Culture Consultancy

How long will you work with our company?

This will be discussed during your discovery meeting. Some organisations need support with each of the elements of company culture, while others need help with a few.

Our company culture consultancy program takes place over nine sessions. Each session is 2-3 hours long depending on the discussions we have around the core elements of company culture.

Ideally these sessions should be spread across a few weeks as you will be given tasks to complete before we move onto the next session. Therefore the consultancy could take a month or a few months.

We also provide shorter sessions for those who only need help with particular areas of their company culture.

How long will you work with our company?

This all depends on the support you require, which will be discussed during our discovery meeting.

Our company culture program takes place over nine sessions. Each session is 2-3 hours long depending on the discussions we have around the core elements of company culture.

Ideally these sessions should be spread across a few weeks as you will be given tasks to complete before we move onto the next session. Therefore the consultancy could take a month or a few months.

Alternatively, if it’s found that there are only a few areas that you need help with, this could take place over a few weeks.

How often will you consult with us?

Our days of consultancy all depend on your culture requirements.

If you decide to have a full culture strategy we will consult with you for a total of nine sessions of 2-3 hours. Once these sessions are over there will be check-ins from us to ensure everything is remaining on track.

The company culture consultancy can vary depending on how proactive your organisation is with implementing culture change.

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

We take a bespoke approach to company culture. From our discovery meeting, we will identify the key areas where you require support, and outline a strategy of how we can help you achieve your culture goals.

We can help you with a set area, and provide adhoc consultancy, or for a full update and improvement we follow the nine sessions to cover each area of company culture.

We do not embed the same culture method with every organisation.

Our structured company culture program has been developed to help organisations enhance their company culture in the most effective way possible. Only by following this program can we provide organisations with Liberty Mind accreditation.

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.

What is the Liberty Mind Accreditation?

When you have completed the company culture program by Liberty Mind you will be accredited to have a unique company culture that you have proven to improve.

This accreditation can go on your website to show potential employees and customers that you take a considered approach to your company culture, and that you have invested in building a unique culture for your organisation.

An accreditation from Liberty Mind can truly support your organisation in having a competitive edge.

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 business.

Through our culture consultancy we work alongside HR and leadership to build a strong company culture.

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’.

1-2-1 Workplace Mentoring

Are the 121 mentoring sessions confidential?

Each mentoring session is relayed back to the leader in charge of learning and development within the organisation. This could be the HR Manager or Managing Director.

At the end of each mentoring session they will be provided with a brief overview of how the session went and if there are any major issues to be identified.

How often does the 121 mentoring take place?

Each 121 mentoring session 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 mentoring session?

Each 121 mentoring session is 1 hour long. This provides some quality time for people to open up and gain practical support.

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.

Workplace Mental Health

Is workplace mental health a form of counselling?

The workplace mental health sessions are not counselling or any form of therapy. It is also not mentoring or traditional workplace coaching.

The workplace mental health is simply a session where anyone can start a conversation about their mental health in a safe, and non-judgemental space.

Are the sessions confidential?

Completely confidential and nothing is ever fedback to the business.

Should further assistance be required that is outside the remit of what Liberty Mind can offer, a list of additional free national services will be provided.

How does the workplace mental health session work?

Prior to the day that we come to your workplace, we send a booking form to your company where employees book a slot with the coach.

Do I need to have a mental health problem to attend a session?

Absolutely not! Even when we’re in good mental health it can be beneficial to talk about things that might be bothering us so that we can stop them evolving into bigger problems later on.

If you do have a problem to talk through then that’s fine, and we can support you through this.

Can anyone attend a session?

Yes, and we recommend that all team members take some time to attend a session, even if they’re feeling in good spirits.

What do you talk about in the session?

Anything that’s on your mind! Even if there’s nothing specific you want to talk about, just be open to having a good chat. If you’re unsure of what to say, then say just that. Something might emerge, or you may end up just having a good conversation.

What should I expect to get out of this workplace mental health session?

These sessions are not a quick fix that will instantly solve all of your problems.

Sometimes things may take a little while to resolve.

Instead, you can expect to become more aware of how you are feeling, and get an opportunity to reflect on different thoughts.

Questions will be asked to get to know you better, but nothing will be asked to make you feel uncomfortable.

Will I be analysed during the session?

No, there is no analysis or assessment of any kind in these sessions. They are simply an open space for you to talk freely.

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.

What is the coach going to be like?

Simply a friendly face who will want to get to know you. Expect a non-judgemental atmosphere and someone who just wants to help you figure it all out.

Are sessions mandatory?

Absolutely not. For the first session, we encourage everyone within the organisation to book a slot so they get to meet the coach and know the help is there is ever they need it.

From then on, sessions are there for when you simply need to talk.

How often will these sessions take place?

Sessions will be available to your organisation every month. Simply book in how many months you would like to run sessions. We often recommend trialing 3 months to see how your team get on with it.

What should I do after a session?

As the sessions may sometimes be quite heavy on the brain, we recommend you take a walk, have a drink or just take a moment. It’s best to not go straight back into work, as this can lead to some minor tiredness.

Don’t forget, you’ve just put your mind through a workout, so let it rest before you ask it to go again.

What if I need more help?

If more help is required than what Liberty Mind can provide during the session, guidance is given on how individuals should approach their GP or another national service. We will work with each person to find a solution that is best for them.

What are the benefits of workplace mental health sessions?

There are more benefits to these mental health sessions than we could possibly list. But by providing your team with support at work it can go a long way in helping people who may not feel they can go to someone, which ultimately means saving lives.

At Liberty Mind, we believe in creating happier and healthier working environments, so that people can bring their full selves to work.

Soft Skills Workshops

How long are the soft skill workshops?

Each workshop is generally 3-4 hours long with a short 15-minute break in between.

This is due to the practical exercises that take place, and the discussions that are generated.

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 booklet which each team member will receive once they have completed the day. These will be given individually or to the team leader. Whichever is preferred.

Can anyone attend the soft skills workshop?

Each of these soft skills workshops are 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.
