Chat Highlights

  1. Why is there a false narrative that servant leaders have to be “soft”?
  2. While considering core values and how that’s been successful for Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Academy program, how have you had to consider making those principles relevant to audiences/regions where their foundation of values may be different?
  3. Kevin’s life and career passion is speaking and writing about leadership. He talks more about his inspiration around leaders having an influence that leads to action.
  4. Kevin talks about the importance of always seeking a better perspective as a leader. “How you view things changes how you do things.” He talks about how a changing perspective to lead to radically different results can help us move out of COVID-19 into a brighter future.
