Why inspirations count…

SOME OF MY INSPIRATIONS

I first read this tapestry as a boy in my grandmother’s house and these words
have always resonated with me.

My father shared many stories about his experiences during his long working career.
Many about were appreciating joyfulness and humor in everyday situations.
Many related to a strong sense of right and wrong and treating people fairly
However, the underlying theme was the importance of always showing helpfulness and kindness.
My father’s empathetic approach is one of my inspirations for starting Mercury Jam
and the tapestry inspired the “Contract of Kindness”

I’ve always believed that people work for people.
When they feel secure and appreciated, they simply perform better.

There is a perception that fast-paced processes and work cultures lead to more risk taking.

In fact, it’s the opposite good leaders need to create a sense of calm and safety to give people the courage to take risks.

People are the single most important asset in any brand company or agency.

Before your product or your service, it’s your people. Without them nothing happens,
you don’t have a company, just a name or an idea.

Companies need to refocus their commitment to their people to show kindness,
empathy and understanding.

It’s how you inspire people and build loyalty.

Loyalty and retention increases, burnout and absenteeism are reduced.
When your people perform better your business performs better.

Grow your people, grow your brand.
