ASK ME ABOUT

How washing dishes can up your Japanese skills, my weakness for puppy videos, and why I know seven ways to make spaghetti carbonara.

AND FOR THE REST OF THE STORY

Kerry’s got a thing for Marvel’s Avengers. And no wonder. Our man from Xinjiang has been impressing people with his own feats of strength and agility ever since leaving his beloved hometown to explore Japan, the US, and the world. His real-life heroes tell you even more about the kind of guy he is. David Goggins, Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone and James Allen are all models of guts, ingenuity and positive thinking, but Kerry didn’t just read their books: he followed their lead, rising from raw recruit to senior recruiter in just five years. He makes a convincing argument for karma, too. With no interest besides helping others achieve their goals, Kerry has for years been sharing free career wisdom via online forums, and this, combined with his exceptional placement skills, has earned him widespread respect in the recruitment industry. Indeed, this is what makes him spring into action every morning: the chance to improve someone else’s life. “I’m always curious about what more can I do,” he says. “Zensho provides the balance, freedom, and discipline required to become a successful solopreneur.” An avid chef, Kerry can wow you with as many different cuisines as there are days of the week. We’re still figuring out the best color scheme for his costume, but really, Kerryman doesn’t need one to work wonders on this planet.

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.
