The meaning of JERA, pronounced “yare-ah,” is clouded by over a thousand years of history, yet it retains a strong and consistent thread of authenticity and relevance. JERA is rooted in a simpler, agrarian society; yet, there are many lessons to be learned from this ancient symbol and its application in today’s ever changing world. These lessons include:
- There is a time and a place for reaping rewards from seeds sown in the past, and
- One may anticipate a bountiful harvest as a result of taking planful and deliberate action.
These interpretations resonate deeply with us both personally and professionally. Acknowledging this led us to founding, creating and naming – JERA Partnerships. Our own journey has brought us to a place where we are uniquely positioned to serve others by leveraging our experience, talent and skill in a new way. We’ve spent the past year taking “planful and deliberate” action to build a robust toolbox we can use in bringing customized solutions to our clients. We are both inspired and humbled by the opportunities that lie ahead!
Whether you are an individual trying to “figure it all out” or a leader of a team or organization in a complex, demanding environment– we believe that the principles of JERA can be a source of wisdom and understanding in helping navigate your way to greater fulfillment and success. Doing the right things, at the right time for the right reasons—will yield an “abundant harvest.”
