Marine Fabricator May/June 2021 - 41

Hard conversations are hard
When things didn't seem like they
could get any worse and we'd had
enough, I gathered our small team
together for a meeting with Justin.
It was an intervention of sorts, and
we leveled with him, expressing our
frustrations and demanding change.
Looking back on it, this meeting was
very one-sided, and the fact that he
managed to sit there and eat every bit of
it is a testament to Justin's character. It
wasn't a positive intervention. We called
him out on every mistake and issue that
we had with him. We didn't take any
ownership of our own mistakes. Still,
even with all its flaws, this meeting was
the first stage of our cultural upswing,
and it worked because of the way Justin
accepted this brutal feedback.

Real change takes soul
Change isn't easy and it often moves
more slowly than you want. I'd hoped
the intervention would immediately
turn things around, but it didn't.
We lost more team members before
we course-corrected and saw things
improve. Over the following year,
we spent time addressing our issues
and cleaning up unresolved drama.
Justin gradually began dedicating
more time to our team again. We got
intentional about our culture, and we
started doing the work we had only
been paying lip service to before.
We already had the mission statement,
the core values, the company trips to the
cabin, the morning meetings and the
vision of where we wanted to go. While
these critical elements were in place,
they had no soul. We were only going
through the motions.
Now, we managed to find our soul
hiding in one of our core values: " People
Matter. " It became the focus of all our
decisions, conversations and actions.
