Meet Grant - Liberty University 2015 Graduate in Public Relations and Marketing

I originally joined X.C.C.L. to gain experience on how to effectively run a business so that one day I can become a business owner. It wasn't until I was in the program for a couple months that I realized the potential to actually be an Owner/Operator within Chick-fil-A. I hope to gain more experience on how to truly lead a team efficiently towards our goals.

Personal goal I have for the program are by the end of the 2 1/2 years to meet the expectations of my mentors and that I have grown other individuals on the team.
After the program, my goal is to enter the LDP for Chick-fil-A Inc. which can lead me into being an operator at Chick-fil-A. I believe my experience would also be good to launch me into a long-term career with Chick-fil-A Inc.

Meet Stephen - Liberty University 2016 Graduate in Human Resources

I recently joined the "Center of the Universe" Chick-fil-A leadership team this past May. I have always had a passion in the development/growth of people; and how, as a leader, I can play a major role in this area. I saw through the Leadership Development Program I had an opportunity to not only grow as a leader, but to impact others in their growth as leaders as well. I was also intrigued by the fact that I would be working for Chick-fil-A, and who wouldn't love that? 
I have some personal development goals that I would love to polish up on during my time here. I want to continue to develop my operational skills of the business because I am still relatively new. But as a leader, I want to continue to develop my overall leadership skills as a whole. With that said, I specifically want to continue to strengthen my communication skills since this is so vital to everything we do. 
 While I have only been working at Chick-fil-A for 3 months now, I have developed a passion for the business. I truly love what I do and the company that I work for. I am strongly considering my pursuit in becoming an operator of my own Chick-fil-A. I know this is attainable because I have the leaders and mentors in place to help me along the way.

Meet Jonathan - Liberty University 2016 Graduate in Marketing Analytics

I recently graduated from Liberty University. I have been enjoying my experience at Chick-fil-A in the Leadership Development Program. The program is challenging and exciting as I strive to learn the ins and outs of the business. The position has forced me to step out of comfort zones, quickly take on a leadership role, and work closely with my peers to accomplish store goals. I hope to operate a Chick-fil-A store in the near future, and with Howe Rice and his crew, I know I will be able to succeed.

Meet Jazmine - Randolf Macon College 2015 Graduate in Vocals

 I have been working with Chick-fil-a for several years. Fortunately, I knew that as soon as I graduated from college I would want to be a part of this wonderful opportunity and journey. I have personally grown from this experience in just the past year alone. I have also had the time of my life getting to know and grow with others that share a similar passion with me. I have been given so many opportunities throughout this program that I will never take for granted. I currently have the privilege to be the Director of Operations; all because of this journey. My big dream is to one day become an Operator of my own Chick-fil-A franchise. I know and believe that with the help of God and also with the help of the great leaders around me, I will one day become that Operator. This program is the jump-start to my beautiful journey. 

Meet Tony - George Mason University 2013 Graduate in Economics

I joined the Chick-fil-A Leadership Program because I wanted to apply my education and experience towards a company and a staff that I both firmly believe in and enthusiastically enjoy. Since committing to the program, I have become increasingly more confident in my commitment. I have never worked for a more vigorous team dedicated to excellence, team work and service. I intend to use this program to more thoroughly complete my leadership training and develop the skills necessary to cultivate a strong team around myself as my leaders have for themselves. In the years to come I hope to either add a unique leadership to an executive team or perhaps even operate my own store(s). I am excited to discover what this program will develop in me.
