Improving Individual and Organizational Performance
Shawn spent the first two decades of his career leading a variety of teams across six different industries and in roles that included Operations, Project Management, Sales, and Supply Chain Management. Throughout these experiences he learned exactly what it takes to build a strong and productive team that would consistently deliver results. Interestingly it wasn’t great leadership, it was employee empowerment and autonomy.
In 2009, with the goal of helping CEOs and Executives of mid-market companies tap into and capitalize on collaboration between their customers, employees, and suppliers, he launched Casemore and Co Inc.
Today as a consultant, speaker, and author he invests significant time studying top performing organizations around the world, consulting with and advising CEOs on how to build more empowered organizations in order to dramatically improve performance, create a compelling competitive advantage, and maximize profits.
Shawn has worked with Fortune 500 companies such as CN Rail, Tim Hortons, and Pepsi Co, however he invests the majority of his time working with some of the fastest growing and dynamic mid-market companies including Bellwyck Packaging, Gerson and Gerson Incorporated, and Saje Natural Wellness. He has also worked with franchise organizations such as Winmar Corporation and various associations that include Electricity Distributors Association and Chartered Professional Accountants.
He typically partners with the CEO, President, COO or General Manager, helping them with all aspects related to improving organizational performance including:
- Strategy formulation.
- Leadership development.
- Process optimization.
- Employee autonomy and empowerment.
- Customer and client engagement.
Much of his work can be found in his recently released book from McGraw Hill entitled “Operational Empowerment: Collaborate, Innovate, and Engage to Beat the Competition”.
Despite a hectic travel schedule across North America, Shawn enjoys spending time with his wife Julie and their two young boys in the small town just north of Toronto, Ontario.
In his free time he enjoy cross-fit, golfing, and riding an assortment of fun, albeit dangerous, motorized vehicles.
