Grow: The Jaynes Way

By: Shad James

Our mission is to build places, lead people, and grow the capabilities that will bring about a prosperous future.

If you’re not growing, you’re dying. But growth for its own sake isn’t necessarily a good thing. Sometimes we grow a little in unhealthy ways as our metabolism slows down. Cancer is even growth by definition.

At Jaynes, we strive to grow capabilities. To be capable is something we all aspire to. Many things can limit our capabilities: you may not have the right tools, the right experience, the right character, or the right knowledge. By growing these things, and expanding our capabilities, we grow. And as we grow those capabilities, we become more able to help our families and our communities bring about a prosperous future.

That’s The Jaynes Way.
