Warren Shepell – President/Consultant
  Though all of his services and endeavors at WS Web Stars, he applies the highest regard and respect for people, human rights, effective interpersonal communications, and contributing to productive workplaces where employees feel safe and enjoy being at their workplace.  

I consult with senior management and provides communication training between management and employees focusing on civility and respect, and harassment prevention. I also do one-on-one executive coaching with valued executives whose interpersonal skills have rough edges and are disruptive in their interpersonal style in the workplace. I write regularly in key HR magazines on civility, respect, and harassment prevention, especially sexual harassment in the workplace and present at Conferences on these topics. Finally, I consult with Presidents on HR matters and people decisions.

I am at my best in contributing to respectful communications among employees in workplaces and providing input on improving the mental health of employees.

I am a well-recognized pioneer in the field of Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) and well-being in the workplace, among family members, couples, and individuals. In 1979, I started, developed, and ran Warren Shepell Consultants Corp/Warren Shepell-The EAP Professionals/Les Consultants Shepell Ltee. I grew my EAP firm to an employee group of 460 full time and 1500 part time employees and provided EAPs to over 2,000 organizations (small, mid-sized, and large) covering over 4 million employees. I sold the Company in 2005. I brought the concept of mental health counselling to the mainstream population.

In addition to my EAP experience I worked as an Industrial Psychologist in Executive Career Counselling, Management Consulting in Human Relations, Management Issues, and Management Development. I also consulted as a Career Counsellor with the graduating classes of most of the private high schools in Ontario.

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a PhD in Counseling and Clinical Psychology; a Master’s degree in Industrial Psychology from the University of Waterloo; and a BA majoring in Psychology from the University of Manitoba.

Warren Shepell brings heart, sensitivity and appreciation for the uniqueness found among people in their journey in life. "Each of us has a heart, a soul, and feelings. Each of us desires to be wanted, to be appreciated, and each of us enjoys work when it is satisfying and rewarding and the workplace is respecting."
