At Myriad Media, we aim to conduct our business by the same principles that we live our lives.
#1: Help People.
Myriad was built on making lasting differences in ourselves, our work and our communities. Teamwork, partnership and making a difference are more than just buzzwords to us, they’re business. Be a helpful and positive resource to our clients, vendors and co-workers.
#2: Live Your Story.
At Myriad, no one should ever feel like they have to act like someone they aren’t. In fact, our differences are what bring strength and uniqueness to our organization. Share your points of view with confidence and live your story authentically. The more you know yourself, the more patience and acceptance you have for other people’s points of view. Remain humble and build trust by recognizing and honoring those differences.
Genuine, trusting relationships require attentive listening and honest communication. Seek to understand different points of view and be willing to participate in new conversations. Ask for feedback and be open to what you hear. Form broad and diverse networks to empower your work with global perspective and depth; qualities that will be hard to come by if you remain tucked inside safely defined borders.
When creating, empathy is a powerful way to inspire your audience. Ask, listen and observe to know what matters. This will help inform the ideas, images and sounds that move them.
We will all be happier and more successful when we discover a sense of fun and improvisation in our work. Loosen up and rekindle your kidlike curiosity; play and experiment with new ways of doing things. Be a “yes &….” thinker.
Make things you love for the joy of creating. Seek out chances for a little adventure…or as we like to say, “go camping!” Remaining flexible, nimble and open-minded allows us to quickly adjust or change our behavior with a positive attitude.
#5: Take Ownership.
You may not be a business owner, but you can own your business. Myriad’s success is up to each of us. Ask the question, “how might we….?” Then act on it. Have an investment mindset. Hold yourself and others accountable for what is promised. Discover and create opportunities that will move the company forward and simultaneously strengthen the core.
#6: Imagine More.
We aspire to do bold and surprising work. To strive for something better than great, something greater than the best. Sounds lofty, right? It is.
Going big takes courage. Put yourself in unfamiliar settings. Constantly seek new ways to grow and be challenged. Going big means you will screw up at some point too. Just get back up, learn from the mistake and apply it. That’s how we make progress and get better. Celebrate success as a team and be there for one another when we take a fall.
