THE LEGACY OF JP BEGINS WITH 4 LIKE MINDED FRIENDS SHARING STORIES AND DREAMS AROUND AN OLD KITCHEN TABLE.
To understand JP’s passion we need to begin with a story – the story of the elephant and the story of 4 friends. The legacy of JP begins with 4 like-minded friends sharing ideas and dreams around an old kitchen table. The business was born from friendship and mutual respect with its humble roots cemented in a dingy home office and an old, character-filled kitchen table and a unified desire to leave a legacy of ‘significance’ rather than ‘success’.
JP has grown from a JP Family to a JP Tribe, since the days of inspirational kitchen table talks. Our humble beginnings are, however, still alive in the VALUES represented by our logo and lived within JP. The ability to identify and unleash potential, together with the commitment to continually learn and improve, growing in wisdom (and not just knowledge). We strive to be congruent and act with integrity while consciously nurturing a sense community by being part of, taking co-responsibility for and nurturing the wellbeing of the JP team, the broader South African community and our clients’ world of work. We believe in living and working in a manner which exudes respect through being congruent while acknowledging and embracing the diverse views, values and beliefs of others.
THE STORY OF THE ELEPHANT
The elephant is a symbol of strength, integrity and potential which lies within the African continent. Within a herd, relationships based on respect and a strong sense of community, while nurturing the uniqueness and wellbeing of the individual. These values are strongly reflected in their ability to pass down knowledge from one generation to the next and in this way ensure that wisdom and intellignece are built up over time (growth). Within the business world our ability to develop and maintain relationships, which are based on integrity and respect and which nurture sharing, developing and applying individual and group wisdom, allows an organisation to not only ADAPT to, but to PROSPER within and throughout changing times.
PASSION FOR AFRICA
We have a great love and passion for Africa and increasingly for emerging markets. Within this context we have the freedom to utilise our intuition and creative spirit, engage in real conversations and co-create dynamic, sustainable solutions. We are constantly amazed and excited by the talent we identify and are proud to be playing our part in realising the potential inherent within our beautiful country and continent.
