the right treatment plan
Once Fiona’s gained a thorough understanding of your people and processes, The Culture Co. will prepare a treatment plan that’s unique to your business.
One of the most valuable things Fiona learnt from 25 years in business is the value of surrounding yourself with skilled people. Clients of The Culture Co. have access to those same skilled people through the extensive network of professionals Fiona calls on as required to implement the various components of your treatment plan.
‘If it ain’t broke, break it’ are words Fiona has always lived by. Driven and energised by change, she is renowned for her honest approach and ability to inspire those around her.
As a co-founder and former shareholder of People & Culture at Lysaght Consultants, Fiona helped to grow the land development firm from a fledgling start-up in 1995 into one of Tauranga’s most successful businesses. She and her fellow owners established an award-winning workplace culture over 25 years by trusting their gut instinct, genuinely caring for people and thinking outside the box. Recruiting people who epitomised the company’s values and culture is the key to Lysaght’s success and is an area in which Fiona excels.
“What’s so clear to me is that business is all about the people. If the people part is right, everything else will fall into place,” she says. “My approach is that every single member of staff has to have a say and be heard.”
She has honed her business, strategy, HR, culture and event management skills by studying part-time at the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic throughout her career, graduating with a Diploma in Business & Event Management in 2013. She has organised the annual national conference for Consulting Surveyors of New Zealand for 13 years and is a current board member of Tauranga’s Chamber of Commerce.
Since Lysaght made a physical move to Mount Maunganui in 2016, the company has grown exponentially and now employs 26 people. The firm won top honours for a medium-size workplace at the 2019 Humankind Employee Experience Awards in recognition of its outstanding culture, and Fiona’s energy and talents are now focussed on helping other businesses lift their game in this key area.
As a broad thinker with an open mind, Fiona possesses a high degree of emotional intelligence. Her natural ability to connect with people – and her extensive network of contacts – means she can help clients take whatever brave steps are required to develop an enviable team culture of their own.
