OPERATING PHILOSOPHY

Our concept for Leora was born from three core beliefs that have guided our careers to date:

  1. Our clients deserve our loyalty, our best efforts, our commitment and our creative enthusiasm. We do not gossip or complain about our clients. We tell our clients early on if we don't know or understand something. We learn best when we listen. We are as honest as we know how with our clients but we also understand the value of diplomacy and discretion.
  2. Our work product is what we leave behind, the permanent record for each assignment. There is no such thing as "good enough" for us. Every piece of work we produce we strive to make as well written, as accurate and as visually pleasing as we know how.
  3. Our professional colleagues deserve our respect, our loyalty, our help and our friendship. We believe in rewarding those who think creatively, take risks, maintain perspective and exhibit decency. Profitability is an important thing but it is not the only thing. We do not believe that business is a game, a battle, a strategic campaign, or 'us vs. them'. We believe business is a sustained human effort. Business success, we believe, is built on survival, reputation and a not taking ourselves too seriously.
