INCLUSION | MENTAL HEALTH | TALENT DEVELOPMENT
TLC Lions partner with companies to create more empathetic, inclusive and productive workplaces. We have designed three unique Series to help you achieve this based on our knowledge from supporting over 200 multinational organisations globally. Each Series shares the real-life stories of our carefully selected Lions (storytellers) – all of whom are ordinary people with extraordinary stories. Through sharing their journeys, challenges and practical tips, our Lions bring the human back into the workplace and empower your employees to share their own stories with confidence. We understand everyone learns differently and every organisation has their own distinctive strategy. That is why all of our work is tailored to your industry, challenges and strategy. Each Series brings topics to life in two ways:
EVENTS + ONLINE CONTENT
Your Unique Series
1 - Understanding your Needs
One of our TLC Lions Partnerships Managers will arrange a meeting to understand your organisation’s unique strategy around Inclusion, Mental Health and/or Talent Development and bring our support to life.
2 - Recommending your Series
Following the initial meeting, your Partnerships Manager will work with our strategy team to tailor and recommend one or more of our three Series to address your specific needs and challenges.
3 - A Strategic Conversation
Once approved, our Operations and Strategy Team will arrange a strategic meeting to advise on the best way to roll out your tailored Series. This includes ideas for employee engagement and sharing best practices from other industries.
4 - Our Tailored Approach
Your chosen Lions (speakers) will be coached ahead of each speaker event so their messaging, content and delivery addresses your organisation’s specific objectives. Our advisory members include members of Harvard & MIT who share their expertise to ensure our speakers bring the latest knowledge and developments to their sessions.
5 - Measuring the Impact
After every speaker event and content transfer, a feedback meeting and survey is arranged to quality check and ensure your specific needs and challenges are being addressed. Feedback is everything. Following each speaker session or content transfer, we pause, reflect and implement any changes for you. We provide quantitative and qualitative feedback in our expertly designed surveys on the impact at your organisation.
The Power of Storytelling
Stories have the power to influence, inspire, teach and strengthen social bonds that is why they have been used to pass wisdom for almost as long as humans have been around. There is endless scientific research outlining the power of storytelling to ignite emotion, build empathy and evoke change seeking behaviours in employees. At TLC Lions we take pride in using a storytelling approach to land and embed some of the most important messages for your organisation and its success.

Storytelling releases oxytocin in the brain i.e. the empathy hormone which helps people bond. (Harvard Business Review)
Rise in Productivity
78% of employees said they’d be more productive if they received more empathy at work. (Businessolver Survey)
Novartis is a Swiss multinational pharmaceutical company based in Basel, Switzerland. They have approximately 108,000 associates based in 140+ countries.
We are working closely with their Global People Health team to embed Novartis’s values and commitment to mental wellbeing for their global associates. They chose Series 1 with 4 speakers and licensed the online content for 12 months, subtitled in all 8 languages. Each speaker session has been led by a different Lion and tailored to include Novartis’s key values, which are to inspire, spark curiosity and promote equality amongst their associates.
The events have all been virtual due to COVID but the formats have varied. For example, the first event was only for their leaders and the format was a fireside chat wit one of our Lions (speakers). The second event was for all their global employees as part of their Curiosity Month. This session was divided into two parts, first the Lion (speaker) shared his story which was then followed by a Q&A.
