AND FOR THE REST OF THE STORY

At Zensho Agency, we say there’s no such thing as work-life balance because it’s all one. That’s especially true for Glen, who’s about the purest recruiter you’re likely to meet. He was born and raised in Kaohsiung, which, despite being Taiwan’s second-largest city, has a towny atmosphere, where people’s smiles are as warm as the weather, and even restaurant food has a home-cooked taste. Glen’s parents both work in sales, and instilled in him a love of commerce and the kind of social flexibility that only comes from daily communion with others. They sent him to holiday camps to reinforce the message. Then, just to make sure, they sent him to Ohio. Along the way he’d visited Japan and loved it, so after graduation when jobs were scarce at home and in the US, he packed his bags for Tokyo. Following a brief and uninspiring stint in corporate, Glen discovered the executive search profession and right then felt his soul go supernova. To interact with and support others, studying industries and organizations in a constant state of passion and self-improvement – this is what he was born to do. And like his hero author David Goggins in the classic “Can’t Hurt Me,” he was going to give it not 40 but 100 percent. Glen likes sports. The outdoors. The gym. Likes Them. But as far as needs go, if you were to rank his priorities, you’d find food and oxygen come in a distant second and third to his business art. Recruitment is life.

Values: A message to our awesome tribe

Years from now, you may not remember the particulars of deals you closed at Zensho (or what the returns were). You will remember your colleagues and how it felt to work with them. The imprint you left on the world.

We invited you to join our tribe because you impressed us as someone who shares values intrinsic to our culture. But just to ensure we’re totally on the same page, here they are, spelled out in black and white and trimmed in our corporate colors.

Freedom is Zensho’s central pillar. Beyond the mere state of being free, for us the word carries with it a sense of obligation: “Freedom to…” What follows should define you as a person. Of course, to provide your business community with amazing service, but also to engage and give back to the world. And that’s where Autonomy comes in. Unlike the general implications of self-rule, ours leads not to detachment but to a broad and radical sense of interconnectivity. One that enables each of us to commune with others in infinite ways. Together, these two values empower you like nothing else on earth, and they’re here waiting for you.

So, what do we ask in return?

Transparency means not only having open books, but being one yourself. No secrets or ulterior agendas. It is to share personal and industry information without seeking to leverage it for profit or motivate others in any way. Its cousin, Clarity, is about including precision and context in the communication process. At Zensho, we always try to anticipate the details a fellow partner might need and supply them up front.

Which leads us to…

Collaboration. That is, to cooperate meaningfully. Because only through recognizing individual strengths can we thrive as a whole. For us, collaboration requires presence as we listen and respond, evolving toward a collective goal represented by the name of our charity initiative: Ayni (reciprocity). This can’t exist without Collegiality. How we care for each other and the tribe as a whole, share both opportunity and responsibility with open hearts – that’s what empowers us to excel as a firm.

With these six in place, our seventh value happens all by itself.

Harmony. When your environment manifests balance between all people and things – even forces that oppose each other – life just flows. Living completely becomes a state of being. After all, that’s the very meaning of Zensho.
