Chick-Fil-A Leadercast

May 23, 2011

There I was, working away in our itty, bitty home office, sipping my coffee, when I looked over and gasp! saw this grease-stained fast food bag laying on my desk.

And it was empty.

After getting over the initial shock of who, in their seemingly healthy, right mind would as order something that arrived in a grease-stained fast food bag, I picked it up.

And it said something kinda interesting.

Leadercast? Something resembling personal development on a…on a…on a grease-stained fast food bag?

That’s kinda outside of the box (err, bag), and I think I like it.

Also, the list of speakers for the event? Not too shabby. The COO of Chick-Fil-A, author and blogger Seth Godin, leadership expert John Maxwell, journalist and author Suzy Welch, personal money management “expert” Dave Ramsey, etc, etc, etc. Not too shabby at all.

(The quotes around Ramsey’s expert title are mine.)
(I’m sorry.)
(I couldn’t help myself.)

So, Leadercast. I realize it’s kind of pointless to be highlighting an event that’s already said and done, but this is neat. It’s just…neat.

I guess this is me giving Chick-Fil-A a high-five. Way to go, Chick-Fil-A, folks! Keep the motivation coming. You might be helping Americans everywhere break their New Year’s resolutions, but at least you care a teensy bit about their motivation levels and leadership skills.

And while we’re doling out accolades and pats on the back, I think we need to discuss your spicy chicken sandwich.

Oh. My. Goodness. do we need to discuss your spicy chicken sandwich…
