Ready to Make Your
Culture Stronger and
Your Team More Connected in 2021?

Research proves a business with a strong culture is more resilient, and 11x more likely to bounceback in an economic crisis.  

If you’re a founder or people leader in a small business and you’re focussed on creating a stronger company culture after a period of extreme disruption, then I’d love to help you make that a reality.

Is your business feeling like this right now?

  • Your team is living in fear and are constantly seeking advice and guidance from you, which means you’re reaching burnout trying to keep everyone going, but you’re getting frustrated with them that they’re not feeling strong enough to make their own decisions. They are no longer taking risks or being innovative because they are afraid to fail, afraid to lose their jobs, and unsure of where the business is going.
  • You all feel totally disconnected from each other and the business after a long period apart. The sense of community you once had isn’t there right now, and you’re wondering how it will recover and how you can get people feeling supported and part of a team. The togetherness you desire feels like a long way off.
  • Due to unexpected redundancies, the pressure of enforced remote working, and trying to lead a team in an uncertain time, trust in your company culture is broken. Your team are frustrated with how you’ve handled things, and there is a distinct lack of trust causing conflict between team members.
  • You and your team are overwhelmed by the amount of change that has gone on, and you don’t know where to start or what to focus on first, meaning you’re just stalling on every new idea as you don’t know which one is right and which one will work. It feels like there is a mountain to climb, and you don’t know which step to take first.

Don’t panic, every business in the world has been shaken up and been left with scars due to the uncertainty and major disruptions experienced in 2020. Even if they aren’t shouting it out loud, every business has a culture pain right now. 

I’ve been working with a lot of clients who have been feeling this way, and I’ve loved helping them adapt to become stronger so they can accelerate out of 2020 with a motivated team that drives towards success.

Who is this culture
programme for?

Small businesses who have seen overwhelming change to their team dynamic, and are now trying to recover team morale.

Founders, directors and people leaders who want to come out of this crisis with a fresh new outlook, a more modern business, and people who are re-engaged with a business that feels relevant.

Start-ups who want to accelerate out of 2020 with a stronger business model and an exciting culture that is going to attract the best talent and enable growth.

Even after just one session with Lizzie, she quickly understood our business and where our strengths and weaknesses are. As a result, she provided some relevant, actionable recommendations to help improve our company culture and the processes surrounding it which will add a lot of value to us.

When starting a business we automatically skip to creating visions of what we’d like it to look and be like, bypassing the question of how we get there! Working closely with Lizzie at Liberty Mind has certainly helped us answer questions relating to company values and workplace flexibility. Lizzie’s has provided a really understanding approach to all of this, applying her knowledge and experience in a bespoke way that works for Pivot Search. Lizzie’s approach has helped up formulate company values that run consistently through the business and a flexible working structure that employees love!

The journey has been thoroughly enjoyable and informative; throughout Lizzie has ensured we understand the mechanics behind the decisions we make. The ongoing support is invaluable with Lizzie interested to hear progress updates and making herself available to discuss positive changes. Something Lizzie prepares you for well is that not everything works first time; she encourages constant reviews and making changes to get the formula right! 

All in all a really great, valuable experience working with Lizzie; the results have had a positive impact on the business internally and helped attract talent to come work for us!

Whenever I’ve had the pleasure of being on a panel with Lizzie, being interviewed by her, or even just listening to her podcast I always get the sense everything is possible, even in the face of titanic adversity. She fills me with enthusiasm and knowledge and off I go, happier, more productive and being grateful I was lucky enough to meet her. Nothing is impossible with Lizzie, and that’s a good thing because the only way you can create a better business culture is by changing the one you’ve got.

Lizzie’s talk to our delegates at our business networking event was truly engaging. It provided insight into how to improve employee engagement to bring the best out of your team and create a rewarding company culture. Company culture has become increasingly more important, particularly during the pandemic. Lizzie’s approach is refreshing and just what every business needs to enact culture change and create a better working environment.

What's covered . . .

The Culture Foundations is a 12-week LIVE online training programme for start-ups and small businesses looking to build a purpose-driven company culture. Here we've revealed the units to our online programme, but there will also be bonus sessions announced when you sign up.

Unit 1: The Power of Culture

We look at what a company culture truly is and how it has an impact not only on our people, but also on the way our business is perceived by our customers and suppliers. We connect to the power of culture.

Unit 3: Mission & Values

We help you discover your companies true mission and the values that connect your team to achieving the businesses core purpose. We delve into how and why your team should be part of building your values.

Unit 5: Communication Uncovered

How we communicate in our company culture can have a lasting impact. The smallest error can ignite a toxic culture. Therefore, in this week's unit we uncover communication in both verbal and non-verbal forms.

Unit 7: Building Best Selves

Learning and development within our company cultures is vital to fulfil our team and enable them to feel engaged in their work. We look at the individualistic approach to learning and development, and making it matter.

Unit 9: Shaping the Environment

In our company cultures we must build a space and place where our teams feel like they belong, and offers them the ultimate working environment. With hybrid workspaces now taking over, we delve into this complex problem and it's influence on our company culture.

Unit 11: Holistic Wellbeing

Wellbeing in the workplace is notoriously seen as physical and mental wellbeing, however in this week's unit we look at what other factors can have impacts on your teams ability to be fully present and well in the workplace. We present the holistic approach to wellbeing that makes it part of your culture, and not an after thought.

Unit 2: Mindset & Emotional Intelligence

We tackle why mindset and emotional intelligence are key hard skills we need in order to build a strong, authentic culture that connects people and purpose. We identify how our attitudes and behaviours hold influence.

Unit 4: Putting Words into Action

The day-to-day running of your company says just as much about your company culture as the words on your wall. On this week's unit we align values with your business processes and operations, so you're doing what you really mean.

Unit 6: New Age Leadership

How we need to lead now is different to how we're so often taught to lead. In this week's unit we get under the skin of modern leadership, and the expectations we now have of those who lead in culture.

Unit 8: The Ultimate Reward

Showing our team that their contribution and efforts are valued plays a role in their experience of the culture. In this week's unit we dive into recognition and reward, and what it means to our teams.

Unit 10: Perks That Work

In this week's session we demystify the work perk trends, and look at how pay transparency is increasing. We reveal how to build benefits that truly support your team and encompass your culture.

Unit 12: The Plan

Now that you know everything there is to know about building your culture, we give you a session on how to consistently audit your culture and build out your strategy to ensure you keep momentum on your company culture journey. This unit boxes it all off so you are ready to put ideas into action.

"When we start our companies, we’re never told about the importance of company culture. But as a business grows, it becomes the lifeblood that enables it to thrive.

I’ve worked first-hand with start-ups and small businesses across a range of sectors, helping them to build a culture that is not only unique to their business but which makes them resilient and adaptable.

This programme excites me so much, as it’s the culture 101 that I know so many companies wish they had when they had started. I’ve poured all of my knowledge about culture into this programme to make it accessible and available to purpose-driven people.”
