213 Innovation Takes Courage with Dr Lizzy Bernthal

After serving 25 years as a healthcare professional in the British Army (Lt Col) with a PhD in psychological wellbeing, Dr Lizzy Bernthal has a new mission in life; to eliminate toxic leadership from the workplace. Showing people how to overcome their inner war zone, Lizzy is empowering those who lack confidence or are too scared to speak up or show up. Creating ripples of positive change, believing that failure is purely feedback and encouraging people to become powerful and purposeful leaders, Lizzy demonstrates that innovation takes courage.



“What does integrity really mean? Are you living in integrity? What does innovation mean? You cannot have innovation without courage because innovation by definition is a risk. In order to take a risk, that takes courage.”

She supports leaders to stand tall, rediscover their voice to own their awesomeness so they can soar.  She designs and delivers transformational programmes for businesses to find their purpose, embed their values to create an innovative, collaborative, inclusive culture to enhance resilience and leadership.
