“We will make them fully conscious of any stress, pain or aggravation their business is causing them through a vastly different light. To meet their internal saboteur, learn how to deal with them, and fall in love with your business again.”
Shane believes that company culture “isn’t something that just happens, it’s something that has to be smithed – heated up and pounded on with a hammer.”
CultureSmith teaches businesses how to forge engagement with employees and clients through a three-step process:
Intake – Building a culture based on a company’s values, and examining its competence based on the value proposition, how well do your present and future employees fit in?
Interaction – Examining personalities, emotional and behavioural triggers in the workplace, and how they impact the success of the company and individual.
Investment – Measuring performance and potential to help determine whether a relationship (employees or clients) are worth investing into.
Shane founded CultureSmith two years ago as the result of a snowball of events. Shane had worked in the recruiting industry for well over a decade, both with other major companies and his own firm, until the economic downturn nearly decimated the industry.
“My firm was okay, but the companies that called us to hire people were really hurting,” Shane recalls.
When speaking to these business owners, Shane noticed they were facing similar issues with disengagement that he, too, experienced at work. “I became a junky for anything related to psychology, executive leadership, and lean business principles and cobbled together this Frankenstein’s Monster of an engagement system for ourselves.”
This engagement system became the basis of CultureSmith six months later, and Shane has plans for “scaling as rapidly as we can” in the new year.
“The opposites of ‘hard’ are ‘easy’ and ‘simple.’ What we are doing is incredibly simple. But it is not easy. It’s one of those things that takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master.”
