Thanks for doing what you do

I am often asked why I keep the pace on doing what I do. My response is: “It is all about you.”  What sits behind this for me are the following ideas:

  • It is people like you who work in often challenging conditions with people who others have often given up on and written off.
  • It is people like you who turn up every day and keep the belief that change is possible, even in the face of significant resistance.
  • It is people like you who have the capacity to make a huge difference in the lives of those affected by the people you work with – the present and future people they interact with.
  • It is people like you who take a position on what is okay and not okay in terms of behaviour. You model what is okay and what is not okay.
  • It is people like you who are the true heroes in my mind. Don’t ever doubt the importance what you do.
  • You can be proud of the person you are, what you do and the colleagues who stand with you.
  • Without you the world would be a sadder place – people would be denied the opportunity to change.

Keep doing what you do, as you have one of the most important jobs in the world.

Our mission at HMA is “Working with passion and integrity to bring out the best in people.” You deserve the best in what we can offer. Therefore as long as I am around that is my commitment to you.
