15-minute break in between.

This is due to the practical exercises that take place.

As each workshop has its own activities where team members must take part.

Where do the workshops take place?

The workshops take place onsite in your office. However, should you not have the space available, Liberty Mind can source space on your behalf to ensure the workshop is carried out in a safe and comfortable environment.

Can we hold the workshop offsite?

Yes, Liberty Mind can arrange any of the workshops offsite, in a convenient location to you and your team should you require it. For example, the workshop can take place as part of a team building day at a rural location, or within a more formal space.

Will we be given resources after the workshop?

Yes, each of the workshops comes with its own PDF resource which each team member will receive once they have completed the day. These will be either emailed individually or to the team leader. Whichever is preferred.

Can anyone attend the workshop?

Each of these workshops is aimed to be suitable for all individuals. There is no differentiation about roles when these workshops take place, and the more people that attend the bigger impact it will have. It is ideal if everyone within the company, CEO to intern attends.

1-2-1 Workplace Mentoring

Are the 121 sessions confidential?

Absolutely! Each part of the 121 is confidential to ensure peace-of-mind to all individuals taking part in the session. This allows people to be completely open and honest about what they’re going through, without fear that there are going to be repercussions.

If anything is expressed during the 121 that may bring harm to other individuals or the business it will be shared only with the director.

How often does the 121 mentoring take place?

Each 121 takes place on a monthly basis. This allows for real progression to be implemented and people to grow both personally and professionally.

Is there a recommended minimum amount of sessions for 121 mentoring?

The minimum amount of months to implement 121s would be 3 months, as this is where true change can occur. However, it’s highly recommended that 6 months is a minimum, as both trust, and honesty needs to be established before growth can take place.

How long is each 121 session?

Each 121 session is 1 hour long. This provides some quality time for people to relax and truly open-up.

Where is the 121 mentoring held?

The 121s are held onsite in a private area, away from other team members. People need to feel, safe and secure in what they wish to share.

Do I have to let you know about any concerns surrounding my employees?

Before any 121 mentoring takes place, it is your duty of care to advise me of any employees issues, or of any individuals who have a criminal record or a violent tendency.

What impact will 121 mentoring have on my employees?

121 mentoring will bring about an incredible amount of benefits to your employees. Providing them with confidence in their roles, supporting their mental health, providing them with a soundboard for any real-life issues they may be facing, and giving them some achievable targets to implement in both their professional and personal lives.

I’m concerned you will make my employees leave or turn then against me?

This is an understandable concern as you’re trusting a third party to talk to your employees, however, character assassination is not what 121 mentoring is for. If there is already toxic behaviour in the company culture, 121 mentoring can provide an antidote to improve communication so that people can talk to colleagues about concerns.

121 mentoring is beneficial for many businesses, as it improves retention and increases happiness. Without 121 mentoring, employees can leave and become toxic in bad-mouthing a company due to its poor ethics.

How is information stored about each person?

Any notes taken during the session are saved with Liberty Mind on a secure cloud-based system. Once the contract is ended with the company, Liberty Mind will remove all information about the individuals.
