Chick-Fil-A Leadercast


This post is going to be a little different… I attended a Leadership Conference this past Friday with over 120,000 other leaders in over 750 locations across the globe… I am going to share my notes and several comments from others… While sitting at a conference, it’s very hard to take notes and gather as much as you can, so I use both my iPad & twitter to take and have a record of my notes…

So, here you go!!!


“Complexity is the enemy of clarity”

“Growth creates complexity, which requires simplicity.”

“What is your one-sentence job description?”

“If you’re the only hot dog stand in town, you’re hot dogs don’t have to be good.”

“What are we doing? Why are we doing it? Where do I fit in?”

“Dirty little secret of leadership: Leaders don’t always have all the answers.”

“Poor delivery trumps content, if your a terrible speaker, doesn’t matter what you are saying.”

“The mist in your mind will eventually become a fog in your organization.”


“Rules are externally applied but standards are internally owned”

“Don’t focus on winning, develop a culture of success”

“Being an outstanding leader is an everyday thing.”

“A good leader puts his people in a position to be successful all the time.”

“Leaders create an environment that is conducive to success”

“A good leader recognizes that no job is too low for him; every job/role is important.”

“In order to learn you have to get out if your comfort zone.”

The most important thing about leadership is : communication”

“Two is better than one when two perform as one.”

“Never delegate. Always empower.”

“Every job in our organization is a job you should be willing to do“.

“When you say something is important, you back it up with a personal move”

My Point: I really want to share some of the insight that I have gleaned from this conference, but if it’s just information… Then WOW, you can read…here’s another quote, “Action Produces Traction”… Go do something with it!
