How Chick-Fil-A Understands This

I feel extremely fortunate to work for Chick-fil-A; it’s been an amazing ride for over 30 years. One of the things that is the most rewarding are the responses I get when people find out I work for the chicken.

Often, their first question is, “Which one?” (That’s a great reminder that our business is in the restaurants – not at the home office.) When I tell them I work at the headquarters, you can often see a moment of disappointment in their eyes, but they quickly move to share a recent experience from a visit to one of our restaurants. Thankfully, it’s almost always a positive story!

20 Habits Of Highly Unsuccessful And Ineffective Leaders

Being a leader is not an easy task. You need to guide those that follow you to achieve a common goal.

It has been said that a motivated worker is a productive worker thus a leader must also be a good role model.

A quote from John Quincy Adam  says,

If your actions inspire  others to dream more, learn  more, do more and become more,  you are a leader

The Three Top Priorities of a Great Church Leader

Time is a valuable asset. There are not enough hours in the day for a church leader to achieve everything they could do. Some of the things leaders spend their time doing produce a low return while other things produce a tremendous return or benefits.

Great church leaders are stewards of their time by concentrating on certain top priorities. Those areas include personal devotions, training and equipping staff and volunteers, and building and strengthening relationships. Spending a large portion of your time and energy in those areas will allow you to be a successful church leader. Let’s discuss each one of those areas.

1. Personal Devotions

Self-leadership is essential for every church leader. In the context of church leadership, this means being able to lead yourself toward and concentrating on the Creator. You have to place your relationship with God higher than anything else. One of the best ways to remain closely connected with God is through daily devotions and implementing regular spiritual practices.

5 Types of Problematic Remote Employees (and How Leaders Can Help Them Succeed)

Both managers and their employees love the idea of remote work.

From the employee side, remote work offers comfort, flexibility, and an alternative to a long commute into the office. In fact, a third of American workers say they’re willing to take a small pay cut in exchange for such an opportunity.

From the management side, remote work gives businesses the flexibility to run a little leaner because of reduced overhead costs.

But remote work arrangements require managers to place additional trust in their employees — and for those employees to earn that trust by proving they’re able to do good work from wherever they are.

This is a challenge for many people, especially first-time remote workers. A kitchen table or a corner seat at a cafe is a cozy place to work from, but those environments can be surprisingly distracting.
