The ladder of success.
Something many attempt to climb, but so few reach the top.
You see, like any other fast food place, the vast majority of Chick-fil-A employees start off as “Team Members” (basically cashiers).
However, unlike most fast food restaurants, Chick-fil-A opens up endless doors for those who are willing to walk through them.
Take Tyrell, for example.
Tyrell joined our team just over a year ago. Starting off as a cashier, I remember watching him on his first day.
We all saw something special.
You see, there’s two types of people in the world, those who fear the unknown, and those who embrace it.
I remember watching Tyrell make an ice cream for the first time. The swirls were uneven, the cone was messed up, and he was using the wrong kind of ice cream.
But that did not matter.
What mattered was that he tried.
Tyrell saw what needed to be done, and he had the courage to try and do it.
That spoke volumes.
Over the past year, Tyrell has been promoted three times. The sweet and shy young man, now running busy lunchtime shifts all on his own.
Like a true leader, Tyrell does not demand or expect perfection from his team members.
Instead, Tyrell leads by example.
Day in and day out, showing all of us that the only way to reach the top of the ladder, is to embrace the climb.
