Empowerment Expert and Author

Shawn Casemore

Shawn Casemore 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 that made the difference.

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, Shawn launched Casemore and Co Inc.

Today as a consultant, speaker, and author Shawn invests significant time studying top performing organizations around the world, consulting with and advising CEOs on how to build a more empowered organization 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 Horton’s, 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.

Despite a hectic travel schedule across North America, he enjoys spending time with his wife Julie and their two young boys in a small town just North of Toronto, Ontario.

In his free time he enjoys cross-fit, golfing, and riding an assortment of fun, albeit dangerous, motorized vehicles.

    Topics 
  1. Empowering Performance Through People

    Since the industrial revolution we’ve built companies using an archaic model that originated in the military. Consider for example that the structure, strategy and operation of most organizations today is built around a top­down approach to motivating and managing employees. Unfortunately unless you are in the military, this inverted approach to operating a business is nothing more than a path to diminishing profits and lack­luster performance

  2. Empowering and Motivating Multi­generational Workforce

    Never before have we been faced with such generational diversity in the workplace. With the number of millennials in North America joining the workplace soon to surpass Generation X and Baby Boomers, we are poised for a distinct shift (or collision!) in how we interact, communicate, and work.

  3. Empowering Customers: Capitalizing on Connections to Maximize Customer Value

    Every client, customer, and member interacts with an organization or association through multiple channels. It is through these interactions that customers form their impression of whether the organization adds value, and the various forms within which they can receive that value. It is for this very reason that every conversation that our employees, board members and contractors have counts.

  4. Empowering Leader: Increasing Employee Morale and Productivity

    Leadership can be a daunting task. Balancing our own business and personal objectives while managing a team of unique individuals can be draining mentally and emotionally. With little time available to spend with staff, the real question becomes how can we get staff to do more, care more, and be present?

  5. Empowering Your Brand: Building and Sustaining Market Distinction

    Getting the most out of an employee is the single greatest challenge any CEO or business owner faces. Despite the best of intentions and effort, our ability to engage, motivate and manage employees can be overly complex and time consuming.

  6. Self-Empowerment: Developing Resolve, Resilience and the Drive to Thrive

    In today’s fast paced, high stress work environments it’s crucial to be clear on what success looks like. Achieving this clarity results from building our resolve, resilience and strengthening our internal drive. Although developing these characteristics is unique and different for everyone, there are key distinctions in how they are developed that are grounded in self­empowerment. In this talk we discuss the origin of stresses in today’s workplace, and introduce proven methods to develop resolve, resilience and to create an internal drive that will propel us beyond our day­to­day issues formulating a clear vision and path to our desired future.
