Jan Kelly's Personal Business Values
Jan's purpose is to assist people to their potential. Her prime
focus is to enhance this latent talent and add value of another's
daily endeavours. She passionately values:
Business Context: People
Building thriving relationships
Rust never sleeps (Neil Young)
Sense of Belonging: We are all in the business of Communication.
Inspire others with personal conviction, generosity and fairness.
Let nothing that undermines our vision slip through to the Keeper.
Cynical one-liners damage relationships, destroy culture and erode
respect. They also chip away at our reputation. Have a heightened
awareness for group values, to foster functional dynamics.
Successful partnerships are never based on dominance and
submissiveness but on genuine equality. Our role: Assist others to
feel bigger for longer.
Business Context: Performance
Improving business acumen
Track record is everything (Warren Buffet)
Sense of Direction: Destiny is determined by our daily agenda.
We are how we spend our time! When we are clear on our vision and
values, our daily decisions become simple. 'Maximum strategic gain'
requires a laser-beam focus on where we can have the greatest
impact. Transparency and openness will identify mistakes quickly.
Being responsible for our decisions accelerates learning. Better an
imperfect idea be implemented by passionate people, than implement
the perfect idea by people who don't care!
Business Context: Position
Growing market share
Know the difference between a king and a pawn
Sense of Purpose: Growing our business requires we have a
heightened awareness of what really matters for the long-term.
Strong business acumen begins with daily conversations about
Purpose, with initiatives that build brand and market reputation.
These are our 'Kings and Queens'. Focus energy on future growth
opportunities, not past failures. Discerning opportunities,
seamless innovation and integrity is King. Give away the Pawns, but
never give away the King!
